Pairing it off

On a lazy day, you can wear Oxfords with flats, shorts, shirts, or jeans. Fold the sleeves up, tuck the shirt in or pull it out, and let your hair down.

For work, tuck it in your slacks or skirt for a more polished look. It goes well with either heels or flats, so it’s pretty safe to say that you’ve picked the right top for any bottom.

Either way, get them in solid colors with as little insignia as possible. Stripes or other patterns take the eyes away from what is simple, elegant, and understated.

So, how do you wear your Oxfords?
