BORROWED FROM THE BOYS

The boy-meets-girl shoe trend has been around the block before now, but our fave celebs Cara Delvingne, Kate Moss and Ashley Roberts are bringing it back up to date and making it an easy footwear trend to pinch and there are lots of styles to choose from! Mix up this old school style and see what a versatile wardrobe addition they are…

Brogues have the biggest following and have even been spotted on the red carpet once or twice! Loved by Pixie Lott, Fearne Cotton and Taylor Swift it is easy to see why they love this comfy style item that actually looks better with wear! This simple lace up flat shoe is a smarter alternative to ballet pumps and great for all seasons too, wear in black or tan for a classic feel.

Styles shown are Clarks Compass Realm Silver Brogue, Carvela Label Silver Loafer and Clarks Hamble Park4 Brogue.

 

Another style we’ve pinched from the boys is the ‘monk strap’ shoe  (the ones with the buckle strap across the front!) Victoria Beckham made these acceptable when she recently wore them with bare legs and a simple dress leaving her trademark stilettos at home for once and Clarks does a fab leather pair! Wear your androgynous flats with anything from skinny jeans, tailored trousers, cut off denim shorts or a girly dress to soften the edge on your borrowed-from-the-boys look Pixie Lott style. They really do go with everything! Whether you want a smart look for work, to tone down a glitzy outfit or for a casual vintage feel for a festival there is sure to be one to suit you.

Sports Luxe doesn’t have to mean looking like Sporty Spice in the 90’s! Up your game with some cool kicks not for the gym. Choose from wedge hi-tops from Miss KG and ASH, retro feel trainers, brights from Nike and metallics to give yours the edge and go for it! This trend has only just begun and is set to explode for Spring 2014 so get ahead of the ‘fash pack’ and lead the way now! For style tips copy Cara Delvingne and wear yours with super skinny jeans and a baseball logo top or for a completely different look flash a little leg and layer up a floaty dress for the perfect boy-meets-girl ensemble, simple!

 

We guarantee if a pair of boyish flats aren’t already one of your top wardrobe staples they soon will be!
