How to Wear Oxford Shoes

Oxford shoes are back again for fall 2010. They are versatile and they seem to be the comfortable alternative for urban look shoes. Therefore, if you are not so much into the high-heeled shoes, Oxfords are certainly a great, effortless option. Even though it might look rather difficult to match and wear, Oxford shoes work great with almost anything and everything, and they flatter everyone regardless the silhouette as long as you know how to pair them.

The sweet escape in matters of shoe trends is elegantly, yet effortlessly represented by the Oxford shoes. They are flat and after the famous boyfriend jeans, boyfriend blazer, and shirt, they seem to be the next masculine inspired popular trend. They are an excellent choice for an office look, especially when matched with another masculine clothing element, such as a shirt or a blazer. Sophisticated, elegant, and above all, very comfortable. However, there are many questions when it comes on how to wear Oxford shoes. Take a look to some tips and get ready to rock this trend.

As stylish doesn't necessarily mean high heels, matching a pair of Oxfords has so many different options. Very versatile, you can wear them with skirts, pleated cuffed pants, carrot pants, shirts, blazers, cardigans, bobby socks, tights, and accessorize the look with fine belts, the uber popular satchel bag, and feminine hair accessories, such as a beautiful headband. Casual, office, classy, preppy, or elegant are some of the styles you can create by choosing a pair of Oxford shoes.

If you want to play with colors, you can purchase Oxfords in two colors, white and black, or white and green, or ones in strong, bold colors or with different patterns, and team them with a pair of pants for a more masculine look. You can wear white and black Oxfords with a masculine inspired outfit when going at the office. Also, when going to work, Oxfords, carrot pants, and a shirt can be a winning, unique combination.

For a casual, relaxed look, Oxfords are the perfect choice. Easy to match and very comfortable, they can be successfully worn for a day at the office or for a relaxing shopping spree. Teamed with a pair of skinny jeans or the already famous rolled-up boyfriend jeans, a t-shirt or a tunic, and a loose cardigan, you are ready to go in no time and you'll certainly turn heads. If you what you want is a more feminine look, match your Oxfords with a ruffled short dress, or a short skirt and a tank top, and a blazer. Also, imagine a pair of Oxford shoes, ankle socks, a simple, short dress or denim shorts, and a masculine shirt.

As we have already mentioned, despite their versatility, Oxford shoes also have a few fashion restrictions as if they are not properly matched they can look totally unflattering. Therefore, try to avoid wearing them with flare pants and jeans, leggings, or a baby-doll dress. The best choice is a pair of slim or slightly loose jeans with the hem folded up and a cardigan or sweater. And keep in mind that Oxfords should be worn with bare ankles.
