Oxfords never totally left the footwear circuit for tons of consumers, but they're officially back on the fashion set's radar. Flat footwear in general has made huge strides in the past few seasons--just check out Marchesa's stunning footwear and you'll see what I mean. Even on the Spring 2016 runways, flats were everywhere, including some versions of oxfords from brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
Tons oxfords have been popping up on retailers New Arrival pages for spring, and we've only hit the tip of the oxford-trend iceberg. Many brands are redesigning the classic to feel fresh and innovative, like incorporating flatforms, wedges and heavily embellished details. You'd be surprised how an androgynous, menswear-inspired oxford can make just the right statement in a very Emma Stone sort of way.
While I love, love, love (did I say love?) my heels and boots, I really am a flats girl at heart, and the return of the oxford sounds good to me!
