I must say... I'm a sucker for oxford high-heel shoes. The pretty laces, the masculinity mixed in with the femininity. I just love it. I wear my brown ones with a happy floral dress to tone it down, love wearing them with tights or with jeans for a 70's structured look.
The oxford heels are all over the place right now, a love them MUCH MUCH more than I will ever accept the clog. So how about this for an alternative?
I personally enjoy them with heels, they're sturdy and they tend to be comfortable. You can walk for miles in them! I remember my very first pair of high heel oxfords, I was in 9th grade and they were from this Asian store, cost me $10 and I LOVED them. Wore them until they broke.
How to wear them? Technically with nearly everything. I'm serious.
Dress them up!
Wear them to work
