Whoever said brogues were only for boys hadn’t perhaps heard of the newest fashion trend! Brogues can also be worn by us and they can be an equally versatile option. Not only do they make great conversation starters, but they can very nicely jazz up your outfit too! Let’s check out different outfits and how to style them right with some pretty brogues!
Show Some Ankle
The first and foremost rule of rocking brogues the right way is to show some skin around the ankles. This means, your outfits should end just above your ankles. So whether you are wearing pants or skirts; make sure your ankles are in full view. This will ensure that there is a good sense of balance in your outfit.

Denim with Them
Don’t be afraid to mix and match! Brogues look amazing with jeans and any kind of pants for that matter. Whether you are wearing boot-leg or skinny jeans, they will look good with any kind of jeans-even coloured jeans. Don’t forget to roll them up and snow some ankles!
Dress Them Up
Brogues are essentially men’s shoes, so they have a little bit of masculinity about them. But the best way to style those men’s shoes is to add a bit of balance to them and settle down on dressing them down. You can easily wear brogues with dresses and flirty skirts. You can look playful and flirty at the same time with these brogues.
Tailored to Perfection
For a more formal and official look, brogues totally cut the mark! You can wear them with tailored pants and make a very elegant look. Brogues and pants are a must if you don’t want to look too overdressed. But yet again, don’t forget to show some ankles. Since this is a little formal look, you may have to use socks, but again that doesn’t mean you can’t show some ankles!
Jazz them up with a tuxedo
Now this is a look which is a little hard to pull off, especially because it involves pairing masculinity with masculinity. Both the brogues and the tux are very masculine and you need quite the bit of jazz and confidence to run them up! It is more of an androgynous look but you can add a little bit of feminine touch by using something like a smoky eye and a red lipstick.
Maxi Dresses and Brogues
Never thought brogues could be so versatile right? Thankfully, this is one pair of shoes which can be styled with almost anything and still look good! It is more of a Boho look and creates a very offbeat kind of outfit.
Making Them the Statement Look
Brogues can also be the centre of attraction for your look. If you decide to wear metallic or really striking brogues, they can become your statement piece! Don’t forget to roll up your jeans for maximum effect.

So you see brogues are one of the most versatile pair of shoes that you can own. You can literally style them with almost everything! What are you waiting for? Go buy a pair of brogues!
