Don’t know how to pair your shoes to an outfit you have in mind? We’re here to give you 5 fashion tips on shoes that go best with some outfit ideas. Heads up: We won’t be focusing on pairing outfits and shoes by color. We already have a blog post on that. 1. CONSIDER THE OCCASION, WEATHER, AND ACTIVITY Wear the appropriate shoes in relation to the dress code. It’s true; footwear can change an entire look to make you look casual or polished. But before we dig deep into this blog post, it’s vital to pick the right shoes depending on the occasion, season, and activity. When it comes to the occasion, wear the appropriate pair depending on the dress code. If you’re invited to a formal banquet, wear dress shoes or heels. If it’s just a hangout, opt for comfortable sneakers. Think about the season too. If it’s stormy, put on a pair of water-resistant shoes to avoid them and your feet from getting wet. If it’s hot out, go for sandals or flip-flops. If you want your feet to breathe, go sockless in moccasins and loafers. If you’re going to stay on your feet all day long, prioritize comfort over fashion. It’s okay if you own a less trendy pair of shoes. As long as you’re comfortable in them, your feet will smile all day long. If you don’t know the right shoes you need, figure out your foot shape by taking the wet test. 2. HOW TO PAIR WITH JEANS Wearing jeans is a regular fashion fad we follow in our daily lives. We love to have them on to appear casual. But of course, you can look more relaxed if you’re wearing the right shoes. You can also add a bit of sophistication to jeans. Here are some suggestions. Match your jeans to a set of old-school high-top sneakers. They give your outfit a street-style look that screams to the world that you love being chill. Be more urban with urban-styled socks. Our Retro Sikasoks can elevate your street look off the charts! High top sneakers and jeans give your look a mix of street-style and comfort. If you love mixing formal and informal attires, put on a pair of brown or black loafers with jeans. The colors blend perfectly well with your jeans’ colors. The entire combination will bring out your inner classiness while appearing easygoing. Let your look scream confidence by going sockless. Go for an elegant yet easygoing look by pairing loafers and jeans. And of course, who can forget about the trendy white sneakers? They work with jeans and can transform your whole outfit to look on fleek. Also, wear a white top to make the jeans pop out and be the outfit’s central piece. White sneakers and jeans are always a good idea. Like loafers, high heels can add a touch of elegance with jeans. At Sikasok, we encourage you to be bold. Instead of the usual heels, rock your denim look with a pair of avant-garde or open-toe heels. They guarantee to bring your hidden poise out in the open. High heels and jeans create an elegant mix. 3. DRESSES: BESIDES HEELS If you’re going to a formal event, it’s inevitable to wear a dress with high heels on to abide by the proper dress code. Suppose you get invited to an informal occasion. Will you still go for high heels? We don’t think so. If you already suffer from pain during formal situations, then there’s no need to do that in your regular life too. The more you wear heels, the more your feet are at risk. Wear sneakers with dresses for a relaxed and casual look. Wear sandals with dresses if it’s too hot outside. In your daily life, ditch high heels and go for sneakers when styling in a dress. They give you a casual and relaxed outer facade. Not only that, but they spare your feet from screaming in agony. Depending on your outfit, choose the right shoe color to go with it. Note: DON’T WEAR JOGGING SHOES WITH DRESSES. Your sophistication will die if you go down that road. Like we mentioned earlier, think about the season you’re wearing shoes. If it’s sizzling, you most certainly are not going to wear heels or sneakers. Opt for sandals that suit well with a sundress. While slaying it in your whole summer outfit, you’re letting your toes cool down and breathe some fresh air. 4. JOGGERS: RUNNING SHOES OR SNEAKERS Go for joggers and sneakers or jogging shoes for a casual look. Admit it, having joggers on is very satisfying after a long week of wearing tight pants. Let your feet get in on the action too with running shoes or sneakers. Put on some Nike, Yeezy, or Converse shoes to pull off that laid-back style. We even suggest going for printed joggers to add more street style to your attire. 5. CONSIDER THESE SHOES WHEN WEARING A SUIT Wear sneakers as alternatives to uncomfortable dress shoes. Similar to women’s heels, men’s dress shoes can also provoke pain due to their tightness. Here again, you can go for sneakers, but let them be dark or match your pants’ color. It can look weird if you have a pair of red Converse on with a black outfit. We remind you again not to wear jogging shoes because it makes you look tacky in a suit. 6. ALL SHOES WORK GREAT WITH CHINOS Chinos give you the golden pass to wear any shoes you want. Chinos resemble suit pants but are less formal. They give you the green light to wear any shoes. Go for dress shoes if you want to look classy. Put on loafers or boots if you want a mix of formal and casual. Wear some sneakers if you aim for a kicked-back appearance. You can also rock a sockless look in chinos. A refresher on choosing shoes to go with your outfit’s style: 1. Go for high-top sneakers, loafers, or sneakers with jeans, 2. Dresses equal heels



Who says hats are only for sun protection? They can upgrade your outfits too! Whether for the beach or just plain fun, we’re going to help you elevate your look with hats with these 4 fashion tips. Hold on to your hats and start reading! Not funny, but we tried. 1. CONSIDER THE SEASONS We wear hats all year round, but not all of them work for all seasons. Pull off your look by wearing the right hat that works best for a particular season. In winter, we want warmth and coziness. Go for wool-knitted beanies to keep your head warm. Wear wool-knitted beanies in winter for warmth and coziness. The weather gets warmer in spring, and you can finally frolic in Mother Nature. You go for lighter clothes, and that includes your hat. Go for a boater hat with a blouse, skirt, and dress. Choose colors that portray spring’s ambiance, such as red, green, pink, yellow, and orange. You can refer to the color wheel to choose the light colors to pair your hat with your clothes. Choose colors like yellow to reflect the season’s blooming colors. Put on boater hats and dresses to get into the spring mood. When we move to summer, it’s all about kicking back at the beach and getting some color. Go for straw sun hats that resemble your tanned skin. You can also wear boater hats that share your swimsuits’ colors or summer’s ambiance: pink, blue, and white. In summer, go for straw hats that match the color of your tanned skin. Alas, fall comes in and puts an end to summer for the year. But it isn’t over for your hat’s effective presence on your outfit. Lieutenant or boater hats work well in the fall. Let them match your boots’ colors to transition your fashion from colorful to neutral. It’s the perfect metaphor for the changing seasons. Also, put on a cardigan or coat to complete your comfortable and casual fall fashion. Match your boater hats to your boots to transition from bright summer to neutral fall fashion. Wear cardigans to set up a comfortable and casual look for fall. 2. ACCESSORIZE YOUR HATS  Admit it; it’s pretty boring to have a plain hat without anything cool on it. Well, you’re in luck—hat accessories exist! They glow up your hats and outfits to make your style more fun and extend the accessories you have on. Add pins to your headwear for an urban and street-style fashion. You can pull off the look even more with our Retro Sikasoks. You can also add metallic buckles or sash bands around hats to match an accessory you have on. How about matching your hat to your bags, nails, or jewelry? Add hat accessories to make your style more fun! 3. SIMPLE HATS WITH PRINTS DON’T WEAR PRINTED HATS IF YOU HAVE A PRINTED ENSEMBLE ON. They won’t upgrade you if you end up looking like a walking stripe. Go for a simple hat with a color that matches any part of your clothes. You can also reverse that: Wear a printed hat with an outfit, matching only one color from the headwear. That way, you can reduce the distractions and focus on one of the contrasts your hats or outfits make. Keep your hat simple if you are wearing prints. 4. MIND YOUR FACE SHAPE Before thinking of pulling off a hat, think about your face shape. You don’t want to get a hat that doesn’t work with your face structure.    If you have a round face, go for hats that give you some height, like trilby hats. If your face is long and oval, a lieutenant or boater hat suits you best. They make your face look shorter. If your face is squared, go for a sun hat that adds curves.   Consider your face shape to pick the ideal hat for you. Let’s go over the basics on how to match your hats to your outfits: 1. Think about the season, 2. Add accessories on your hats, 3. Put on a simple hat should you go for printed outfits, and 4. Think about your face structure before considering a hat.
