Brogues and Ruffles;how to wear yours.

With Spring (technically) just around the corner, it is most definitely time to consider an upgrade for your wardrobe. As an inherent wearer of the three most adventurous colour groups (black, grey and white), it is high time for change in my ready-to-wear collection, and I am extremely invested in another palatable colour group. Soft pink and blush.

Within the last year, these two complimentary tones have been available in a vast majority of varying fashion items, from coordinating evening wear pieces, to designer handbags, and literally everything in between. Even the previous S/S season of fashion inspired athletic footwear which have sold out in their thousands, released almost exclusively in these romantic tones. The rose/blush/nude/camel colour palette has seen commercial success due to the complimentary warmth of this shade. Everyone looks healthy and ‘put together’ in this colour, and the understated injection of this colour is really beautiful with so many other garments. 

Take a simple (and timeless) white tee and jeans. This look has been favoured and recycled numerous times, and is the basis of a great capsule wardrobe. Once you pair a great camel trench coat with this look, and a blush pink leather handbag, you have a finished outfit that is elegant and ridiculously classic.  And so unexpected, when the norm would call for a black trench, which is so much more subdued. Let us not forget, we are now hurtling towards the Spring/Summer season, and so many of us could learn a thing or two in not purchasing all of our investment pieces in black. Blush is always a good idea.

One of my favourite styles from the current collection from Tint London, is this pair of vibrant and unashamedly elegant Oxford Brogues.


Finished in as little as four complimentary and wearable tones, these would look so stylish, with anything from smart khakis and a classic knit, to Mom fit jeans a statement tee. With versatility, comes well thought out investment, and a really great ‘cost per wear’ ratio. They are made from really amazing quality Italian leather, and with such vibrant colour pigmentation, they make a statement whilst still being so comfortable!

To prove quite how versatile this style is, I have put together four outfits for four different looks/occasions, all encompassing one of the biggest trends for this Spring; ruffles! Whether you are the typical girly girl, or you favour something a little more minimalist, I have found an entire look for you. All items will be linked down below.

And make sure you keep reading, because at the end of the post I have an exciting opportunity for subscribers to my blog!

Look #1- A first date….


Cute, feminine, without being too ‘I’m the one for you!’. Keep styling underdone and minimal here, with straight, tousled hair and barely there makeup. Tuck this pretty, ASOS cold shoulder blouse into the leather skirt, and throw this incredible River Island Aviator jacket over your shoulders. Wear with the Tint London brogues, and you’ll be ready for anything this date throws at you!

Look # 2 Lunch with the girls


When meeting friends, you must always keep the look playful, comfortable, and lust-worthy, as you may find you spend the entire time telling everyone where you got the outfit from! Whether your day involves a picnic in the park, an afternoon tea, or just a quick grab on the go, this look is versatile and stylish!

Look #3 Live Music!


Playful, bright, nineties inspired, and still incorporating the ruffle trend (not once, but twice, in one outfit!) The denim skirt is set to make a huge comeback in the style stakes this Spring/Summer season, and the more throwback, the better! Adding the multi colour brogue, gives this look a more preppy vibe, and paring with this tonal array of pinks and blush is very ‘Clueless’ inspired!

Look #4 Back to the office!


Just because it’s Monday, doesn’t mean your outfit can’t be fabulous! Pair the Tint London Oxford brogues with these delicate (yet still smart and office appropriate) pieces. How stunning is this Marks and Spencer’s floral embossed bag? Wearing this put-together and polished look, your colleagues and peers will know you mean serious business, and the layers and longer sleeved blouse is mindful of the Spring weather that we often experience in the UK.

So, there you have it. Ruffles and Brogues, four ways! This collection of looks goes some way in demonstrating just how versatile and incredibly beautiful these Tint London Oxford Brogues are!
