I am in need of new shoes for winter and my pick for this Autumn/Winter season is the Brogue. I did a post on brogues last year and they are now starting to appear in stores down here so I am off to snap up a pair I spied in none other than the Australian Women’s Weekly (I know!).
My inspiration for these versatile footwear came from none other than my go-to blogger, Garance Dorè.
Other brogue inspirations have come from all over, but the Prada Spring/Summer 2011 collection of platform brogues are right up there for me, the colours alone make them look like licorice all-sorts.
Katherine Hepburn in her wingtip brogues, you can’t beat this look for it’s classic masculine/feminine appeal.
When I told my husband that I was going to be sporting brogues this winter he was horrified. Why? I don’t really understand his reasoning, but he is under the impression that brogues have had their day and he even regrets wearing them back in the 90s. As I haven’t worn them before I figure that it’s a look that must be investigated so I disagree with him entirely of course!
