I love when the air is crisp and the leaves start to change colors. It’s time for scarves, jackets, cozy sweaters and best of all… boots!
However, sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t get the memo and every now and then fall feels a little more like spring, offering even the most seasoned of stylists a wardrobe conundrum.
So most of us end up dressing for spring, or fall … or some strange hybrid, which usually involves open toe shoes and a leather jacket or boots and a sleeveless top. However, as long as you have the right footwear you can rule the world! Or at least rock this kinda-sorta autumn in-between weather. Might I recommend…the flat.
As the weather starts to get warmer, the perfect transition shoe is a pair of Oxfords. Comfortable and easy to wear, this goes for both gentlemen and ladies!
Oxfords originated in Scotland and Ireland and were frequently worn by university students. The shoe’s popularity has persisted, making it’s way into the boardroom, paired with fur jackets for women, and even onto the catwalk. You will find Oxfords with endless combinations of details, such as toe caps which can feature brogueing (perforations in the leather), and wingtips (a ‘W’ shaped toe cap that looks like a bird in flight). There are with many styles available, from the traditional to the outrageous.
