Matching Dress Shoes With Dark Or Light Brown Pants


Visitors: 375


Do dark brown pants go with a black shirt with camel brown shoes? If I am wearing light brown pants with a white long sleeve shirt, do I wear black or brown shoes?


Dark brown pants can be coordinated with camel brown shoes. It is not a problem. However, for it to be well-coordinated, I would not choose to wear it with a black shirt. It just doesn't match well between black and brown especially because the colors are too dark for each other and the colors do not blend with each other. Some better color choices I would recommend dress shirts (whether single colored or patterned) to be either white, yellow, lighter shades of brown, or light shades of orange for a good color match. These colors should be your main background colors if you are considering patterned dress shirts. Remember to wear a brown color belt when wearing brown colored shoes. If possible, keep the brown tone of your belt similar to your shoes. Therefore, your belt should be light brown color to match the camel brown shoes.

As for your second question, you can wear both the black shoe or brown shoe against your light brown pants and white shirt. If you choose the brown shoes, then it would go very well with darker brown shoes since it matches two brown tones against each other. Black is just as suitable since the darker tones makes a good contrast against the light brown pants. You can also consider going for burgundy or oxblood colored dress shoes.
