About Oxfords

Oxfords are a classic style of shoe that has come in and out of fashion over the course of centuries. These shoes have been popular for both men and women and are beloved for their pulled-together look as well as their durable, comfortable design. Oxfords are defined by their closed lacing details, and were originally worn purely for function since they are very sturdy. However, modern fashion designers have expanded on the range of oxfords available, and you can now find embellished oxfords that are appropriate for a variety of situations. They add a slightly androgynous touch to any look, and they are just as stunning with a girly dress as they are with a minimalist suit.

Oxfords are a classic style of shoe that has come in and out of fashion over the course of centuries. These shoes have been popular for both men and women and are beloved for their pulled-together look as well as their durable, comfortable design. Oxfords are defined by their closed lacing details, and were originally worn purely for function since they are very sturdy. However, modern fashion designers have expanded on the range of oxfords available, and you can now find embellished oxfords that are appropriate for a variety of situations. They add a slightly androgynous touch to any look, and they are just as stunning with a girly dress as they are with a minimalist suit. 

History 

Oxfords originated in Ireland and Scotland, and eventually made their way over to North America in the 19th century. They were originally referred to as Balmorals, after the Balmoral Castle. The term Oxford comes from Oxford University in England, where the students wore a boot style that was similar to the oxfords available today. They were typically considered to be formal wear in this era. 

Style

Derby

Traditionally, derby shoes differ from classic oxfords in that their lacing is open, while traditional oxfords lace underneath the vamp for a tighter fit. However, in modern fashion, the definition of a derby shoe varies. Many popular derby shoes are quite chunky and have an edgy feel that would look great with a plaid flannel, a leather jacket, and other grungy pieces. 

Wingtip

Wingtip oxfords have a dramatic curve at the tip of the shoe, so that the toes are almost pointing backwards. These shoes are very androgynous and look more formal than oxfords that don't have this toe detailing. Rock them with cropped trousers and a blazer for a modern take on a suit. 

Brogue

Brogue shoes typically have a lower heel than derby shoes, and can be with or without the wingtip toe design. They usually have decorative stitching along the uppers, and have a slightly more feminine look than traditional derby shoes. Brogues can work with a variety of different outfits - you can even style them with a skirt and tights in the fall. 

Platform

Platform oxfords have a higher heel and base platform than traditional oxford shoes. They have a very bold, chunky look and are very sturdy, so they are excellent for long days where you need to feel supported and comfortable - but don't want to compromise on your style. 

Details

Perforated

Perforated oxfords have small holes or cutouts in the leather, which add some dimension and interest to these already-stylish shoes. This is a very modern, popular style right now that looks effortlessly cool. 

Embellished

Embellished oxfords are a great way to make a statement, particularly for a fun night out. These shoes can featured many different embellishments, like buckels, jewels, rings, pearls, and more. 

Studded

Studded oxfords are a tough yet fun addition to any wardrobe. They are very androgynous and can be either subtle or bold, depending on how you style them. An easy everyday option is to wear them with a pair of white skinny jeans to let the shoes stand out. 

Material

Leather

Leather oxfords are an everyday essential that is going to be very durable and last you a long time. They come in a range of different neutral colors and are excellent for everyday wear.

Suede

Suede oxfords are a fun take on this classic shoe. Suede is a naturally summery, bohemian material, but the oxford is a very chunky shoe, so it creates a nice contrast. Look for suede oxfords in fun colors like blue, pink, and even pastels like yellow and green. 

Patent Leather

Patent leather oxfords have a sheen to them that makes them look very professional and formal. They are a dressy, work-appropriate option to wear with trousers and other tailored pieces for semi-formal events. 

Colors

Black

Black oxfords are a classic look that never really goes out of style. They are very versatile and look very professional, but can also be styled in an edgy way for a night out. 

Light Grey (Silver)

Light grey or silver oxfords have been a fun trend over the past few years, and they are a great way to make a statement with your footwear. They look excellent with a pair of dark wash denim for a casual day out. 

White

White oxfords look very sharp for a summer event. Despite their lack of color, they are actually a great statement piece that pairs well with bright or pastel colors. 

Brown

Brown oxfords are a very neutral day-to-day essential that are very easy to style. They look beautiful with denim or with jewel toned pieces to really bring out the depth of the color.

You Should Know - Cole Haan

Cole Haan makes cute, summer-ready oxfords in a variety of different colors that will be your go-to everyday shoe for days walking around the city. 

Propet

Propet's chunky shoes strike a great balance between comfort and style. They are very versatile and can be worn with virtually anything. 

Trends

As androgyny has become popular over the last several years, so have oxford shoes, and we've seen many designers putting out fun, modern takes on this classic option. Chunky platform oxfords have been very popular - they're like the grown-up version of high-top sneakers. We've also seen lots of contrasting outfits - for example, pairing oxfords with a flowy, girly dress for an interesting juxtaposition. 

Pop Culture

Bloggers and celebs aren't afraid to pair their oxfords with anything - which makes sense, given their comfort and versatility. We've seen plenty of celebs wear them out and about with simple outfits like jeans, but we've also seen some bolder looks that you can use for inspiration for your next big social event. For example, Cara Delevigne has rocked her oxfords with a trench coat and cocktail dress, and you can easily wear these shoes in a formal setting as well. 

Oxfords have gone in and out of style many times over the last several seasons, and it's fair to say that now they're part of the fashion lexicon. In the future, we can expect to see these shoes transform from something you'd wear casually or to work to something you'd wear more formally, as designers continue to add embellishments and other detailing to make the shoes more high-end.
