Toe tappers and nu-wavers can't resist retro brogues

Remember Funny Face?  Gene Kelly and Audrey Hepburn’s dance-off remains one of the most charismatic sequences committed to celluloid. Hepburn, in a beatnik-chic black turtleneck and ankle length cigarette pants, drew all eyes to her fancy footwork in a memorable pair of brogues. Dieppa Restrepo’s throwback loafers and lace-ups offer styles meant for silver screen toe tappers. Slick patent finishes and vintage dance studio hues lend these lookers plenty of panache. Starlet ruby, gentleman gray and pressed-powder blush are our waltz-worthy favourites. Give ’em the old pizazz in Hepburn-worthy streamlined togs that let these brogues steal the show.

Dieppa Restrepo leather brogues, $225-$275. for Canadian locations.
