With menswear-inspired looks as a recurring trend in the fashion world, it is not surprising that the oxford shoe has remained a staple choice of footwear. Although these masculine shoes closely resemble a man’s brogue loafer, they are currently favoured by Fashionistas as a trendy alternative to their ballet flats and flip flops. This classic shoe has veered from its traditional boyish form and embraced a range of colours, patterns and textures to make them compatible with just about any outfit.
The oxfords worn by this Fashionista were given the ultimate feminine makeover by adding a slight heel. What is great about the addition of the heel is that they perfectly complement a casual outfit, but by changing up your ensemble, you could also have a trendy nighttime look. This Fashionista perfectly pairs her shoes with a light cream dress and polka-dot cardigan for a cute balance of femininity and masculinity. I also love the addition of her schoolgirl chic knee-high tights. They really pull together the outfit to create a trendy, yet flirty look. The outfit could have been too busy if she had added colour or detail to the outfit, so the minimal jewelry and neutral colour palette keeps the look practical.
If you like the more girlish route, then balance the shoes out with a light summer dress or skirt. Try a pair like these oxfords with a sparkly finish for some added interest and femininity. For a more androgynous look, try a pair like these with cropped boyfriend jeans and a chic blazer. They are the perfect neutral, cognac colour and I love the leopard accents. These shoes from Aldo are also right on trend for the summer, as white accessories are hot for the season. Plus, the pop of neon on the sole makes for a bold contrast to the bright white shoe.
