Oxfords are proper, ladylike, and now my latest obsession. Pull off a sexy secretary look with heels and a pencil skirt, or try the new take on flats. Oxfords are a comfortable way to dress up any look and give off the vibe that you’ve just been running around London and you haven’t been back long enough to change your shoes. Ditch your flip flops and get a pulled together look like Olivia Palermo, Selma Blair, and Sienna Miller. Even jeans and a t shirt look effortlessly chic with a pair of metallic or white oxfords. This year you’ll see them in all shapes, colors, and patterns to fit any style. Wear them with pants, skirts, tights, bare legs, or put your own spin on the look. They look as polished with dress pants as they do with a sundress. When preppy is infused with European cool, the rules don’t apply. My prediction: oxfords are the new classic.
