Although it might not feel like fall yet (it’s supposed to be in the high 70’s today here in New Jersey), I’ve started to slowly phase out my sandals and sundresses for pants and flats. While I have the standard flats, ankle boots and riding boots for the season, what I don’t own is a pair of oxfords.
Here’s a confession: I used to think they were too manly to wear. But the more I look at them, the more I’m drawn to them. They seem like a comfortable and structured alternative to wearing flats (which keep my feet cold and give me terrible blisters) and work well with dark or colored jeans. And not only do they come in neutrals that would work with any outfit, but they have fun colored ones as well!
While I can’t afford to splurge on these pretty Cole Haans, I found so many more affordable options at Target and DSW. Do you own any oxfords? Which brand is your favorite?
I got one last year from Cole Haan, they had an amazing sale and when you sign up for their email they do send coupons sometimes. Mine is mostly black with suede and metallic details. I’ll check the Target ones for sure.
I used to feel the same about oxfords, but they’re growing on me!
I love oxfords! Mine are from the Gap and were very reasonably priced. Cute choices!
I will check out the Gap!
I still love this trend and want a pair for fall. They’re perfect with crop pants and a light sweater.
I’ve been on the hunt for a pair, and so far my favorite appear kind of like a mix between #4 and #5. They have a flatter sole but a ribbon-like lace. Of course I like the bit of feminine touch!
I’ll admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of oxfords, but they’re growing on me. I do agree they sometimes look a bit masculine, but I think if worn right, they can be cute!
i’ve never worn oxfords before – they don’t feel very me. but i’ve seen nicole richie wearing a super cute pair lately and she looks adorable, so maybe i should try them out!
loveee Nicole. Sigh.
I don’t have any either, but they’re starting to grow on me. I doubt that I’ll buy any this year, but I think they’re cute! I like pairs 2 and 3 🙂
I LOVE oxfords! I have gray and tan but would love a black/white pair or colorful pair! They are cute, comfy and perfect for fall!
I used to feel the same way about oxfords…but I’ve changed my mind too…I kind of love how they are a little more boyish!
I have one pair I got in France a few years ago but I think it’s time to invest in a new pair for Fall!
I cannot for the life of me pull off oxfords. I have no clue how to wear them. They sure are cute though!
These are great for the menswear trend, but I can’t see myself wearing a pair. I think I’m too girly!
Great, now I want oxfords. My wallet hates you, Rachel! Hahah <3
I seriously love all of these but I think the natural suede color (#2) is my fave. Definitely a fun item to have in your closet!
Oooh, I’m quite jealous of your 70-degree NJ weather. We’re going to hit 95 in KC today- oy vey!
Love oxfords! Perfect fall shoe. 🙂
I’m a HUGE oxford freak hahaha!! I have been for years, long before they became so trendy….I’m girly, but love a menswear look too. I wear my oxfords with dresses all the time.
I love oxfords, and for the same reason, I was originally drawn to them because I could wear socks and keep my feet warm! I found a great pair 2 years ago at H&M, which I still wear today.
need #6 in my life!!!
I just love oxfords and need a new pair for fall. I’m loving #2 and #5!!
I love, love, love oxfords. They are so functional AND comfortable. Total win-win!
Such a great roundup!! Love this style, and perfect for fall.
The oxford is such a great fall flat alternative. I have two friends that pull off oxfords AMAZINGLY. I don’t think I like them for me because they remind me of the shoes I had to wear with my school uniform in HS.
haha I could see where that would come from!
I need to get myself a pair of oxfords! I love #5!
I have a pair of brown leather ones from Madewell that I am planning on wearing a ton this fall. Great round-up of shoes!
I’m not a fan of oxfords shoes but I’m planning on buying a pair for this Fall! I’m loving #3 and #6 🙂
i love oxfords!! they do seem manly at first, but my style is super-girly, and when i mix them with my wardrobe, it totally works. plus, they come in so many cute colors now!
I’ve been in love with oxfords since forever. They look great with everything from dresses to jeans.
I’ve had Oxford’s on my list of things to by for a while. I’m casual. I prefer flats over stilettos so I know I’ll be getting a pair.
I have two pair of Oxfords similar to 2 in beige and 7 in Grey. have had them for a couple of years now and love wearing them to work, as they are not only chic but soooooooooo comfy and they are so modern now again.
you should get a pair of them Rachel 🙂
The purple, teal, and peach are amazing!
Okay, so I’m totally with you. I thought they were awful and too manly to wear, but they are growing on me. Every time I see a girl on the street rocking a pair, I keep thinking, hmmm, maybe I should invest in a pair. Looking at all the fab pairs above is definitely making me lean towards scooping a pair up.
Oxfords are growing on me too… those colored ones are so fun!
Such a great style!
I got a pair of oxfords at Target a couple years ago that are unbelievably comfortable and
Target shoes, for the win!
I’m also still quite scared to try on this trend…..although I’m so curious about it & loving numbers 1 and 5!
I’m with you all the way one this one! This hsoe trend is well and truly here in the UK and it really works well. x
I just bought my first pair of oxfords for fall over the weekend! They are suede with pink soles. Cannot wait to pair them up on the blog and in real life! These are some awesome picks.
I’ve always thought they were manly as well… I like the way they look on other people though, for some reason I just think they would look silly on me!
I need a pair. I love the suede ones!!
I have a pale pink pair from shoedazzle.com, wear them with everything, shorts, jeans, dresses, great for walking
Oxfords are so adorable and completely on trend for fall. I love the Cole Haan ones!
IDK why, but I can’t jump on this trend. You picked some of the cuter options though, so I hope you find the perfect pair in your price range!
