Classic boyish shoes such as brogues and oxfords may have first broken ground in the early 20th century as outdoor and country footwear, but they are still staples in every girl’s shoe wardrobe that will last for years to come.
There are two schools of thought when it comes to this shoe trend. You can either contrast the masculinity of the look with feminine pieces in floral prints and layers of soft pastels, or you can embrace the androgyny with boyfriend blazers, crisp white shirts and tailored pants.
Boyish shoes are polished alternatives to ballet flats and sneakers; but when choosing these kinds of shoes, do it with caution. Be sure to purchase those that flatter your legs and feet. Then bring out your creativity and style your own pair into the perfect outfit that is definitely Savile Row worthy.
Wingtip brogues with dainty perforations live and breathe the classic schoolboy look. Throw a chunky sweater over a leather skirt for a tough but girly twist, just like Alexa Chung.
A certain charm
Always flash a bit of ankle when you’re wearing boyish shoes to keep a sense of proportion to your look. A denim jacket and a pair of cropped pants paired with these shoes bring out the modern Annie Hall in you.
