You said:  Yes to Brogues, with a 63-37 split in votes.

Style tip? Brogues (aka Wingtip Shoes) have been making a statement on both sides of the Atlantic.  They feature punched patterns (aka brogueing) along the seams and outer layers of the shoe - and are traditionally a menswear shoe.  Though brogues are now made for both women and men, they still retain their classic masculinity - and as such are a perfect counterpoint to feminine outfits.  We love the juxtaposition of a menswear-inspired brogue against a flirty, feminine summer dress.  Just remember to skip the socks.

Next question: Cats eye sunglasses feel very retro - yet au courant.  And they certainly make a statement. But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear cats eye sunglasses?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I say no, especially the way people are wearing them with skirts or shorts. It looks terribly frumpy.

    Not for me, thanks. If I’m wearing a flirty, feminine summer dress, then I’ll be wearing flirty, feminine summer sandals.
