Here we are in 2009 and the Wingtip/Brogue/Jazz Shoe/Loafer (whatever you want to call them) has been making a steady comeback since late summer 2009.
I love this trend and hope it sticks around--long live The Female Dandy!!
Heidi Klum (too perfect to be human):
Heidi is tall and skinny so she could look good in a garbage bag. I love this type of shoe with a cigarette pant. Very Audrey Hepburn.
a boring reality star with great footwear. Not a fan of those old Boyfriend jeans with the two-tone Brogue. It's a bit overkill.
Amber Le Bon:
Yes, that Le Bon. Adorable...like her Dad. Her Brogues are more feminine because of the heel but the outfit would still work if they were flat because of her legwear--it's an anchor.
little cutie pie
her shoe choice is more of a Jazz shoe. The Brogue has a bigger heel. She's one of the worst actresses ever but she does have great style. These type of shoes look great with a short skirt/bare leg.
always a Fashion Do, even in penny loafers. Again, it's all about the cigarette pant, bare ankles.
Not sure who this is but she looks great. These shoes look better with a bare leg but if you must, opaque hosiery is fabulous, too.
Here's another example of someone attempting to dress these shoes up. This isn't for the faint of heart as it's hard to pull this look off. I like this look on her but on someone else? Hmmm...not sure.
I love this look. It's messy but looks like she thought about it. Katie is really coming into her own (and has made it on my blog 2x!) in terms of style. She should just do this: dress well. Clearly, Hollywood isn't working for her and nobody needs to see her sing and dance again. Oy!
The shoes are a surprise because they contrast well with the casual khakis. I love that patent leather upper/tan bottom combo of the shoe.
Now, I'll leave you with a Fashion Don't
After she works on changing her choice in men, she should address her style. Hideous, to say the least.
It's a shame...she's gorgeous.
