Loafers vs brogues

5th July, 2016

This season it’s all about the loafer or the brogue. Both comfortable and stylish, they’re the perfect shoe options when you’re bored of boots and ballet flats and want something to change up your winter footwear repertoire. Whether you’re a loafer girl or a fan of the brogue through and through there are plenty of great options to have you stepping out in style this winter.


Leather loafers are a great alternative to the trusty ballet flat. A pair in basic black will see you through the season and beyond, however if you want to something a little more fun why not try a pair in a vibrant Gucci-esque red or a cool leopard print. Alternatively, neutral tones such as a camel or tan will complement most outfits and not completely overpower. The key with this look? A flash of ankle is important so be sure to pair them with cropped pants or jeans or a midi hem.

Steal a little style inspiration from the boys this season with brogues. They’re a more polished alternative to sneakers and just about as comfy. I know I wear mine to death as I love how they help ground an outfit but in a practical sense they’re comfy enough to help me keep up with a very active toddler! You can opt for classic colours such as tan or black however I went for a silver for something a little different plus metallics are a no-brainer for the evening so they’re a good option for dressing up an outfit for a night time event. As with loafers my tip is to always flash a bit of ankle to create a sense of proportion in your outfit. You can pair loafers with feminine pastels and fun prints or if you want a slightly more tomboy look, add a blazer and boyfriend jeans.
