Spotted – Trending Summer Street Style

Boating is as synonymous with “summer” as the sun is itself. Once the staple shoe of “well-to-do” gentlemen everywhere, boat shoes have graduated from simply being paired with cargo slacks, blazers, and polo shirts for a smart casual look, to being worn everywhere from the office hallways, to a walk in the park, to a run to the grocery store. Essentially, they’re everywhere and worn by everyone.

The classic look of boat shoes gives you a feeling of being dressed up but not overdressed, casual but not too casual, and fashion conscious but not fashion snobbish. In the image above Australian blogger Micah Gianneli pairs her Sperry Top Sider boat shoes with leather shorts and a floral leather bomber jacket for a smart, clean look that is still very edgy!

Here’s a look at a few of our favourite summer street styles featuring boat shoes!
