The Many Faces Of The Formal Shoe

By shinychris on August 29th, 2012

The variety of styles, colours and looks of formal shoes is growing day by day. Long gone are the days of just being able to choose between a black pair and a brown pair, and having to have shoe laces, too. Here’s a look at some of the many new and traditional faces of formal shoes.

Here’s an example of the traditional formal shoe, I just mentioned, right? Wrong. It has much more to it. A traditional formal show with a contemporary twist:







The subtle studs and interesting soles make this shoe ideal for the young entrepreneur who wants to dress for business, but keep his rogue flair intact.






Bold colours are becoming ever more acceptable in formal shoe wear, and it’s also highly popular. These flash red formal shoes can be worn to a posh dinner party, as well as to a wedding to really show off with your style.








Having no laces on your shoes would’ve not that long ago been completely unacceptable, as only six hole shoes were deemed as formal shoes. These no lace and more loafer styled shoes are very popular due to their boot like appeal.








These Jasper boots are borderline formal. You won’t get away with them at a business meeting just yet, but times are changing so keep an eye out for these two leather style ankle boots.

These formal shoes and many more mens shoes are available from House Of Fraser. Be sure to stop by and take a look.

Sale pick: J. Lindeberg jeans

By admin on July 1st, 2008

jljeans.jpgNow that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.

Something you should know is that J.Lindeberg run their clothing in indie sizes (i.e a size smaller than they are). So although these are labelled as straight leg, they fit like slim jeans.


Linea Purple jumper

So you want to jump on the purple trend.
Good choice. The only thing is, you don’t want to spend too
much on an item you could fall out of love with in a couple of months. While
most sales at this point only have neon green drainpipes left, House of
Fraser’s online store has this purple
from Linea.

If you bought it at full price, prepare to
feel like a dickhead. A massive dickhead. They’ve reduced the price from a
wallet busting £45 to the miniscule price of £30. I know, I know, I’m still
reeling from the shock myself.
