Style Notebook: Spring-Summer 2022 Footwear

Spring is an opportunity to play with your footwear. Here are five options—oxfords, sandas, and low-cut sneaks—for every stylish traveler.

The Dressed-Up Cool

An undecorated Oxford in cream, white, or gray, plays off the formal-casual vibe exceedingly well. Pair it with a crisp white shirt, a calming pair of blue trousers, and a waterproof trench coat in case spring showers mar your day.

The Colored Sneaker

Candy blue? Why not? When paired with a complementary color (orange, in this case) your choice of footwear shines all the more.

the Sandal

I’m not one to tell you to lose your rubber flip-flops—there’s a time and a place for it. However, when you want to channel sophistication even though you’re baring your toes, a leather sandal with military touches is the better alternative.

the White Sneaker

Despite its stark quality, a white sneaker is probably one of those footwear types that can ostensibly go with everything in your wardrobe. You can don them with your swimsuit (just don’t go in the water) or—if you are brave enough—swap your patent loafers with them to go with a tuxedo.

The Go-Anywhere

Travel with them, wear them when you’re hanging out at your friend’s house, or slip them on when running errands. Shoes of this type will be your to-go pair for most of life’s activities.
