Leathers Should Match Simply put, leather is AWESOME. But this rule isn’t strict. Two things you should focus on matching are
(1) your shoes and
(2) your belt. Then follow-up by means of the colour of your
(3) watch strap and
(4) leather bag – but only if it’s convenient.
Don’t spend money just for that purpose. And it’s important to remember in this case – the more different the colours of your leathers are, the worse of a match you’ll end up with. So, pairing sleek black boots with a light brown belt is out of the question (unless you cover up the belt). Chocolate brown boots are a better alternative here.
Your black leather footwear can go with a belt that’s any shade of gravy (since gravy is a non-colour). But if you want each leather piece to stand out equally – I suggest finding ONE particular colour you like and stick to it. That’s probably what you’ll need to do if your belt options are limited. Most of us have about 2-3 individual belts at home. Buying more could feel like a waste…
