If you've been loving your flat shoes but are jonesing for something a little different, look no further than your boyfriend's closet.
The "Brogue" menswear shoe is just starting to slip into ladies' sizes and closets. Also known as the "wingtip" dress shoe, brogues for women are cropping up in a variety of colors, styles and materials to suit lots of different ladies. Check out the Melissa Blue Joy Lace Up Brogue ($107.25) in cool blue rubber, the Steve Madden Tuxxedo shoe ($89.95) in four different shades including the traditional "saddle shoe" look, and the Franco Sarto Women's Church shoe ($84.95) with its tailored, laceless front.
Wear them with tights and a skirt for a cool, casual look, pair with rolled-up boyfriend jeans for Sunday farmer's market shopping, or test them out with your other closet staples to make a look all your own.
