Great with flats
CROPPED pants are on trend right now: They go great with flat shoes with profile soles such as brogues or monks, reports dpa.
Teamed with a skirt or a dress, they can give a feminine outfit "a cool twist", says Claudia Schulz from the Association of the Shoe and Leather Goods Industry.
Shiny, glossy leather brogues or monks work particularly well – be it brushed, patent leather or dark colours with metallic tones.
"Bordeaux is very in right now," adds Schulz.
A monk shoe is a shoe typically worn by men, but are becoming increasingly popular with women. They don't have laces and are instead fastened with a buckle and strap. Brogues are also typically men's shoes, with decorative perfora
tions and stitching.
Double-monk shoes have two buckles each.
