Paris Fashion: Seen on the Streets of Paris

Posted in fabulous fashion finds


Originating in Scotland, brogues have been adopted by Parisian women for me to see all over the streets of Paris. Almost a Paris fashion uniform in the City of Light, brogues are frequently worn. They’re chic, versatile and comfortable, and much like other classic-shaped accessories (the Cambridge satchel, for example), this countryside shoe can be reinvented in neon and metallic to immediately update a look. Also, during a summer when it rains often, and sandals aren’t always an option, brogues are a great way to tackle the unpredictable weather of Paris.

The most classic brogues for 2013 come in brown leather: there were numerous women wearing these simple and versatile brogues with their denim jeans. I, though, was attracted by the more interesting materials and colors. I loved the cream, dipped-in-lavender brogues, very romantic and paired with Missoni trousers. Brogues in fabric also caught my eye, and I really enjoyed the use of plimsoll, a material used for sports shoes, for such a classic shoe shape.

I saw metallics and neons mainly at night, and there was a charming pair of light tan brogues that belonged to an owner of a bike.

Take a leaf from the stylebook of Paris fashion and invest in this staple—what kind of brogues will you get?
