If you’re a fan of menswear-inspired apparel, like sharp blazers and minimalist button-downs, then you’re going to need a pair of oxfords in your closet. Already have some? Then you might just need more. These classic brogues are timeless and look just as fabulous in casual settings as they do in elegant ones. Not sure how to incorporate this on-trend shoe into your wardrobe? We’ll give you some ideas.

Menswear-Inspired


For a complete borrowed-from-the-boys look, try donning your lace-ups with chic rolled-up trousers and a loose fitting button-up. Pick from classic, two-tone, floral or even suede oxfords--as long as your outfit is simple you can sport any pattern on your shoes.

Yes, You Can Wear Them with Anything


The best thing about this traditionally masculine shoe is that you really can wear them with just about anything. Easily inject feminine details into your outfit by pairing your oxfords with an ethereal calf-length skirt and crop top. Chilly outside? Finish it off with a leather jacket. And if it’s winter, wear your oxfords with a pair of textured wool tights and a dress for an instant hit.
