You can't go wrong with a nice pair of versatile casual shoes that you can wear to all sorts of events. Casual shoes come in so many stylish designs that it can be a little daunting to choose the right one that will go with your personal style. So to help you, we've compiled a list of casual shoe styles that are both popular is easy to wear with a lot of different outfits.
The Ultra-Casual Slip-On Shoes
If you're not a fashionista, give this one a hard pass. We admit that this style isn't really common, but you can't deny the stylish laid back feel of these slippers. These slippers are perfect for wearing during the hot summer months when you don't want to bother with socks or bare your feet with slippers. To wear them in the most stylish way, pair them with some cropped pants, a loose or long shirt, and a light jacket.
The Leather Slip-On Shoes
As far as casual shoes go, this style is one of the easiest to pass off as "formal." While you can't wear it to the office or to a formal event, you can wear it with a pair of slim jeans and a button-down shirt to give it a more sophisticated feel.
The Canvas Slip-On Shoes
For guys on the go, this casual shoe is the one for you! They're easy to put on and a cinch to style. Just wear it with any casual outfit and you should be fine. This stylish design goes well with cargo shorts, Bermuda shorts, cropped pants, skinny jeans, and even chinos and khakis!
The Boat Shoes
Undeniably the trendiest of casual shoes we have on this list, boat shoes are making a huge comeback in men's fashion. Boat shoes lend an air of elegance to any casual outfit thanks to its classic style and versatile look. They're comfortable, sophisticated, and come in so many designs and colors!
The Chukka Boots
Chukka boots are possibly the most "formal-looking" of all the styles in this list. These casual shoes may look like a pair of oxfords or derbies at first glance, but they're very much a casual pair. However, they're great for making a plain t-shirt and jeans combo look just a little more dapper.
Think of them as a mix between structured boat shoes and softer slippers. Loafers or driving shoes are so comfortable and simple that they're one of the most common choices for casual shoes (except for sneakers, of course). They're great for wearing with cropped pants, cuffed pants, or skinny stacked pants because of their simple yet stylish appearance.
The Colorful Sneakers
Today's fashion trends are gearing towards more colorful pieces for men, and sneakers are definitely part of the lineup that's getting influenced by this trend! Splatter-painted sneakers also make any pair look more urban, which is why this style is now an essential piece for any fashionista.
The Mesh Runners
Athletic shoes have been worn as casual shoes since time immemorial, which is why running shoes like this mesh pair are popping up in urban fashion looks more often!
The Bright Sneakers
As we mentioned earlier, men's fashion is becoming brighter and more colorful. With so many different designers out there gearing towards this trend, we're not surprised that a pair of bright sneakers looks pretty normal in men's fashion these days. Brightly colored casual shoes like this are great for adding a bit of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. So if you feel like wearing a plain-shirt and some jeans, add a bright pair of casual shoes to the mix to make your outfit come alive!
