The essential Oxford shoe. This shoe is a fashion magic cluster of intellect, charm, chic, feminine and masculine rolled into one. The Oxford shoe originated in Ireland and Scotland and made it’s way into men’s wardrobes here in the US, and only recently have become a typical part of the female wardrobe.
Originally, women’s Oxfords were not very comfortable but can now be found to fit most any foot.
Oxfords give outfits an instant classy charm, and are perfect for geek-chic as well as masculine-chic. The women’s Oxford is the perfect way to transition from summer’s wardrobe to the fall wardrobe, and gives outfits a satisfying pulled together feel. Oxfords can be very expensive when made very well with leather, but can also still be perfectly comfortable and nicely made with plastic or rubber soles. By wearing black tights with black oxford shoes, you can make your gams look longer and slimmer.
The style magic lies in the simple science of low color contrast. And more importantly, you can stay warm while waiting for spring to arrive. Just make sure that you avoid looking like a sad funeral no one bothered to visit by sporting a colorful accessory. Scarves or a vibrant colorful handbag will complement your winter oxfords nicely.
