I’m just going to put it out there: Oxfords are underrated. Despite being one of the most chic options available when it comes to women’s footwear, Oxfords are forever being pushed to the background in favour of high heels and wedges. I mean, come on. As much as I love heels, I love my Oxfords even more. But the glam factor of a pair of sexy red heels seems to, time and again, override the charm of a beautiful pair of brown oxfords.
If you do not own Oxfords and have never really considered buying a pair, then allow me to convince you otherwise. Here are five reasons why you should go ahead and invest in some Oxfords.
They Are Versatile
Wear them with dresses, shorts, skirts or jeans. Oxfords are versatile and once you own a pair you’ll realise that they go along with most of the clothes in your wardrobe. Still not sure about it? Check out these pictures to see how truly versatile they are.
They Are Oh-So-Comfortable
Comfortable yet stylish footwear is every woman’s dream and Oxfords make that dream come true. Why totter around on heels and later have to deal with aching feet when you can put on a pair of Oxfords and be comfortable all day long?
They Are Timeless
Oxford shoes are not a fad. They are definitely here to stay, unlike some of the other footwear trends we’ve seen come and go in the past (remember platform heels?). And since they are timeless, you don’t have to think twice about investing in a nice pair. They will last for a very long time and are sure to become your go-to shoes as time goes by and you fall more and more in love with them.
They Instantly Dress Up Your Look
Swap your sneakers with a pair of Oxfords to take your outfit from casual to casual-chic in an instant. Oxfords add that little bit of quirkiness to your otherwise drab outfit. They can totally dress up your entire look.
Celebrities Love ‘Em
Now, I am not saying that you should love Oxfords just because Hollywood celebrities seem to love them. But when someone who can wear Christian Louboutin heels day in and day out seem to love a pair of humble Oxfords just as much then they are onto something, right? Check out some of the trendy looks that our celebrities have been spotted in, featuring—you guessed it—Oxfords.
And there you have it. Five solid reasons why Oxfords should become your feet’s BFF!
