Clockwise from top

Espadrilles

Don’t feel like showing off your toes? Well, this is an acceptable alternative. They’re at home in the mall and at the beach. Ideal with shorts, but they also work with slim-fit chinos.R599 Aldo

Tanju slip-ons

Slip-on shoes make for a quick change if you’re heading to the gym at lunchtime. Wear them with distressed denims, a gingham shirt and a woven belt. R1 000 Pointer at Edwin

Plimsolls

These stripy numbers will spice up any casual outfit. Got a date? Rock them with chinos, a V-neck T-shirt and a two-button blazer. R120 Mr Price

Abrico trainers

When wearing bright colours like this, make sure you keep the rest of your look simple and neutral. You want the sneakers to be the hero, so avoid adding elaborate accessories. R999 Le Coq Sportif at The Lot

Boat shoes

When darkness descends you’ll need something a little more sophisticated than your flip-flops. These suede numbers are perfect with shorts, jeans or chinos. R1 350 Led Bradford at Lacoste

Anniversary sneakers

White canvas sneakers are the foundation of many easy, summer looks. Simply roll up your chinos and try to keep them grass stain free – although a little bit of scuffing couldn’t hurt. R450 Superga

Ankle boots

Ankle boots have a slim, simple shape and are the ultimate smart casual shoes to wear on weekends. Think of them as a slicker alternative to leather boots. R1 500 Ted Baker at Stuttafords

Brogues

If you looking for smarter shoes, two-toned canvas or leather brogues are your best bet. These favourites will see you through dates, interviews and social gatherings. R1 000 Levis
