best oxford shoes outfit ideas

The oxford shoes is the classic type of shoes that are low cut, made of leather, and has the iconic lace up design. It is the type of iconic items that you don’t really have a clear definition of yet you know what it is called exactly when you see it. These days, they are wore almost as a toned-down version of ankle boots. They add a little bit toughness to your outfit yet they don’t look as winter-like as the ankle boots. Now, let me share with you some of my favorite oxford shoes outfit ideas.

In other blog posts, I have mentioned how ankle boots are so versatile that putting them together with your formal outfits will almost always work. You can speak the same of the oxford shoes. For example, this outfit is just a typical formal work outfit with the white shirt, the black blazer and the black dress pants. You can look taller and heavier, in terms of the mood, with the ankle boots and more down to earth wearing the oxford boots. It is also a good idea for those that like the rough, dark feel of leather shoes but that their partners are shorter than them.

So far, I have shared with you quite a few of oxford shoes outfit ideas, it is probably a good time to address a small detail or trick that make those outfits look so great. I will give you a hint. It’s about the socks. Do you see it? The trick is that oxford shoes are usually wore with no-show socks. Don’t get me wrong. They look good with ankle socks too. But they usually look the best with no-show socks because such socks make the legs look longer. Back to this idea, the outfit simply consists of the sweater dress and the oxford shoes. You can see that no socks are shown, and more portion of the legs are shown, making them visually longer.
