One of the biggest 2016 Spring Shoe Trends to happen this season for casual dressing is oxfords.  Gone are the days when this style was only for the gentleman – oxfords came out in full force on several prominent women’s ready-to-wear runways and are infiltrating many of the collections we’re now seeing in stores.

Due to it’s menswear-inspired roots, many ladies we work with hesitate to try this style. It’s a shame however since a cute oxford shoe can be paired with almost anything and provides a lot of versatility that many other footwear options cannot. There is something about the heel/lace/shape combo that allows it to be casual yet stylized at the same time.

Tips on styling oxford shoes for spring:

Stay true to it’s roots and drive the shoe home with androgynous attire.

Switch things up by pairing them with a flirty and feminine skirt or dress.

Add fun elements like frilly socks or patterned tights.

Switch out your sneakers for oxfords to make a casual jeans and tee outfit more exciting.

Be bold and opt for this shoe over heels for an evening look. Think trousers and blouse combo.

Wear them to the office in place of your every day work shoe.
