Most of the ladies out there will have a pair of shoes for every occasion; they will have about five pairs of shoes for work, 10 for going out and another 20 for casual occasions. This may be slightly stereotypical; however, it is much less likely that a man will have a large selection of shoes in their wardrobe. Why shouldn’t men have multiple pairs of shoes to cover any event? If you are a man wondering what shoes you should be considering, then take a look at some listed below!
Countryside and Walking
If you are a country man who loves those long walks with the dog no matter what the weather is like, then Dubarry Boots are perfect for you. Not only are they warm and comfortable, they are also waterproof, so you can go out in any weather. Dubarry Boots are also great for a number of other outdoor activities, including horse riding, fishing and sailing!
Formal and Going Out
If you are more of a formal and social kinda guy, then you will want some fairly posh, going out shoes. Why not take a look at some Jeffery-West’s? They are formal and good-looking, so you can’t really go wrong. Even some of the big stars, like Russell Brand, Noel Fielding and Phillip Schofield wear them!
Running and Exercise
Are your the type of guy who likes to keep fit? If so, then a lovely pair of running shoes will do just fine. Now, these are different to any other running shoe you may have seen, but the Vibram FiveFingers shoe is very lightweight and comfortable; they give you the ‘barefoot’ feeling. It may be different to a regular running shoe, but it is sure worth a try.
If you prefer the more casual look, then maybe consider either some Hey Dude shoes or some Trickers. The Hey Dude shoes are fairly lightweight and they could potentially be the most comfortable shoe you own! However, the Trickers have been designed especially for casual use, so go for whatever you prefer. Remember, it’s not just women who can have shoes for every occasion, you can too! Choose some shoes to match your style, whether that is casual, formal or sporty, and make some room in your wardrobe for your new selection of shoes. If you buy quality shoes now, then you will not have to buy again for a while. About the Author: Shelly loves anything fashion related and enjoys sharing her knowledge and tips with others.

Liven Up Your Winter Wardrobe With Fantastic Colors
Are you interested in finding some outfits for yourself that will allow your look to really pop? In the current dreary climate it makes sense to want to stand out against a bland landscape and a wardrobe dominated by grays and blacks, but you want to do it right. Here are some great colors to add to your wardrobe to help you avoid the winter blues.
The latest fashion trends have this deep red color showing up everywhere. It's dark enough to fit in with the rest of the winter color pallet but still helps to add some character to your outfit choices. Consider adding a rich burgundy sweater to your wardrobe; it will make a beautiful outfit choice to go with jeans, black pants or skirts, so you can be sure you'll get plenty of wear out of this new item.
Initially, you might think twice about this color--after all Halloween's over. However, a few carefully chosen pieces can help add some true flair into your wardrobe. For example, a well-cut long-sleeved dress can look fantastic with a pair of black boots. Otherwise you might also want to consider a coat in this color. It will definitely help you stand out, and the right piece can also help you look completely on top of the latest fashion trends.
Along the same lines as orange, many budding fashionistas might hesitate at the thought as yellow isn't a color traditionally associated with winter. However, selecting the darker, mustard version can help you blend the traditional with the unique. This color can look great as a scarf draped around your neck, as a dress or even as a sweater. When paired with black it will actually look quite classy.
Rose is a color that is frequently overlooked for winter because pink is so strongly associated with spring. Fortunately, the darker shades of this beautiful color have been strong across the fashion world this season. Rose can look great as a sweater, scarf or any other accent piece. It's a great color for boosting moods; who can feel sad while wearing pink?
This stunning color is a great addition just about anywhere in your wardrobe. It will look fantastic as a skirt, sweater, hat, mittens, scarf or even jewelry. It's a perfect accent to the traditional grays and blacks associated with winter and can help liven up any outfit.
Although not strictly a color, leather has had a strong opening for the fall and winter seasons this year. In real or faux form, this material would be a great accent addition to your wardrobe as well, especially as an accent. Think about getting started with items such as your handbag or shoes!
Adding color to your wardrobe is an easy way to help raise your spirits and those of people around you. Winter was once associated with only dark, boring colors and shapeless outfits. Now we know this does not have to be the case. Get started adding some of these colors today!
