Flat oxfords are a popular shoe choice for fall and winter, but they can easily be worn year-round. All it takes is the right styling.
Black and brown oxfords have become ubiquitous, leaving white oxfords a little underappreciated. But white oxfords can be a versatile addition to anyone’s spring wardrobe. While wearing vivid colors this season, wearing an oxford devoid of any color at all is a terrific way to anchor your look.
Our featured bloggers show you how it’s done.
1. Floral Print and Bright Mini

Floral print tops and flowy miniskirts are not only spring staples, they’re an instant match. This look is filled with color. The stark white of the shoes allows the separate pieces to pop individually, and they also keep the outfit from appearing too busy.
2. Casual Chic

Oxfords are great for dressing down. Match white oxfords with a basic tank worn atop a belted skirt, and you’ve got a strong foundation for a spring-appropriate casual look. Toss on a denim shirt for an effortlessly chic ensemble.
3. Vintage Dress and Light Jacket
