The beige or checked trench coat is an iconic piece of the classic wardrobe. Its timeless elegance can be emphasised by the right choice of shoes. Here are our suggestions on how to find the perfect harmony between your trench coat and your shoes.

Flat ankle boots or with heels add a cool touch and are perfect for an outfit that you can wear to the office and then to a restaurant. If you prefer a sportylook, choose white leather sneakers to create an elegant contrast between the classic lines of the trench coat and the casual look of the trainers.

03 What shoes to wear with an oversized suit jacket?

The oversized suit jacket trend has taken over the catwalks and streets, bringing a new dimension to fashion and feminine-masculine codes. However, choosing the perfect shoe to go with this bold piece can be tricky.

No matter which shoes you choose, make sure they are visually balanced. High heels, pumps or heeled ankle boots can balance out the volume of the oversized jacket by elongating your silhouette. Ankle boots with a pointed toe are also a good choice. For a more casual style, loafers with notched soles and high-top sneakers create an interesting contrast to the formal structure of the suit jacket.
