You probably associate brogues with menswear and rightly so, but this season sees influencers and celebs sporting their brogues with feminine dresses, skirts and skinnies. Brogues in general are flat lace-ups with detail on the top. Scroll down to get some tips and ideas on how to pair this manly trend with outfits to take you through the winter months ahead.

I’ve paired my Green Cross brogues with H & M skinnies, a Country Road striped top and a Zara blazer

Victoria Beckham wears her two tones with an all black ensemble for workwear chic!

Leather pants never seem to go out of fashion and paired with a soft sweater, denim jacket + brogues = yes please!

Alexa Chung’s oxblood brogues are fab aren’t they?

A long white shirt+ fitted blazer works well with skinnies + silver brogues = hot!

Love these shiny brouges worn with an all black ensemble elongates the silhouette, topped with a scarf and trend of the moment- tucked in hair

Long coat + brogues + denim = fab; the dash of red neckerchief balances the red detail in the jeans

A mid length jacket works proportionally well with rolled up pants; so chic and elegant with heel brogues

Platform brogues are the way to go worn with skinny blue denim and a kaftan- I’m still looking for a great pair that are comfortable. (I bought some from Zara last year but they gave me blisters and I haven’t been brave enough to wear them in!)
