I am a firm believer that a girl can never have enough pairs of shoes in her closet. To me, shoes can make or break an outfit and finding the right pair to wear can be difficult. Boots, wedges, flats, sneakers and sandals–all shoes that are vital to ones outfit. One of my all time favorite pair of shoes that has been popular for many seasons is the classic oxfords. Adding unexpected pops of color, or by making them into wedges or heels, designers have been bringing back these vintage styled shoes and redesigning them in various ways.
On this beautiful day in Des Moines, I ran into this stylish Fashionista who was definitely strutting these pair of heeled oxfords. I couldn’t let her pass without complimenting her on them. I love how these vintage shoes were made modern by the fabric suede and the added heel. The two tone brown in addition adds a unique touch. She paired these ravishing oxfords perfectly with a pair of black leggings, lace tank top and denim button-down shirt. This outfit is plain and simple, which works with the shoes for a stand out piece. She accessorized well by adding a few bracelets and a dark brown leather bag. She then brought to my attention the necklace she was wearing. It was a map of Iowa with Des Moines written on it. I thought this was great how she incorporated where Drake University is located into her outfit.
You can wear oxfords with dresses, skirts and jeans. They basically go with anything. These pair of shoes are comfy and stylish all at the same time. What could be better? If you dare to be different, these oxfords are daring and nonconformist. What is even better is that you can custom design them and add some color blocking making them stand out.
With the holidays coming up, sparkles tend to be more incorporated into outfits. Madewell carries absolutely amazing selections that should definitely be added to your Christmas list–or any pair of oxfords for that matter.
