Fashion Jobs – Oxfords for the Office


If you’re anything like me, you’ve come to realize that life is too short for uncomfortable footwear. But one thing that both flat and heel loving ladies can agree on is that a good pair of oxfords can do wonders for an outfit in a million different ways. You can keep it classic with a solid brown leather pair, or you can experiment with colours and prints. There are also a ton of different variations in style, ranging from traditional and familiar to more casual and edgy, with many styles taking inspiration from the oxford’s younger cousin, the creeper. My one piece of advice is to steer clear of shiny black patent oxfords, unless the look you’re going for is “groomsman chic”. In any case, the oxford is a great way to transition from summer to fall as it can be worn with a light dress just as well as with the wools and tweeds that none of us even want to think about just yet (we’ll save those thoughts for September.)
