With the prevalence of accessible and varied menswear inspired footwear, it’s of little surprise that the “oxford” or “brogue” has gained popularity in non-formal environments. Since many associate this shoe with school uniforms, itchy polyester and ill-fitting suits, it may be troublesome to find a way to incorporate lace-ups into a casual look. But wearing these bomb ass shoes is a breeze. I’m gonna show you how!
Tilda does a metallic brogue with more metallics, naturally. Throw on an opulent scarf and a suave blazer, and you are ready for that life.
Sweet and slightly schoolgirl, knee socks and a flippy A-line skirt are an easy update to make oxfords a cutesy cool.
Casual cropped trousers with a boyish varsity say “I threw this on, and I look damn fine”. This is my ideal weekend attire!
Straight up: I could find an excuse to wear all white with almost anything. Marigold and cream looks fashion forward with boyish footwear.
Crop, overalls and easy-going saddle style oxfords means you’ll be read for any rambunctious adventures that come your way.
Playful and sharp, a mini skirt and blazer combination looks lovely topped off with a sweet hat and classic black oxfords.
Suiting is a natural choice to pair with a classic oxford, but a bold print feels fun & fancy free!
Whether you’re looking to spend $30 or $300, there’s a slick oxford out there for you. Here are 9 of my current favourites!
There are a million and one outfit iterations that makes oxfords look sickening; my personal favourite pair are a silver set from Zara. How do you do your derbys?
