This Kork-Ease oxford is perfect for the girl who lives in her denim but what’s to look contemporary. Pairing this menswear inspired shoe with a boyfriend jean (under $50!!) And a feminine plaid blouse is a great way to look classic but easy breezy stylish. I’m always up for taking a look one step further and you KNOW I love a hat! Especially a hat named after Clint Eastwood, it always adds that element of style that sets you apart. I always wear a watch so you’ll find that I coordiate with different watches as well and I love the classic but not boring style of this Nixon wrap watch.
The Modern Minimalist
Modern minimalism is all about keeping the silhouettes simple but your accessories anything but boring which these Franco Sarto oxfords are anything but boring! Here I paired them with a simple black Rag and Bone shift dress and a fabulous black leather jacket. I accessorized with fabulous yet understated accessories: A pair of silver spiked earrings from Eddie Borgo. It’s tough girl meets minimalist.
Sometimes a girl just wants to dress like a girl, even in a menswear inspired shoe like the Sole Society oxford dang it! So first the oxford has a great metallic shine to it that’s not too flashy but sends a great message of style know-how. Pairing it with a girly dress, denim jacket and yes an adorable, yet flattering hat can give the perfect balance between girly, glam and trend setting.
I, myself am I very active person, I hit the gym, play with my kids in the park and truthfully my job is really physical so I understand the need for sporty style. But this doesn’t mean you have to look like you came straight from the gym-literally. These Ecco Fara lace ups are obviously a hybrid between a sneaker and an oxford and all kinds of style in between. I have a dress similar to this BP tie front dress and I LOVE wearing it with sneakers to sport it up. Bomber jackets are so on trend but everyone will be wearing the army green, why not choose a floral bomber jacket to soften your sporty style!
