Final Touch: Styling the Minimalist Black Sneaker
Sartorialists of a bygone era believed the fashion-savvy men matched their shoes to their belts. These days, with the 21st century introduction of the high-fashion sneaker, nothing says “street style guru” quite like a guy who pairs his kicks with en pointe backpack.
To get the look, keep in mind that there’s no shoe more versatile in a man’s wardrobe than a sleek, stripped-down black sneaker, which makes it the ultimate accessory to transition your laid-back summer wardrobe into the accumulating layers of fall fashion. Invest in a pair of slick, minimalist black sneakers – thanks to its tonal stitching, multi-textured upper and full white sole – to pair with a slim-cut suit but looks fierce with a pair of black denim jeans. Nod to the new school of style by pairing these black sneakers with a killer monochromatic black backpack which is accommodating enough to fit a laptop but sophisticated enough with its clean lines and understated zippers to show that you also care about style. Top off your look with a pair of retro-inspired black aviator-inspired sunglasses and a blue denim jacket.
