Style Trend: Oxfords

Although it still feels like winter, spring fashions are coming in hot. What’s at the top of my shopping list? Shoes.

After months dedicated to boots and socks, I can’t wait to bare my feet! Preppy is trendy this season with an overwhelming amount of  loafers, moccasins and oxfords. I’m ready to ditch the Sorrels for a new pair of Cole Haan ‘Alisa’ Oxfords.

The oxford trend is a perfect way to combat the urge to freeze your toes in the name of spring fashion. Wear a flat style as a casual replacement for boots with jeans and daytime dresses, or make it a wedge/flatform variety to wear out on the town or add a little spice to the ensemble.

And don’t be afraid to wear socks with these classic tie-ups! These shoes take inspiration from a school boy’s wardrobe, so go ahead, feminize them and make them as chic as you are! As Brad Goreski, brand stylist at Kate Spade says “loafers are the new ballet flats,” meaning they’re the new go-to shoe for spring.
