Brogues: a style of low-heeled shoe or boot traditionally characterized by multiple-piece, sturdy leather uppers with decorative perforations (or “brogueing”) and serration along the pieces’ visible edges.
I have been harbouring after a pair of brogues for a while now. My wardrobe was rather disparaging without them, and my outfits were lacking a certain je ne sais quoi.
I sourced this perfect pair from River Island. They aren’t leather but this doesn’t concern me with a pair of shoes that will probably be cast to the depths of fashion redundancies this time next year.
I love the style of these shoes. I think the buttery-brown colour is so rich and Autumnal and goes idyllically with so many outfits. I wore them today with black tights, a tube skirt paired with a silk blouse. But they also marry perfectly with harems, floaty dresses and lace ankle socks.
I really like the hook-and-eye detailing, giving the shoes an authentic touch and the cute chintzy floral lining offers a sweet finishing flair to the brogues.
I just love them and am toe-tapping my merry way through the golden glisten of the fallen leaves.
Are you a believer in Brogues this season?
