How to Style Menswear-Inspired Shoes 2015

This fall, menswear-inspired shoes are the hottest trend in the women’s shoe department. Whether you are picking a pair of shiny oxfords, office-friendly brogues, or aggressive combat boots, boy shoes can elevate any outfit. To prove how versatile menswear-inspired shoes are, I collaborated with two wonderful bloggers, Sandra and Marlene. Together, we showcase a few outfit ideas to wear this fall.

If you have a pair of Dr. Martens-looking boots in your collection, try combining them with a feminine dress. The combination of a lace dress, combat boots, and a leather jacket is a safe way to go. Another idea is to wear your army boots with a leather dress and jacket combo. However, be careful and do not overdo leather in your outfit. Pick pieces that incorporate some feminine details, such as asymmetrical chiffon skirt and lace sleeves.

Look #2: Sleek Oxfords styled by Sandra from Sanforiciare

Your menswear-inspired shoes can become a perfect counterpoint to feminine cropped pants and a blouse. To repeat Sandra’s chic look, go minimal with monochrome skinny trousers or leggings combined with a matching shade chiffon top. As you see, patent leather gives Sandra’s sleek oxfords a girlish update. You can also go for a complete menswear look; in this case, opt in for a tuxedo jacket and a leather doctor’s bag.

Look #3: Chunky Brogues styled by Marlene from Cruise M

Denim and menswear-inspired shoes is a must-try combination this fall. To repeat Marlene’s dashing look, pick a pair of a chunky heel in deep burgundy shade and combine them with a matching shade sweater and a denim dress. Those versatile shoes will also give a new meaning to your favorite party dress that may be too short to wear to the office with heels. Try wearing it with your super-styling brogues and a casual jacket—tons of compliments guaranteed.
