Jodie wrote a post a while ago about every shoe looking good with some kind of outfit. So I asked her what to wear with brogues. Because I have a pair of brogues that have been in the closet for a few years now because I just don’t know how I’m going to wear them. Jodie came up with the idea of making a post about brogues together. Well I won’t say no to that.
First of all, I really enjoy doing something with other bloggers and Jodie is a blogger that I have been following from the very beginning that I started blogging. Jodie gives you the feeling of belonging to a family. And she is colorful and loves accessories. Her blog, Jodies Touch of Style, is all about having fun with fashion and includes 3 different women in different decades of their life.
5 Styles of how to wear brogues
Jodie came up with the idea of wearing brogues in five ways. Because we are so different, I mean I love dark colors and simple looks, I think it’s interesting to see how we wear brogues. We are going to show you 5 ways of how you can wear brogues.
Brogues with jeans
Here I have worn the brogues with jeans. This is my only pair of jeans, yes I have a pair of denim culottes too, but I’m already wearing culottes in this post. I don’t like this design of jeans with brogues. With these jeans I think that something with heels would look best, I have not worn flats under these trousers yet and I don’t think I will again.
I think skinny jeans would look great with brogues and a long cardigan on it, for example. mm, I happen to have skinny jeans in my Zara cart. The blazer is one that I haven’t shown you before on the blog. I like the length of the sleeves, three-quarters, and the wrinkled detail. Often I wear a blouse or sweater like this, with the sleeves popping out under the blazer or cardigan.
Wearing with a dress and knee socks(because then they look like boots)
For this look, I chose one of my favorite dresses. My pre loved Diane von Furstenberg dress bought in my beloved England. When Jodie suggested this way of wearing brogues I thought, no, that’s for young girls. And guess what, I think this is the best look! It’s playful and fun. I thought this was a really surprising look.
Wearing brogues with a skirt and tights (because then they just blend in)
So here I am wearing the brogues with a skirt and tights. I feel like I really need to make the shoes look a bit cooler otherwise I find them to look frumpy quickly. So wearing such a lovely pleated skirt, but with a somewhat sporty blouse and a large chain necklace and leather jacket. I didn’t choose thicker tights because I don’t like them at all under the pleated skirt, maybe under a different skirt, I haven’t tried that yet.
Do I like this look? I am not sure, perhaps with a knitted sweater it would look better.
How I used to wear them, with chinos
This is how I wear the brogues. Well actually not, because this was the only time I have worn them. With chinos. But with a feminine blouse on it otherwise it will look a bit androgynous. Which I like by the way. I always liked these kind of trousers a lot, but when I look at this photo, it is from a few years ago, I think, no, we are past that time. But I think I will try to wear them with these trousers and a short jacket.
With more flowy trousers
I have had these culottes for years and I always like them very much. In my head yes, because every time I see a photo with these trousers I think, no. I don’t them anymore. Brogues under a flared trouser leg? Not for me. It gives me a bit of a clown feeling. Can you picture it, these trousers in yellow, and then the brogues in red underneath, I mean that….
The nice thing about this post was that as I wrote the text for the photos, I suddenly saw completely different outfits with brogues that could work for me. This is one of the great things about working with other bloggers. You inspire each other and Jodie certainly inspired me to wear different styles of brogues. I would love it if you also take a look at Jodie’s blog, to see how she styled the brogues.
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
