Put your best foot forward in some new season shoes. Women admit they’re the first thing they notice on a man and we agree they can definitely make or break an outfit so take heed of these styling tips to make sure your treads are on point…
Season upon season, a great pair of formal shoes are 100% necessary in any man’s wardrobe. These styles tend to be more classic and timeless, they’re often not the sort of shoe a guy want’s to replace every season! However, there are subtle shifts in trend. At the mo wing-tip and brogue styles are dead cool and come highly recommended. They’ll stay on trend for a good couple of years and beyond.
This is usually the footwear choice us guys struggle most with. It’s not that hard though lads, you just need to make sure you have the right go-to pair which will team effortlessly with dark denim, chinos and a skinny formal trouser which covers all spectrum of smart/causal bottoms. There’s a few shoes that can really rise to the challenge, these suede desert boots, a classic Oxford shoe or a less formal brogue (maybe with a rubber sole or some modern detailing).
Often (and wrongly), people think that picking a casual shoe is the easy one. But we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, there’s a big difference between casual style and careless style. There’re plenty of occasions where your tired old white pumps, covered in marks and rips, just won’t cut it. That’s where these basketball boots come in. Pick them up in one or two colours, add in a couple of pairs of our low top plimsolls to your inventory as well in different shades and you’ve conquered the casual footwear dilemma.
John Wayne once said “If everything isn’t black and white, I say, ‘Why the hell not?’” And we couldn’t agree more. Set to sky-rocket this season, the monochrome trend is easy to pull off, effortlessly cool and really versatile. Here are 2 easy looks to try, one is casual and ideal for a day out in town followed by a few bars, the other is slightly smarter for a dress down Friday followed by some post work pints and dinner with your lady friend!
Make this trend work for you even when the occasion calls for a smarter style. A skinny fit black shirt is flattering, add acid wash black jeans to give the look a bit of texture and team it all with black desert boots which are the ultimate smart/casual shoe!
Listen up lads, our favourite foodie, the founder of Gran Luchito, has some real top tips to elevate your chef game to the next level…
“Staying in is the new going out when it comes to impressing your Valentine. Who wants to sit like sardines in a noisy, over-priced restaurant only to find yourself telling your date: ”I could’ve made that at home…and I would’ve seasoned it properly”? Well, why not put your money where your mouth wants to be and cook up a love-storm in the comfort of your own kitchen?
Here’s the Gran Luchito Guide to impressing with food this Valentine’s.
Make it Look Good
It’s true what Nigella preaches, flavour should always be your priority when it comes to cooking. But that doesn’t mean you can ignore what it looks like. Presentation is still key!
It says to your loved one that you’ve put real time and effort into not just packing your chef-d’oeuvre with big flavour, but also making it look a million dollars too. Remember that odd numbers make for aesthetically pleasing plates. For example, garnish your espresso martini aperitif with a trio of coffee beans rather than just the two!
Do Your Research
Chances are that if you’re going all-out on cooking a Valentine’s showstopper, your relationship is in its infancy (these days my mum is lucky to get a baked potato). So for god’s sake, make sure you do your homework. Be smart and ask a few subtle questions well before the day so as to leave yourself plenty of time to get your hands on that natural truffle oil that she loves, or those rare Mexican smoked chillies she can’t get enough of. It’s all about effort.
Don’t be Afraid to Freestyle (A Little)
This tip is to be taken with caution. The ability to adapt a recipe to include your guest’s insatiable love of Wagyu beef is a very attractive trait in a potential lover. It shows you listen; it shows you can afford Wagyu beef; but more importantly it shows your willingness to improvise. Don’t forget to leave the recipe book lying around in plain view so your creative flair doesn’t go unnoticed.
Give some Thought to Flavour Combos
If you’ve watched any cookery programs on TV recently, you will have heard them going on about marrying complimentary flavours. Stop ignoring them, it’s worth thinking about. Don’t be pairing a big fruity Malbec with a delicate scallop risotto. Research your ingredients and make those flavours work for each other. No matter how young your relationship, it’s never too early to think about marriage (of flavours, obviously!).
There you have it. Four top tips for all you aspiring Ainsley’s or hopeful Heston’s to guide you through plating up something special this Valentine’s.”
