My Take On The Menswear Trend: Sneaker Oxfords




I’ve been coveting Mike’s sneaker oxfords.  He wears his with a suit during the week, and jeans on the weekends.  As if the already huge comfort-chasm between guy’s clothes and women’s clothes needed to widen.  Ugh.

But this latest resurgence of the menswear trend feels a little more….equal opportunity.  Spoiler alert:  I found the shoes.

Additionally, I found myself developing something of a formula (which sounds so much better than ‘rut’):  menswear accessories mixed with delicate little jewelry.   The backdrop for all of this?  A classic button-down shirt.

The hard part, at least for me, is putting it all together.  Here are a few other “sets” that balance the menswear trend with just the right amount delicate jewelry.

  1. I did not know these shoes existed. Best of both worlds!!!! I love Oxfords and while I like the comfort of sneakers I find it hard to feel cute in them so… you have started my day off with a smile! #shoppingenabled

  2. I have the gray Cole Haan pair pictured above. They feel like you are walking on air!! I wish I could wear them everyday. Unfortunately while they seem easy to pair with ANYTHING, I struggle to make them work as often as I would like. If this is your style, POUNCE on these gems, theyre AMAZING. Thanks for the simple styling suggestion, I’ll add that too the list, love this top!

    • They are, by far, the most comfortable things ever. I wear them with skinnies and giant cozy sweaters. What works for you (or what would you like to wear with them)? Am happy to brainstorm!

    • I have the gray pair featured too! I usually wear mine with black cropped jeans. I prefer some ankle to show with them, so I’m not sure how much I’ll wear them in the winter (except for when I change out of boots at work).

    • OMG Jem, THANK YOU FOR NOTICING! We’re cramming all kind of good stuff into these last two weeks because next week we’re kicking off a new series that will hopefully be lighthearted and funny. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated this comment. 🙂 xoxo

  3. I’m with Jem. It seems like fall 2016 has finally found its groove!
    Q. for wearers of distressed denim: is it just me, or is it slightly nerve-wracking to put on jeans with knee holes, all the while hoping your big toe won’t catch on the openings and rip the leg right off? I really want to pull off this look but I’ve been terrified of ripped jeans for years.
