Ah, the oxford shoe. A throwback from one of my favorite eras. When thinking of a pair of oxfords, many picture a traditional boyish version, often in a basic black or brown hue – similar to those worn in the ‘20s. Today, however, the trend is taking a turn from it’s original form and can be worn in various prints, patterns, colors, and textures.
While the oxford shoe has often been viewed as a essential item owned by many men, the trend is no longer limited to the male population. This Fashionista shows us how to make the “male shoe” take on a look that’s far from masculine. She perfectly pairs her nude Steve Madden oxford shoes with her blue pinstriped button up and tweed shorts, creating a classic look that is both fun and fabulously feminine.
Oxfords are a great way to pull together your everyday casual look for spring, and in some of the newer styles seen this season, the design of the basic oxford shoe has even been modified to work for warmer summer weather as well. For example, the unique style of this pair of oxfords is sure to keep you feeling cool and looking chic as summer arrives. Oxfords are also great because they provide a comfortable alternative to your everyday spring sandals, while still allowing your overall look to remain casual and chic. They can be worn with virtually any outfit, and the wide array of oxford shoes seen throughout almost every store this season only adds to the trend’s high level of versatility. Dress them up with a sundress or dress them down with your denim shorts; rock them out with a little bit of leather or incorporate a vibrant version to add a pop of color to your overall look. All of these options are sure to be super chic, super cute, and most importantly – super comfortable.
