Androgyny has been a major influence on fashion for quite some time now. Less a trend and more a well-noted way of achieving balance, this coming season sees androgyny blended alongside more feminine pieces. The more casual side of this “boy meets girl” takes its cues from the early nineties with plaids, baseball caps and high tops, whilst it is smartened up with workwear-influenced tailored blazers, cigarette trousers and sharp shoes. Coupled with feminine layers, the look is a dance between classic lines of femininity and staples of masculinity. A great way to channel this is by adding a pair of trendy women’s shoes inspired by menswear.
A very subtle take on masculine cowboy boots, an understated olive pair of boots like these can be dressed up or down. The slight dip at the front makes them very flattering by giving the illusion of lengthening legs. Having a sturdy but slightly tapered heel strikes just the right note between his and hers.
Modeled on Derby-style men’s shoes, these vintage-inspired lace-ups are a perfect mix of no- nonsense black leather with softer rounded toes. This look is all about harmony and a mid-heel is a perfect way to achieve this.
Brogues are a classic style and seem to be here to stay as a women’s essential too. The slim line of this ankle boot style adds balance if you’re worried about them looking too clunky. Mix things up by choosing tan.
Wedge high-tops are massive (and I mean MASSIVE) right now. They are a perfect way to add a boyish edge to a casual outfit. Though you can’t go wrong with simple black, these can be mixed up or spring by choosing a biscuit or olive toned shoe. The hidden wedge adds a sneaky bit of height whilst retaining the tomboy feel.
Have a lovely Day!!!
