Since my last post about Justin Timberlake’s style evolution I started to take a closer look at well his style. One thing I found is, he really likes to wear suits with tennis shoes. What do you guys think about that? I personally think it’s really fun but be careful there is a place and time for everything. And you don’t need to be Mr. Timberlake to pull it off.
Here are some tips to help you if you decide to follow this trend:
1- There is a place and time for everything. You can definitely combine a suit with tennis shoes but it all depends on the occasion. If you are going to work definitely check on the culture of your job. A lot of companies are getting more casual like the tech companies and pharmaceutical industry. At a recent visit to the Genentech headquarters in San Francisco I was amazed to see the employees could even wear jeans and tennis shoes. If you are going out then you are the boss and it’s your call. Mr. Timberlake often makes red carpet appearances with his tennis shoes and a nice suit.
2- Wear a simple sneaker like converse or vans. Don’t try high tops or anything too busy like a sneaker with to many colors.
3- Socks? Yes wear socks and have fun with it. Feel free to wear colorful fun socks. I would try to stay away from the white athletic ones though.
4- As far as the suit, try too look for a casual suit to pair with your sneakers, nothing overwhelmingly fancy.
5- If its your wedding and you want to add some of your young fun rebel personality to your girlfriend’s dream day lol ask her if she is OK with all the guys wearing sneakers. I have seen it at a friend’s wedding and it was pretty cool (as long as the woman agrees lol).
