If You Wear White Shoes, This Post is for You

This post was written by Lindy Dandy.

Many guys (myself included) like to dance in white Aris Allen captoes (or other white shoes).  Why?  They look sharp  and they highlight your fancy footwork.  (I love my Aris Allens to death; they’re my “go to” on most floors.  Mine have gotten a bit beat up, but I think they’re full of character).

The detail that’s often forgotten, though, is to match those white shoes with a white belt.  You should always coordinate your belt with your shoes, especially if you’re wearing dressier clothes (i.e. slacks or other odd trousers).

In fact, you should strive to coordinate all of your [ugh, I dislike the way this word sounds] accessories.  All leather should match or coordinate.  The same goes for anything metal (watch, rings, belt buckle, cufflinks, tie clips, grill, etc); either silver or gold.  Don’t let it drive you crazy; similar colors will suffice.

White dress belts can be hard to come by, but here are a couple choices:

(remember: your belt size is one size (+2) up from your pant size)

Plain Jane

Crocodile style

Something different

Fun buckle

Casual woven
