If I were a boy, even just for a day I wouldn’t wear brogues.
I have really big feet – UK8/US11 – and I would be scared of appearing to have clown feet, but they’re slowing becoming a celebrity favourite.
Agyness Deyn has been wearing brogues before they were deemed “cool” and other British girls such as Emma Watson and Sienna Miller – in Rupert Sanderson – have been seen wearing these shoes recently.
Last night the trend went stateside as Olivia Palmero was spotted wearing a silver pair at the “BlackBerry Tour Launch Party”.
Brogue shoes can complement a preppy look or add contrast to a ultra cute girlie ensemble. The two-tone ones are the most appealing.
I think by Fall everyone will be wearing these shoes. Topshop have a very large selection of brogues instore and online.
I think this is one trend we will not see Heidi Montag jumping on.
Marc Jacobs metallic lace-up brogues £170
Rupert Sanderson Laura leather brogues £395
Christian Louboutin Fred glitter lace ups £380
