Hi. If you haven’t read my small post from the other day you can find it here. I couldn’t possibly address that matter and move on to talk about clothes and fashion. Things have still been bugging me mentally about it. I know I live far away from my hometown and haven’t lived there for quite some time, but I know a handful of people who had a family member there. After reading different social media posts from survivors, texts that they have sent their loved ones and this video I am so proud to call Santa Clarita my home. I’m proud that in this dark time they can come together and help those families that are in need.
The parents of Gracie Muehlberger wrote a personal letter for the Saugus Strong Vigil, which was held Sunday night. There is a gofundme account for Gracie to memorialize their daughter you can find the link here.
Today I am talking about one of my favorite trends….. WHITE SHOES. Sneakers specifically. FOR HIM and how to wear them from fall to winter.
I’m not talking about wearing your white chucks and grey sweatpants that you wear after the gym or on Sunday’s. I’m talking about adding a white shoe to your formal wear and elevated casual looks. I love this trend so much because it’s most definitely a street wear thing.
A lot of you guys think that white is a summer shoe, but you can wear them with anything…whether it’s corduroy pants, a blazer and jeans, twill pants (colored pants in men’s terms), or with your blue suit after work for meeting up with drinks with the guys… etc.
WHERE TO YOU START – Start by adding a white shoe with your blue blazer, fitted jeans and a button down white shirt. Then keep trying different things the more… and more comfortable you get. Like an all black look with white sneaks…. yes. Top that with a leather jacket.

I can’t even tell you how sexy it is when I see a guy wearing a suit with white shoes. It’s like an understated statement. It says I mean business but I like to take a little risk with getting these white shoes. Maybe I’m getting literal but I’d like to get to know that guy.
FOR THE MORE CASUAL GUYS NOT INTO WEARING SUITS OUT – That’s totally fine. Start with a fitted pair of jeans, a nice jacket (maybe a bomber/fitted jacket) a white shirt and white sneaks. That’s a perfect first date outfit for this time of the year.
Below I styled this guy white a twill pant, white tee and white sneakers. I’d throw a dark blue bomber to complete the look.

IF YOU ARE DEBATING BETWEEN A LEATHER OR CANVAS SHOE – The first rule of white shoes is there are no rules with white shoes. It doesn’t matter. You already know for myself I have both because I wear white shoes religiously. Start out with the cheaper canvas then invest in a leather pair. Below the vans are a good start.
