Before we move on looking through street style ways on how to wear these shoes, I’d like to make it clear and let you know what are the main differences between brogues and oxfords. Brogues are well known for their decorative pattern that goes along the toe and edges. I love to see brogues with the cap of the shoe forms a design which looks like a W letter. Oxfords are named so because of their closure/ shoelace eyelets and plain cap. Women can be confused, as oxfords can look like brogues. Some Oxfords have brogues details, that’s why people call them brogues. Anyway, I don’t want to confuse you, that’s why we better look through my favorite street style images and see how to wear these beautiful, menswear-inspired shoes in real life. If you want to keep things casual and relaxed, then you should try on these shoes with denim pieces, like skirts, jeans, shorts, denim vests, shirts and jean jackets. Personally, I recommend to try on cuffed straight-leg or boyfriend jeans to show off the beauty of brogues of oxfords. If you do want to look boyish, then you better keep your outfit menswear inspired. For instance, try on suits, boyish blazers, jeans to create daring everyday looks. If you think your outfit looks too much ladylike, then you better tone it down by adding feminine details and accessories, like fedora hats, clutches, handbags, silken scarves, etc. How about wearing brogues or oxfords with dressy shorts, dresses or skirts. The result looks stunning, crazy, ladylike and glamorous. You can make some fun by wearing brogues and oxfords with classic prints and patterns, like checks, tartans, polka dots, plaids, etc.
