8. Do Your Shoes and Belt Need to Match?

Ultimately, our vote is that it comes down to the occasion. For dressier outfits, where you’re wearing a suit or dress pants, matching your belt to shoes is important – and leather finish, if possible!

For casual outfits, like khakis, chinos or jeans, you’ll just want to make sure to wear a complimentary color from the same color family. You have a bit more flexibility, but we still do not recommend wearing brown shoes with a black belt. We also like to keep belt material and finish more casual. For more unusual color shoes, we recommend: anything in the gray and red family we’d pair with black and anything in blues and greens, go the brown route.
