Spectacular Spectators. You don’t have to look like your 3rd grade teacher or a librarian wearing these. As long as you don’t match them with frumpy clothes (and really, you don’t wear those right?).
Best worn with pretty much everything except evening apparel, try them with a pantsuit or a tweed dress. The selection right now is lacking, but trust us…as it gets closer to fall, you will them everywhere and in more colors and textures than just black leather.
Word of caution: please, avoid the flat versions which are just too manly. Your Oxfords should have at least a 2 inch heel so you show some calf definition. Oh, and the toe-less ones? We don’t care for them. Skip ’em.
