The Hotel Image Brogues from Clarks in Cotton Leather are one of the key pieces in their Spring Summer 2014 range. They were kind enough to give me a pair to try out which I was really pleased about because they aren’t a pair of shoes that I’d usually buy for myself. I’ve always like brogues, but I’ve never owned a pair and worried that I wouldn’t have anything to wear with them.
Luckily, I have a very stylish friend (Gaby) who absolutely rocks brogues and demonstrated how she wears her white pair beautifully with black tights and a simple black dress. Very monochrome, lots of black and it shows off the shoes. Perfect.
So, I’ve totally taken her style tips on board and here’s my look for the Clarks Hotel Image Brogues. One of the things I like about fashion blogging is that it pushes me out of my comfort zone. I absolutely love these brogues, but wouldn’t have been brave enough to pick them for myself. The cut-out detailing is really lovely.
If cream isn’t your colour of choice for brogues, you can also get them in navy leather or browny-beige. To get my cream cotton leather lovelies, go to http://www.clarks.co.uk/p/20357671 and part with £64.99.
I’m a big fan of Clarks Shoes to be honest, you can really feel the quality of them (the Hotel Image Brogues have full leather linings), they feel tremendously comfy and they fit just perfectly, thanks to their half-sizes (I’m a 4 1/2). One of my favourite pairs of boots is from their Mary Portas range. I love them. I’d really recommend taking a look at their full range at http://www.clarks.co.uk/womens – I’m always keeping an eye out for my next pair of shoes or boots.
