Meet me in Oxford

Oxford shoes is a term which is associated with British heritage, students in uniform and classy business men. Over the past few years these traditional favourites have evolved into a huge trend. Plenty of fashion’s biggest influencers have traded in their heels for this fashionable footwear staple.

Some may say that it takes a certain kind of woman to pull off Oxford shoes, but the truth is that this trend can work for anyone – it’s all about how they’re styled. The style originated from male inspired roots, yet our European brands prove that this trend is taking on a very feminine persona. Pair your oxfords or loafers with a long-draped skirt for an edgy look, go for a casual feel with a pair of jeans or layer this look with a long trench coat and slim cut trousers – the possibilities are endless. No matter which way you choose to wear Oxford shoes, this season we have ensured that our designer footwear brands provide a look that fits in with your style.

This masculine styling influence is incredibly comfortable with low and mid-height heels to suit every woman’s busy lifestyle. Oxfords give outfits an instant classy charm, and are perfectly well-balanced to create that edgy and preppy look while still maintaining a feminine flair. They also provide the perfect way to transition from summer looks through to your autumn/ winter wardrobe.

This season, we have styles that epitomise the Oxford trend-
