I hear you, Shannon! Brogues (or oxfords) are really happening right now and that is music to my ears after struggling for ages to find a cute pair of manshoes–as I like to call them–to wear (I don't call them manshoes the same way some people say "mandals" and "murse" and "murbans" though!). Everyone's having a sale right now so this would be a really good time to get your feet into some super cool shoes for way less dough. Here are some high and low options for you to try.
Cole Haan Canvas and Leather Oxford $123.90, Nordstrom.
The mix of materials in these Cole Haan oxfords is super cool, but I love that the punch-out pattern sort of resembles a flower which gives it the perfect mix of femininity with the masculine style.
Malcolm Suede Flat $60.34, ASOS.
Brightly colored shoes are always an easy way to punch up a boring outfit, the yellow suede in these is perfect for summer.
Klein Black Contrast Toe Lace Up Brogues $110, Topshop.
A more classic style from Topshop, pair it with flowy summer dresses or maybe with a pantsuit to show you mean business!
Hamiltonsquare Women's Oxfords $59.98, Aldo.
These Aldo oxfords are an update on the classic style with a slightly taller heel and more minimal brogue styling. They will be great with skirts.
Church's Burwood Perforated Leather Brogues $220, Net-a-Porter.
When it comes to brogues, Church's is THE go-to brand. They usually run for over $400 bucks, so this is a great way to have an incredible pair of shoes that will last you a lifetime for literally half the price.
