a touch of retrovintage shoes for every woman : OXFORD SHOES

Oxford shoes, which first appeared in the 1900′s as men’s shoes, are tricky to wear.  i recieved ab email from my blog reader
'im a great fan of oxfords and brogues but i dont know how to pull them. help me shitawa'
Well,The shoes look masculine so the effort lies in making sure you don’t look like a guy after putting it on.
This rainy season has started with challenges not least of them choosing the right pair of shoes.Im more of strappy shoes person and when it starts raining that's when i notice how i dont have closed shoe
Sky-high confections will most likely garner camera snaps, but so will flats — when done right.
 comfy brown oxfords with olive green cords, a posh trench coat, and a vintage leather backpack for a simultaneously functional and refined vibe. just what i d like to wear tomorrow. considering all the cats and dogs that has been happening * no pun intended*
how to wear them:

#1: Casual Chic – Wear your Oxfords with skinny jeans that fall above the ankle, top it with  a loose T-shirt and a Cardigan, then you’re all set!
#2: Sexy Casual – look sexy casual by pairing your Oxfords with some slightly loose jeans, fold up the hem to show your ankles, then top it with a tight V-neck sweater.
#3: Preppy casual – look preppy casual by pairing your Oxfords with a loose blouse tucked under a pair of pleated cuffed trousers that show off your ankles.
#4: Evening Casual – If it’s a casual night out, pair your Oxfords with a dark oversized cashmere sweater and skinny pants that fall just above your ankles.
#5: Party chic – The easiest look to pull off. Wear your heeled oxfords with a dark tunic or short dress, put on some black tights, and go party the night away! You can top it with a cropped jacket or blazer in case you’re feeling a little cold.
#6 Cruise Casual – My favorite of all the looks. Pair your white or light flat Oxfords with a short full skirt and a tank top. Accessorize with some bright neck pieces and don’t forget your arm candy.
Do remember though, that choosing the right shoe style is also important in order to achieve the looks. It’s best to purchase the narrow type with thin soles (such as the pair on Sienna) as it looks more feminine.  Keep it in one color and try to avoid the bulky styles.
i hope i helped you out nina.
