What: A classic oxford rendered in nude patent leather.
Why: Possibly our all-time favorite borrowed-from-the-boys staple, oxfords strike a perfect balance between comfort and cool. Here, the shiny patent leather adds eye-catching glint, while a pale nude hue offers a fresh alternative to everyday black flats.
How: Given the neutral color, these patent kicks can pair with just about anything in your wardrobe. For winter, we’d pair these up with a slouchy grey trouser sock, cuffed jeans and a textured mohair pullover. Come spring, they can add practicality to an easy-breezy dress and a cross-body satchel for a day in the office or a day in the park.
