DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse and I are back at it again with the #StyleandDeliver program. If you are new to the blog, DSW Canada and I have teamed up to showcase some of the retailers hottest styles over the next couple of months. I am obsessed with their exclusive brand Mercanti Fiorentini. The brand is all about handmade artisanal shoes, which can elevate every man’s wardrobe. Mercanti Fiorentini is handmade in Italy and the craftsmanship is impeccable.
For May, I selected the stunning woven leather cap-toe oxford. The style exudes sartorial elegance and is a fantastic option for a spring and summer shoe. The woven handpicked leather is definitely a fresh take to the traditional cap-toe style. May I add that this is perfect for the wedding season?
To style the woven cap-toe from Mercanti Fiorentini, I went for a business casual look. I loved the contrast of the elaborate shoes with denim, and layered the look up from there. For the spring season, it is still safe to wear a blazer, but to add a pop of colour, I opted for a bright red cotton sweater. A great style tip for wearing a show-stealing shoe is to simplify the rest of the look with accessories. So I opted to pass on a pocket square and went for a simple green knit silk tie.
There are so many other ways to rock these beautiful shoes, from adding a spice to conservative suit – to keeping it nautical with a pair of white jeans.
Let me know how you would style these shoes in the comment section below. Be sure to check out DSW Canada’s website for this style and thousands of more name brand shoe styles for less.
