Ten Things Tuesday: High Heeled Oxfords!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, it’s probably no huge secret that I adore menswear styling for women. A beautiful tailored blazer with a flash of sparkle underneath; loose, slouchy trousers with a fitted tee and lots of chunky statement jewelry piled on; a crisp button-down tucked neatly into belted skinnies… I love it. I can’t get enough. And yes, this fall’s trends have been the DEATH of me.

One style that I’m swooning over but haven’t indulged in yet is the whole high heeled oxford thing. Personally, I think these little babies look fantastic with tights and a sweater dress, or skinny cords and a little belted jacket. They’re the perfect balance of everything I love about menswear influence: substantial, elegant, with dashes of prim and proper preppy. Here are ten pairs that I want need:


Cole Haan, Air Violet, $298

Cynthia Vincent, Kole, $325

Børn, Westerly, $110

Kate Spade, Karmela, $340

BCBG, Tosca, $113

ModCloth, Bibliophile, $70

Steve Madden, Vulture, $60

J.Crew, Langford Two Tone Oxford Heels, $275

J.Crew, Langford Wool High Heeled Oxfords, $295

J.Crew, Crosby Lace-up Peep Toes, $250

(J.Crew clearly wins)

What do you think of high heeled oxfords? A trend you can get behind? Passing fad? Or timeless and necessary for any girl who loves menswear/tailored pieces? Those Steve Madden’s are only $60 on Overstock….hmmm…

  1. OMG I love love LOVE the black & white Oxfords from J.Crew. If I could just justify spending $300 on them….

    Well, anyway, I got a pair that are flats from Kohls that were much more reasonably priced. They’re cute. But siiiiiiighhh….

  2. I bought the Borns in black last winter and wore them everywhere. Now I need to get some velvet ribbon and try your idea of replacing the laces.

    Love the herringbone pair.
