Brogues are a men’s shoe rack staple that have passed the test of time. Existing outside the constraints of seasonal trends, brogues truly are a timeless classic, injecting a touch of British elegance into your collection. With so much variety in colour and style, a brogue shoe or an oxford are easily paired with a huge variety of outfits, making for a much smarter go-to than your beat-up trainers. Whether you’ve got a wedding to attend or simply a city to wander, here are 4 ways to style brogues with fan favourites, Ted Baker.
#1 Classic formalwear
When you’re wondering how to style brogues, suits and formalwear will likely come to mind first. When trying to find the perfect pair of brogues for formalwear, the simpler the better is a good rule. While a pair with lots of detailing and embellishment is beautiful, you can’t beat a sleek plain pair with a perfectly fitted suit. A pointed toe works well for a formal occasion, ensuring that your shoes get the attention they deserve under your suit trousers without feeling too much or out-of-place. For ultimate suave styling, opt for a pointed toe brogue in a patent or well-polished leather. Whether you’re dressed in coat and tails, or a simple workday suit, you can’t go wrong with the classics.
