This season's fringed shoes may be free-spirited, but they've nothing to do with boho. In fact, with their boyish shapes, mixed-media wingtips, and spritely toe shapes, they're more gamine golfer or pixie pilgrim than anything else — and they're all the more fun for it. Herein, find 22 cheeky styles sure to make Fall dressing a breeze.
Fall's menswear-inspired brogue trend is at an all-time high thanks to all of the cute styles currently available online and in stores. We love the idea of wearing them with tights and felt skirts for a dressed-up look and, on the flip side, with rolled jeans and a cozy sweater for a cool off-duty ensemble. Any way you wear it, we guarantee it'll look good on you. To help you find the best pairs, we culled our top 15 brogues — from this magnificent colorblocked confection from Fendi to more classic silhouettes from Bass — at all price points and styles for you to shop now.
The start of a new year brings a great opportunity to reflect — we can look back on what we accomplished, and make resolutions for the coming 12 months. I always look forward to cleaning out the old closet and making room for fresh new pieces. With less than 48 hours until a brand-new year, I thought it necessary to highlight some of the things I'm planning — and coveting — when the clock strikes midnight. Click through to see my 11 style resolutions for 2011.
Traditionally, brogues, often known as wingtips in the US, are low-heeled shoes made of heavy leather, originating in Scotland. They are usually laced, and sometimes the design is applied to loafers as well. They are considered men's dress shoes, but lately, it has become popular for women to wear brogue heels or boots, often with stiletto heels.
