Would You Wear... Oxfords?

Publish date:
Oxfords for Fall 2009

It's still July but fashion blogs and magazines are already abuzz about what may be fall's hottest footwear trend: the flat oxford. If you guys remember, high heeled oxfords were HUGE a few seasons ago after Luella so famously sent them down the runway in 2007. In contrast to the chunky-heeled, neutral colored oxfords of '07, this season's oxfords (also called brogues) have flat soles and come in many colors: classic black and white, brights, and metallics.

The oxfords pictured above are (from left) by Opening Ceremony, 3.1 phillip lim, Topshop, and Kaight (via New York Magazine). The three oxfords on the right are from the new Olivia Morris for Grenson collection (via Vogue.co.uk).

Personally, I think oxfords are cute but I'm not sure they fit with my personal style. I think they would work better for those with a more androgynous look. (Think Agyness Deyn and the like.) What do you think?

Would you wear oxfords? Are you excited about this shoe trend or planning to pass? Did you wear the high heeled oxfords a few seasons back? Leave a comment with your thoughts!
