Don’t wait for spring to arrive to treat yourself to one of the season’s most trending new styles: a pair of tailored Oxford shoes. This look has taken the fashion world by storm, and now it’s finally stepped into 417-land boutiques.
We spotted a pair of stylish Cole Haan Oxfords ($198) at Harem & Company (4339 S. National Ave., Springfield, 417-881-0602, haremboutique.com) while perusing local boutiques to check out the latest fashions. As soon as our eyes locked on those sharp-looking suede kicks with their bright-colored soles, our wish list got a bit longer.
Part of the appeal is the semi-androgynous style. “It’s a feminine take on a menswear style,” says Julie Mace with Harem. Soft pastel colors add a playful look to the polished business-style shoe, and with an array of ways to wear these kicks, we can’t wait to see how 417-land footsies don this colorful look.
Wear them with...
1. Cropped pants and a jacket
2. A fitted top tucked into a flouncy mini-skirt
3. A pair of rolled-up boyfriend jeans and a loose top for a more casual look
