Toning down a bright men’s shoe

Many men are afraid of stepping close to the Dandy line for fear of tripping up and somehow crossing over into wildly flamboyant. But even a pair of bright aqua shoes can remain on the understated side if paired with the right colour palette. Outside the Paul Smith men’s show in Paris, this gent paired his with army green and olive tones, bringing casual pants and bold shoes together with a plush velvet jacket.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
