If you've ever fancied yourself as a toe-tapping Fred Astaire doing Puttin' on the Ritz then you should probably check out these Farley Jazz Shoes from Victor & Rolf.
Crafted in Italy, the shoes have a classic black and white brogue look, but a lighter leather sole and cotton mesh upper perfect for warmer weather. A great summer shoe for adding a masculine retro edge to floaty skirts and floral prints – and breaking into a spot of fancy footwork if the mood strikes.
The shoes cost £335 and you can buy them from Selfridges.
Brogues as womenswear have been on our high street for a few seasons now, and as we move into Autumn/Winter 2010's new lines the style is becoming more varied. These Ivory Lace-Up Brogues from Dorothy Perkins provide a classic and well-styled pair ideal for the transition from Summer.
The rich cream shade of the faux leather provides an instantly retro look, perfect for sixties and seventies styles. For those decades which dared to take menswear on board in women's wardrobes, this pair is both traditional and feminine thanks to the punched hole designs combined with sleek curves.
They're now available from Dorothy Perkins for £25.
