Top Five: Brogue-detailed Courts
Perfect with tweedy Autumn/Winter clothes and thick tights, brogue-detailed courts add interest to heels this season. It's a popular style for mary janes, but you can also find strapless courts in a brogue style from chunky heels to stiletto.
I love these loafer-styled brogue courts from DSquared2. The colour combination is called 'cognac' and is really autumnal, and the narrow stiletto heel provides a balance to the brogue and loafer details which we usually see on a heavier shoe. They're available from Zappos Couture at a pricey $663.95.
Moving to the High St for the next two, starting with this cute pale tan mary jane from Principles. It's a good choice if you're looking for a departure from the traditional A/W dark shoes to wear with your lighter colours and costs £55.
Next up is 'Cody', an almond-toe court from Faith. The buckle detail is very sweet and understated and the chunky heel should counteract the height for those of us who struggle with slender heels. It's available in black and dark brown and is on sale for £40, down from £65.
One of the things I really like about these shoes is that the purple suede can be seen through the perforations in the chocolate brown brogue overlay - very cute. The shoe is from Philosophy di A. F., costs £108 and is just right for a purple shoe fiend (I know there are quite a few of you out there!) with size three feet, as that's the only size left at YOOX.
A more traditional-style brogue now, this high-heeled shoe from L'Autre Chose has both lace-up detailing and and outsized sole. It's available in 'mud' dark brown leather and is £77.
