Style Obseession: Oxford Shoes

News flash: Carrie Bradshaw lied to us. There's no way that the average New York City girl can strut around the city in priceless Manolos and Jimmy Choos. At least, not without breaking her ankle, and crying over her lost footwear. Truth is, NYC is not the city to sport the cute high-heels — unless, of course, you plan to spend the night paying cab fares, or hiring private cars.

Instead, we turn to cute flats. And no flat shoes provide more comfort, support, and style than the classic oxford. These men's style-inspired shoes are stable, and add a sprinkling of spunk to any look. Since its creation, oxfords have underwent many makeovers: From cut-outs to crazy colors, and even outrageous patterns. Here are six pairs that I especially love:


Oxford Shoes

Free People oxford

Dolce vita shoes

Paul Smith oxford

Loeffler Randall flat shoes

Lanvin flat shoes

No style obsession is complete without inspiration. Here are some celeb and styling muses I turn to when I'm rocking my oxfords.

It's all or nothing for Kristen Stewart, who finishes her menswear-inspired suit with a pair of
classic black oxfords.

Alexa Chung looks Parisian chic with her bright red oxfords and cigarette pants.

Taylor Swift goes for a downtown vibe with her natural oxfords + bomber jacket combo.
