Menswear-inspired oxfords are here to stay, but pairing them with long or wide-leg pants makes you look like you belong in a boardroom. Instead, pair them with pretty, feminine summer dresses and skirts like trendsetters Jessica Biel and Sienna Miller. You will look chic – not like a stuffy businessman or British schoolboy.
Get Jessica’s Look:
Start with a cool cut-out pair, like Jessica Biel’s Stuart Weitzman Manoman oxfords ($335). They are definitely not your father’s oxfords.
Pair with a feminine skirt like Gap’s Pleated Chambray skirt ($49.50) to create an easy weekend look.
Accessories with this Fossil Embossed Leather Crossbody bag ($84.90, down from $128) – it’s one of Biel’s favorite styles, and will carry you over into Fall.
To top of the whole look, throw on a straw fedora like Banded Multi-Colored Straw fedora ($12.50)
Get Sienna’s Look:
Try pairing a pretty, feminine pink romper like Sienna’s – we like Kensie Drawstring Camisole romper ($58) – with a black patent Oxford style.
We love these American Apparel Hannah shoes ($97); mixing girly with boyfriend-inspired pieces is huge this season.
