Admittedly, I do have a love/hate relationship with brogues. They can either be a hit or miss depending on the model and how you style it. If the model is somehow to masculine and bulky they remind me of those 2013 please-never-come-back-creepers- trend, something that obviously creeps me out fashion wise. But a brogue with a feminine cut – read: fine looking leather and an elegant slightly pointed toe – is very very stylish. It has the ability to make a look tomboy and smart without going to masculine. But save to say – they do need a dress code. A tapered pantalon or skinny jeans works, wider modeled trousers and jeans don’t. That’s just my honest opinion. You have to seek contrasts and not over do the tomboy look (with boyfriend jeans e.g.) if you ask me. A cashmere top, a very basic singlet or/and an oversized blazer (in love with my new blazer from one of my personal girl crushes the talented Margaux Lonnberg) on top is always a good idea. Me (perfect) pair of brogues are from Manfield, a classic famous Dutch brand with a sophisticated fashion twist. They come in all sorts of styles, but I fell in love with the croc version made out of Italian leather. You should really check out their collection.
