What to Wear With Our Acorn Brown Men’s Oxford Shoes?

Whether you’re going on a hot date, attending a wedding or painting the town red, this guide will help you find the best outfits to go with our new Dawn Acorn Brown Men’s Oxford shoes.

If you’re wondering what to wear with brown men’s Oxford shoes, then you’re in the right place. To celebrate the arrival of our classic Dawn Acorn Brown Calf Leather Percy Strides, we’ve put together a handy guide to ensure you get the style right.

Unlike other men’s brown Oxford shoes, the lighter, yet striking acorn tone requires a tiny bit more thought on colour matching. However, it’s worthwhile once you know what you’re doing.

Dark browns are ideal for conservative getups and classic looks. But if you want to make a statement, light brown (acorn) dress shoes are the way to go. They’re a powerful way to soup up your wardrobe and make you look dapper.

Wardrobe staples

Our Acorn Brown Oxford shoes are very striking, so you’ll have to think about basic colours when wearing them in everyday life.

Trouser wise, dark blue jeans in a skinny, straight or roll-up style are bang on the money. However, you can opt for a black shade with acorn shoes if you’re feeling adventurous. Although, black is an absolute no-go if you go for any other shade of brown.

You can’t go wrong with a solid white tee/shirt and black pea coat accompanied by black jeans to help highlight the bold acorn brown Oxford shoes.

Or for dinner dates, ditch the white tea and go for a dark or light blue denim shirt for a smart/casual vibe. The P80 from Shirt By Hand is a fine choice.

If you’re ever unsure on whether your outfit is too challenging to the eye, be sure to match the acorn shoes with another garment or accessory in a matching colour to bring the whole thing together. A perfect example is this leather acorn belt from Tricker’s.

Blue through and through

When you’re thinking about what to wear with brown shoes, we wouldn’t usually recommend black. But the unique acorn tone is in a league of its own.  

Although, if the thought of combining these two colours sends shivers down your spine, you should stick to blue outfits.

For smarter occasions or office wear, get yourself a pair of dark blue/navy trousers, an acorn brown belt, smart gold watch and a subtle baby blue and white striped formal shirt. Do not, I repeat, do not, go for a flamboyant striped shirt as you’ll give colleagues, friends and loved ones a headache.

Similarly, a soft blue and white check shirt can elevate your outfit too and won’t overpower your Acorn Percy Strides. We particularly like this Emma Willis blue check cotton shirt.

When the rain is pouring, a smart navy rain mac can help you bridge the gap between practicality and style. The Idle Man have an ideal buy with snap button closure for only £109.00.

Light grey is an option

If you’re on the hunt for a wedding outfit to go with our men’s Acorn Brown Oxford shoes, light grey can work. The amazing contrast between the two colours is a real treat on the eyes.

Combine a light grey suit and our Acorn Oxfords with a white shirt and rich maroon tie. It’s an outfit that demands attention and will definitely turn a few heads.

Or for a safer bet, a dark blue tailored or skinny fit suit with a matching tie and white shirt is perfect.
