Agyness Deyn has popularised the trend (doesn’t she always) with her NYC fashion shoot outside hip East Village clothing store Trash and Vaudeville, during which she sported a cream brocade dress, knee-high socks and silver winkle-pickers. But Alexa Chung was among the first to adopt the look, snapped out and about wearing a cute pair of Russell & Bromley Chester loafers (£110). It’s a little bit late 80s, a little bit preppy and a whole lot fashionable.
TOP TIP: Scout the men’s section of shops for authentic brogues and loafers. You might need to go down a size but you may find the styling is better, plus, they’ll probably be cheaper. And you’ll earn extra style points because no other gals will have them, prompting lots of admiring ‘where did you get those?’ questions.
