One of my favorite trends at the moment are lace-up oxfords, or brogues as some may call them. Fashion mavens like Sienna Miller and Olivia Palermo have made oxfords their go-to shoe to wear around town. I love any alternative to wearing sandals so, if you want the right amount of practicality and old-school charm, then try a classic pair of oxfords with your next outfit. Wear oxfords with a playful floral dress or keep it low-key in a pair of cropped cigarette pants and a loose-fitting cardigan.
Oxfords come in many varieties like, patent leather, animal print, sequins or a floral design. I'm sure you will find a pair that fits your personal style. Check out designs from Sam Edelman or Steve Madden. Oxfords are the perfect way to combine style and comfort into your wardrobe.
Olivia Palermo's metallic oxfords give off a futuristic feel, while Sienna's keeping it minimal in white.
Loafers are making a big statement in the world of fashion. It is only fair that the menswear-inspired trend reflects our shoe styles, right? This look isn't for the 9 to 5 businessman any longer. Give your feet a break from sky-high heels and get yourself a pair of boyish loafers. You can wear these with knee-high socks and a high-waisted skirt or go casual with rolled up ankle trousers and a feminine blouse. Loafers have twice the charm than regular shoes so, if you aren't afraid to go outside the box, try these two shoe trends the next time you want a second look.
