[ 0 ] June 22, 2012 |

It never fails. Every year, trendspotters predict The Brogue will be The Summer Shoe of Choice for In-Style Women. And this summer is no exception. But there’s a good reason: brogues are a fashion classic that never go out of style.

If you’re blue, the solution is black and white. To be worn ironically, the tuxedo brogue is stolen from men’s formalwear and made popular by boho chic celebs and scenesters.

What started as bog-slogging shoes, brogues (so named for the water-draining perforations in the upper) are now considered more formal. But you know what? Forget that. Pair these with jeans.

Anna Sui Lindley Oxford by Hush Puppies
Shoe Metro price: $82.99     MSRP: $155
Carl Perkins (and some Southern guy) made these famous when they sang of Blue Suede Shoes. You don’t need to swivel your hips when you wear them out, but you might not be able to help yourself.

Pour La Victoire Iva 1
Shoe Metro price: $105.99     MSRP: $300
With animal print uppers, these snakeskin brogues make a real statement. Perfect for day time…positively sinful when night falls.

Joie Louie Louie
Shoe Metro price: $85.99     MSRP: $225
These are the brogues you need to have. Slim, snug, worn without socks and with a frilly skirt, this is the summer look for urban trendsetters. Google ‘Sienna Miller brogues’, you’ll see what we mean.

So even though we’re calling them a summer trend to watch for in 2012, brogues have taken their place as a style icon and a timeless classic.  Are you ahead of the curve? Are brogues already a go-to choice for you?  Tell us about your favorite pair in the comments.
