Hey, I'm Charles, we are at Louis Purple in New York and today we're gonna talk about how to pair a pair of sneakers with a suit. So, it's actually pretty simple and there's a few guidelines to respect. First of all let's talk about the style of the suit you're gonna pair it with. So you want to avoid having a suit that looks too formal, so here I'm wearing a cotton navy suit with an unstructured shoulder. So that gives already a kind of relaxed and casual feel to my outfit. The knitted tie also help to kind of give a relaxed feel to the outfit. So, here I'm wearing a pair of white Converses. I like when I mix and match these kind of items to avoid having too much break which is more reserved to like business purposes, I would say.
When wearing sneakers with suit pants you want to have almost no break and if you like a little bit of break, just keep it to a strict minimum. So just remember, if you want to pair sneakers with a suit, just make sure you're not gonna shock anybody in your work environment. And it's always something that's gonna give a casual feel to the outfit, so it's nice to pair it with a knitted tie, a cotton or linen suit. And maybe you can coordinate the shirt with the color of the sneakers. So this is how you pair sneakers with a suit.
