A Trip to Oxford

I’ve never owned a pair of Oxford shoes before. My taste runs more toward ballet flats. However, as winter continues to infringe upon my toes, making them so frigid, I’ve been considering some alternatives. Oxfords require some careful styling to not look too butch, too anachronistic, or too hipster.

In my opinion, you should keep some volume on the bottom–wide-legged trousers, a-line to full skirts. Pencil skirts or skinny jeans might make your feet look ginormous, which is never a flattering look. Also, I love some color and some pattern to my Oxfords. Keep it fun and happy!
