First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden is gracing the cover of Vogue magazine’s August issue.

As the cover star, Biden, 70, is seen in grins as she poses from the White House balcony, shot by Annie Leibovitz.

In the new issue, which would be out July 20, Dr. Biden addressing the magazine (FLOTUS), discusses about the numerous drives she needs to handle during her husband Joe Biden’s administration.


Dr. Jill Biden feels Joe’s calm attitude has helped shift the entire mood of the country since he got down to business.

“When I travel around the country now, I feel as though people can breathe again. I think that’s part of the reason Joe was elected,” she said in a profile cover story. “People wanted someone to come in and heal this nation,

“He’s just a calmer president. He lowers the temperature,” she added.

Vogue magazine features Jill Biden as it’s cover star only half a year into the Presidency term. It broadly censured previous First Lady Melania Trump by declining to include her on its magazine during her husband’s whole turbulent stretch in the White House.

Asides from former First Lady Melania Trump, who was never highlighted on the cover, past First Ladies have graced Vogue magazine throughout recent decades.

7 Office Casual Footwear Men Should Check Out

Published

on

By

Footwear or shoes in general are part of what makes our dressing and outfit complete and perfect. Especially in a business environment like the office the type of shoes we rock is very important because firstly it has to be very comfy. Today on almaplusblog, we will be checking out some casual business shoes for guys.

There’s no denying that shoes can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of any outfit. So, when you’re aiming for a specific dress code, carefully considered footwear is essential. For business casual attire, that means picking a pair of shoes that appear both stylishly relaxed and suitably corporate. Thankfully, there are several styles which you can always rely on to give your everyday office wear the easygoing polish it demands. Add a pair of each of these business casual shoes to your work wardrobe, and you’ll never be over or under dressed again.

So here are 7 business casual wear every man should own.

1. Loafers

If you don’t already own a smart pair of loafers, it’s time to add some to your collection. These slip-on, laceless shoes are an essential item for any man and can easily be adapted to a business casual setting. To do so, try rocking a pair of brown or black leather loafers with chinos and a button-up business shirt. Just remember to keep your shirt tucked in and add a matching belt to ensure a suitably polished appearance for the office.

2. Oxford Shoes

A lot of men make the mistake of thinking Oxford shoes can only be worn for formal occasions. However, that’s simply not true. When styled correctly, Oxfords can suit a variety of occasions, including those that have a business casual dress code. To wear Oxfords to work, pick a pair in black or brown leather. To ensure you don’t appear overdressed, be sure to avoid patent designs. Of course, if you’re still feeling a little too formal, you can always opt for Oxford’s more casual cousin, the Derby.

3.Derby Shoes

The Derby is another classic dress shoe style and an excellent addition to any business casual wardrobe. Thanks to their timeless and minimal design, Derbies work great with a wide range of outfits. The key to making them look great in the office is to create balance with your outfit. To do so, try wearing classic leather styles with more relaxed ensembles and suede designs with more formal looks.

4.Monk Strap Shoes

The monk strap is sleek yet cool enough to take you from 9 to 5 and beyond. Their formal and sophisticated design ensures they’re appropriate for the office while their unique and stylish appeal also means they can work for after-work drinks and weekend events. When shopping for monk straps, we’d suggest going for a shiny leather design for a refined yet statement style.

4. Chelsea Boots

Boots may not be the first shoes that spring to mind when you think about business casual footwear. However, they can actually be incredibly stylish and comfortable and can create an effortlessly refined look. They feature a round toe with elastic sides and can slip on and off quickly without laces or a buckle. As such, they achieve a cleaner aesthetic than other boots.

6. Chukka Boots

Since booming onto the men’s fashion scene in the ’40s, Chukka boots have been a staple item for the business bro. Chukkas are a round-toe, ankle boot, with two or three lacing eyelets. Traditionally featuring just two panels, these are minimal and professional shoes that are still stylish enough to add an element of casual cool to your corporate attire. We’d suggest a suede pair in a muted color such as tan or beige. Pair them with your favorite skinny or boot cut jeans or chinos and a polo or short sleeve button down. For the colder months, these shoes also work great with sports coats and casual trenches.

7. Dress Boots

Casual clothing and street-wear have been slowly creeping into the business world for some time now, so you shouldn’t shy away from adding an edgy pair of dress boots to your rotation. They can be a great way to let your personality shine through while keeping your look professional. From Chelsea and chukka styles to brogue and Derby designs, there is a lot of variety, so you shouldn’t struggle to find a pair to suit your style and dress code needs. Dress boots traditionally come in black, brown, and tan. However, other colors are available. We’d suggest going for a muted shade and styling them with a slick pair of chinos, jeans, or trousers.
