oxford blues . . .

embodying the very form of “normcore,” the blue oxford has come to represent a mix of high-end casual elegance with a dash of “i-don’t-have-to-try-to-be-cool-because-it-just-comes-naturally-to-me.” the allure is certainly a play of opposites that precludes a pigeon-hole: it is both masculine and sexy, both refined and laid back. recent runway collections have included a sprinkling of variations such that the blue oxford is turning out to be a key piece for fall. now is a great time to invest in a piece with great lines that will stay with you for years. below i have hooked you up with a little blue oxford inspo and well as five great options to accommodate any budget.



i think we can all agree that it is not humanly possible to be cooler than this. this is the pinnacle. this is when we all knew that mary kate and ashley were capable of designing a major label. because you can’t get any cooler.
