Well, I am officially obsessed wearing headbands and flat oxfords. They make every casual outfit look so much cuter, and I think is a great look to take me back to university.
I wore this outfit for a day at the Art Gallery of Ontario. With a day filled with lots of walking, I needed to wear comfy shoes, and chose my Candela Tokyo Oxford flats. I also wore my new American Apparel Shiny Headband in Metallic Silver - what do you think?
I am wearing:
French Connection Skirt
A.V. Max Cuff
After receiving an e-mail from a reader, here are some of my favorite oxford flats and a variety of styles and outfit options. I think they look best with simple outfits, since since you want the shoe to be the statement.
Sienna Miller has been wearing oxford flats all over the world and really made this trend her own. I love her simple and easy approach, that is feminine, delicate and casual.
SIMPLE OXFORD SHOES:
For some added insight, here are a few rules that one should keep in mind when wearing them, courtesy of some of Vogue’s flats aficionados: ( style.com)
♥ “Putting flat lace-ups with a wide-leg trouser or jean is a very dated way to wear them,” says Jane Herman, Fashion Writer. “Instead, try a cropped pant.”
♥ “This should not be a Wall Street look,” states Filipa Fino, Senior Accessories Editor. “Let the men wear them with suits. Women should wear them with feminine pieces.”
♥ “Don’t match the colors of your shoe to your outfit,” suggests Izzie Burch, Fashion Assistant. “These are playful—do the unexpected.”
♥ “Avoid socks!” says Jill Demling, Entertainment Editor. “That’s my only rule!”
