Business casual shoes, number 3: monk strap shoes

Likewise, the more broguing you have on the shoe, the more casual it is. Apart from the color, leather texture can also have a huge impact on how it is perceived. For example, suede shoes are always softer and more casual. So for example, a dark brown suede shoe will look about as informal or casual as a regular polished leather tan shoe. Overall, it is very important that your shoes work well not just with the rest of your outfit but with the socks and the pants in particular because they are right next to your shoe.

Business casual shoes, trade, service and sales industries:

If you work in the service industry, in sales, or other trade positions, chances are you still have client contact and even though it is not required of you to be well dressed, and sometimes it may come off as aloof or not appropriate, people will still judge you and if you look frumpy in sweatpants, people will think less highly of you, they will assume that you are less competent than if you would wear let’s say a nice dress shirt with a pair of chinos. If you are just at the office and never have client contact, your employer will likely have specific ideas of what is acceptable and what is not. If that is not your office, just stay clear of sneakers because they are quite casual and not work-appropriate shoes.
