Oxford Shoes: New Spring Trend

Fashion & Style: One of spring's must-haves is the updated version of the classic oxford. Chic — in that girly masculine way — they add instant polish to any look. One of my favorite ways to wear them is with boyfriend jeans, a loose fitted tank, and a ton of necklaces. You can also pair them with one of spring's bold floral print dresses. The key to wearing these British inspired kicks is to keep the rest of the outfit feminine and simple to avoid looking like a bad version of a drag Charlie Chaplin.

White is the best color to go with this spring; since they are heavy shoes, wearing them in white makes them season appropriate. The always fashion forward Sienna Miller has been rocking oxfords for the last few months and designers have taken notice. Max Studio's snake print Bacalls and House of Harlow's perforated Tilly oxfords are divine and a great modern twist on this old classic. For more inspiration, there's a beautiful spread in April's Vogue, pairing ethereal dresses with oxfords.
