Fun fact about the Brogue Shoe … when viewed from the top, the toe cap is traditionally “w” shaped and looks similar to a bird with extended wings; hence the common nomenclature for this beautiful + classic shoe, a “wingtip”. Okay, history lesson over. Seriously though, I have ALWAYS been in love with the brogue shoe for its long-standing place in the fashion world + beautiful details + overall look of sophistication and class. This love affair has led me to search for a beautiful white brogue for quite some time … as tall women everywhere can attest to, it is not easy finding cute + trendy shoes in larger sizes. But then I found these!
Stunning right? These beautiful white leather brogue shoes from Long Tall Sally are available up to size 15 (no joke, seriously, check the website). With a luxurious feel, these visually-appealing shoes incorporate a timeless + elegant crimped trim and pretty punched detailing. This delicate detailing + design element is also a secret tip to help flatter a larger foot … when a shoe is visually broken into sections with small detailing, this tricks the eye into seeing smaller sectioned pieces rather than one large, clunky shoe/foot (tall women everywhere can say a silent hallelujah for that)!
For a summer day at the office, I styled these shoes with a pleated skirt, white top and a few accessories to create that polished + professional + corporate look. These shoes would also be work-appropriate when paired with a cuffed trouser or cigarette pant for the warmer months ahead. I also absolutely love that these brogues are a feminine take on a historically male shoe ... and one that men have worn to the office for decades.
A classic brogue shoe is also markedly versatile in that it can provide a stylish + polished update to your weekend wear. This summer, I’ll be pairing these shoes with a cuffed skinny white jean, and some crisp white shorts. As a bonus, the shoe fits true to size, is incredibly comfortable, and a great option for any woman who has a long commute in her daily schedule. Oh yeah, they’re also ON SALE at Long Tall Sally.
