Since men fashion has always influenced and inspired the woman lot it is no surprise why Fall/Winter 2012 features some of the most edgy options of brogue style shoes for the women. Here are the forms the style of shoe has taken for the approaching Fall season:
The Brogue Boots:
Typical to the Fall/Winter season it is normal for the boots to secure the first option when it comes to the various footwear categories. Most of the styles are incorporated in this style of footwear. The height may vary from design to design but that doesn’t hamper the aesthetics of the shoe.
The brogue boot that was a part of the Candela collection by Gabriela Perezutti at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is a two toned delight for the fall and a great example of serious fashion. The style was also spotted as a knee length option laced up all the way upto the knees and was aptly matched with a short winter outfit for Custo Barcelona collection by Dalmou brothers at the same fashion week.
The Brogue Wedges:
Comfort is one of the top most priorities when it comes to picking the perfect footwear and wedges usually provide that. Ergonomics play a huge role when it comes to footwear and the brogue wedges by Dima Neu are of a league where ergonomics, current trends and high fashion blend perfectly together.
The Punk Brogues:
If one is remotely aware of the different aesthetics the two word spell, punk and brogue are hard to imagine together. However, the Fall/Winter 2012 has melted the two strikingly different ideas of fashion together and the result isn’t distorting at all. Dima Neu’s studded brogues with ample heel is one great way of wearing the brogues style with the most casual outfits and works aptly for some winter punk by styling these with denims or leather pants. The rebellious style at its best!
The Pump Brogues:
The feminine pumps when combined with the masculine brogues results in a perfect match in the fashion ideology. Zuzu Kim’s interpretation makes a powerful statement and the shoe is drifted away from the formal look of the brogues and softness of the pumps to something that s fashionably fierce.
