f-troupe-wedges.jpgBad news for those of you who hate 'fuddy duddy' styling: it really is hip to be square this season, and if you haven't got a bit of broguing or at least some shades of camel somewhere in your outfit by October, you're seriously behind the times. Retirement-home chic is where it's at, and you might as well dye your hair grey while you're at it.

These shoes tick all the right granny boxes, but have the notable addition of a wedge, which is how we know they're being ironic. Pretentious as that may be, we rather like the over-all look, and can imagine teaming this with a floaty skirt for full effect, then pulling them on under jeans on a less dressed-up day. What more could you want?
