beatrix-ong-brogues.jpgOne of the biggest, and perhaps the most un-commented upon footwear trends of recent times has been the move towards transparent uppers, allowing socks and hosiery to play a much bigger role. Mesh and grid-style shoes allow you to have a lot of fun with colour contrasting, and I'd love to see these flat brogues from Beatrix Ong worn over some electric blue or cherry-red socks.

If you've embraced the flat-soled boyfriend shoe look, I think this style is a brilliantly inventive way to wear it with a bit more interest than the styles you'll find on the high street. The stripes give it a pleasingly decorative look, and we're loving the wooden soles. The 'Bentham' brogue is also available in a white mesh upper.
