 Brogues are in! How cool is it that we can be comfortable, yet stylish at the same time. Not always the case when it comes to shoes. I must admit, I was never one to put on shoes that look like I was about to go bowling, but my recent manifesto of  ‘life is too short to not try a new style’ certainly got me hunting for a pair. I went with a neutral tan, allowing myself to slowly ease into this trend. And I am in love! These are such comfy shoes, I can certainly see myself investing in a few more colours! So it’s here to stay and you’ll probably see me wearing them around a little more this winter 🙂

Shop my style here:

 Lee Cooper Jeans: Big W / Top: Rose & Gold / Shoes: Sportsgirl (on sale) / Bag: Trenery (last season, but similar ones on link) / Necklace (knotted it up myself): Blue Bungalow

 

Tip when wearing brogues:

# if you aren’t use to wearing them, start with a neutral colour. It’s much easier to wear, without attracting too much attention.

# show some skin! between your jeans and shoes that is 🙂 (here I folded the hem of my jeans up just a little)

# be confident in them. walk like you’re on heels!

# they may be a little more on the masculine side, but a pointy toe one can certainly still give you a more elongated look.

# pair it with a man bag if you have one – sure to give you a casual street style glam.

# feminize your outfit with other accessories, earrings or a necklace.

    • Yes I have seen those silver ones..and she wears them well! I was never really a brogue girl, but thought I’ll give it a go. And now wear it lots! My hubby though thinks its too much of a bowling shoes look. But I still love them…and wear them. LOL!
