Brogues, Brogues, Brogues!
They’ve been around for many years and well, we’ve all seen them around. We’ve seen them on the street. We’ve seen them in our favourite shop window. We’ve seen them on really cool looking peoples feet and we’ve all lusted after this look for ourselves.
Not sure how you can incorporate a brogue into your wardrobe? Well look no further!
There’s the usual advice. For instance – ‘how to wear brogues with dresses or pants’, etc but how about taking it that 1 step further?
Lets take this all the way.
Here is your ultimate guide to wearing brogues different! Cherri bellini Italian street style different! And don’t think you cant do this – everyone can wear brogues its up to you how you wear them – the bolder the statement the better!
(Or however you like – its totally up to you.)
1. Bold and beautiful: colour me all the ways!
Make the brogue the focal point. Its all about wearing your footwear as the star attraction. Don’t be afraid to buy a brogue in a crazy bright colour. Whats that I hear you say? You dont wear red, or yellow or green so how can you wear a brogue with nothing to match it?
That is the POINT!
No need to match when its the shoes that sing. Repeat after me – the brighter the better! The bolder the better!
2. Super dressy.
As in black tie dressy: patent and metallic all the way!
Remember when you were little and your patent mary-jane shoes were ONLY for those special occasions? Nothing much has changed if you ask us. Except wearing your special shoes all the time but lets not regress here!
Patent and metallic leather equals dressy in our opinion and if its dressy you want, patent leather is what you should get.
3. The clash.
Here is our advice – put on your favourite outfit that you would normally wear with say, your favourite flat strappy sandals or a cute high heel, actually put it on. Like right now.
NOW PUT ON BROGUES FOR INSTANT CLASH FACTOR!
See, that was easy right?! The key here is to put an outfit together, whatever it is, and pair with brogues for an instant street feel.
If at any point you think a particular outfit wont suit a brogue, then challenge yourself to see it a different way.
Break the rules. We dare you.
4. Classic with a twist.
Twist the tried and tested basic brogue and lift the look with some super fun laces and different coloured fringes!
(We sell gold and silver metallic fringes and they are awesome fun!)
Or take it one step further and invest in a classic brogue shape – but with a metallic finish!
Fashion should be fun, effortless and ultimately an extension of you.
Do what you want.
Dress how you feel.
Break the rules.
We do. You should too. Have fun!
