Brogues are no stranger to men. Recently, we’ve been lacing them up with a flash of ankle (spending five minutes on The Sartorialist blog verifies this). Often referred to as wing-tips in the States, they’re a staple in every well dressed man’s closet. Ironically, they're also charming on women. It loomed, in all likelihood, as an outgrowth of mere happenstance while skimming their little brothers' closets for oxfords, blazers and ties.

I like women in men’s clothing. It’s the girl-next-door fascination. Save the laces for added sprezzatura and you’re guaranteed a glowing compliment from me. So naturally this brings me to ask you ladies, how will you work these into your existing looks?
