Borrowing from the Boys

Why not take some fashion cues from the boys? Mixing in a few “borrowed” pieces from the guys into your wardrobe here and there is a great way to add in an unexpected pop of style. Who doesn’t love a good tailored trouser and tuxedo jacket?

The latest trend borrowed from the boys is oxford shoes, the chicest alternative to heels. The lower-heel profile makes these shoes comfortable without losing an ounce of cool.

Whether the silhouette is classic (think brogue detailing and a patent finish) or garners fashion-forward accents like metallic shine, exotic texture, leather cutouts, or neon hues, there’s certainly a more dynamic way to interpret the flat oxford look. Luckily, brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Stuart Weitzman, and even Zara have all designed their own versions to appeal to a handful of style personalities.

And as for execution? Remember that oxfords work for both day and night— and as long as you show a little ankle (think cropped boyfriend jeans or a leather mini), you’re good to go.
