Looks I Love: Oxfords and Ankle Jeans

If you’ve stepped out in smoking slippers, oxfords are the next frontier in flats. I’m drawn to the sleek silhouettes with ribbon laces and patterned cut-outs – and staying far away from those with clunky soles and close similarity to saddles.

Ankle jeans ensure the shoes’ distinguishing details aren’t concealed. The boyish casualness of relaxed, rolled-cuff jeans (and cut-offs in the summer) mix well with the oxfords’ girlish refinement.

Oxfords’ origins may be masculine, but the evolutions here are updated and feminine. It would be easy (and expected) to slip on a skirt with these flats for dainty-on-dainty parity. But adding them to rugged, distressed denim shows leader-of-the-pack creativity and confidence in dressing out of the box.
