Womens Oxford Shoes
Love your oversized cardigan and want to take the boyfriend look to the next level? Then introduce your closet to womens oxford shoes! You're sure to adore these menswear-inspired oxford shoes, also known as 'brogues'.
You can't beat classic design that oozes modern edge! They appear a bit 'old school' for most women, but in any romantic and classy trendy fashionista's eyes, they're a superb option to infuse your style with vintage and sophistication.
Oxfords are a chic alternative to loafers and ballet flats. And they are also available in various styles such as ankle booties, flat boots (the lace up type that you're seeing everywhere these days), pumps and even sandals.
How to Select a Pair of Oxford ShoesChoosing the right style is important so that they won't end up dusting in your closet. And again, versatility is a must so think neutrals when shopping for womens oxford shoes.
Examples of versatile colors that work on most occasions and can be worn throughout the seasons are: Black, chocolate and burgundy. They make a polished impression for office work or a dinner date.
For daily wear and casual office settings try navy, shades of grey and olive.
Matte material is also versatile compared to silver and patent womens oxford shoes.
They're still a bit on the borderline to masculine because they're close to resembling real mens shoes so make sure you add an extra effort to sweeten it up with for example a cute top, nice purse, dress or a skirt.
Perfect for a night out or for just dolling up and feeling pretty :) I personally prefer seeing heeled oxfords with a skirt, short or dress, because it looks more fashion-y and stylish. But it's all up to your taste and style!

How to Wear Oxford ShoesThese men's shoes that first appeared in the 1900's (timeless I know!) are tricky to wear. The thing here is that they look masculine and it's up to your efforts to avoid looking like a unisex. That's why putting some extra feminine appeal to your outfit with these shoes are crucial to look chic and fab in them.
Here are 6 chic ways to wear womens oxford shoes without losing your feminine touch:
With Tailored Shorts
Oxford shoes look fabulous with shorts and I think this the best outfit combo for them out there. To avoid looking too boyish, add a feminine blouse. You can also wear them with a simple tee but match it with girly accessories.
With a Skirt
Now this looks chic with a nautical-themed outfit. For a basic but sexy-chic look try them with a full short skirt, camisole, cardigan and a pair of thigh high socks!
A super-effortless way to wear the oxfords is to pair them with jeans, loose tunic tee and a cardigan. Sienna Miller is especially good on this front. The womens oxford shoes add an interesting appeal to a basic, casual outfit.
A preppy-casual look. Make sure to show off your ankles in this outfit and that the pants are slim or tapered (boot and wide leg cuts make you look shorter). Oh, and definitely add a trendy fashion bag and a statement necklace to the mix.
With a Work Dress
Oxfords look fab with a layered office outfit – match a feminine nipped dress with tights and a cardigan. And perhaps, take it up a notch with lace tights.
