Him and Her – How to Style Brogues

The masculine brogue shoe has been a fashionable asset to any girl’s outfit for a while now, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere fast, but when it comes to the brogue in the man’s wardrobe, it’s practically a staple.

So whether you’re a girl or a boy, how do you wear the classic shoe that is the brogue?

Her: Play on Contrasts

So you have the perfect brogue shoe, but you’re not entirely sure how to wear it. The most playful and easiest way to wear a masculine shoe like the brogue is to play on contrasts.  You have a boyish shoe, so why not wear it with something feminine.

Perfect for a date night when you don’t really want to wear heels, pair a brogue with a cute tea dress for an adorable look you’ll love.  Go for schoolgirl chic with a pair of girly socks or wear with tights for comfort.

Him: Smart and Classic  

The brogue can be dressed up for a smart occasion or office wear, but they are versatile enough to be dressed down for something more casual.  A classic way to wear a pair of tan suede brogues is with a pair of slim, dark jeans, a crisp shirt and a blazer.  When it comes to choosing a shoe, splash the cash and invest in a really high quality pair that will last you season after season.

Her: Suit Up

Go all out for a masculine look.  Our previous “Her” look was all about contrast, but this one is about playing up androgyny.  Pair high shine or bright and bold brogues with a black tuxedo or dark trouser suit, and complete the look with a smoky eyes and a cherry red lip.  This is the perfect look for an evening occasion for something different to the regular cocktail dress.

Him: Colorful 

For a subtly rich and tonal look, choose a shoe in a different colour to traditional black or tan.  A two tone brogue makes a statement without being over the top, which is exactly what you want in a men’s shoe.

We’re not talking anything too bright and garish, but a brogue in navy or subtle green could set an outfit off perfectly.  Roll up your jeans, show off your ankles and wear with a relaxed blazer for the ideal off duty look.
