Lace-ups and Oxfords!!

Menswear is huge right now from all our boyfriend style clothes and now to our feet. Oxfords for chicks are such a hot trend and a versatile one too. Menswear-inspired pieces are hot for spring and summer. Think structured twills and relaxed separates like vests, trench coats, and trouser pants. This is a trend we adore and if you’re looking for a hip addition for fall to enhance your wardrobe, get you some oxfords. As menswear continues to be a dominant trend in womenswear, one of our favorite ways to embrace the guys’ style is with a smart pair of sharp oxford shoes. Yup, the lace-up shoes that scores of young boys were forced to wear to school everyday with their uniform. They’re in style now and can look really cute with the right outfit.

The key to pulling off a pair of oxfords is dressing them up with really feminine clothing. Think a leg-baring mini, a ruffled top, a girly saddle bag and some flashy bangles. This way, you’ll have a hint of the trendy menswear styling without looking overly boyish. Depending on your profession, this casual cool look could work for the office, or you could save it for a daytime first date.
