Oxford’s aren’t just for the office. I own about 5 in different variations (tank top, linen, boyfriend cut etc.) and I don’t have close to an office job. Oxfords are one of the easier “office” appropriate garments that I think you can incorporate into your daily wear once you’ve left the office. Throw a cropped sweater over a bf style, tuck your fitted oxford into denim cutoffs and throw on a cute pair of sandals, or wear a long dress-like oxford with knee-high boots and a choker; the options are endless. Remember the 2000’s when blazers came back full force as everyday outwear? We don’t need to limit ourselves to our profession in terms of how we dress.
I’ve always been a fan of women messing with men’s wear. My boyfriend’s reaction to these photos were “a little boyish, no”, to which I replied, “that’s the point!” It’s always a mixed bag reaction for who will like a look like this and who won’t, but that’s not the point of fashion, it’ about what you feel comfortable in. Besides wearing sky high heels this is an outfit I feel most comfortable in. And if you’re comfortable you’ll be confident. an outfit doesn’t necessarily need to be obviously “sexy” to feel confident and good about yourself. I explore the topic of “dressing for a man” versus “dressing for other women” with my friend’s all the time. To me this would be dressing for women (and some men) that are more style conscious and appreciate mixing it up and trying new things; even if they don’t work all the time or someone doesn’t understand the reason you would wear oversized, “men’s like” clothing.
**Another pair of shoes I found on mega sale, at Marshall’s this time. But how friggin’ cute are they?! $20!
