The oxford shoes are the classic type of shoes that are low cut, made of leather and have the iconic lace-up design. It’s the kind of iconic object that you don’t have a clear definition for, but you know exactly what it’s called when you see it. Nowadays they are worn almost like a toned down version of ankle boots. They add a little toughness to your outfit, but don’t look as wintry as the ankle boots. Now let me share with you some of my favorite oxford shoe outfit ideas.
Gray button-up shirt with silver oxford shoes
I’ll start the list with a rarer color. Don’t worry, I’ll be going back to the classic brown or black oxford shoes very soon. For this outfit, simply wear a gray button-up shirt and cuffed jeans with shiny silver oxford shoes. Without the silver oxford shoes, this outfit would have looked super boring.
Wear it with a black sweater and ripped jeans
For another comfy-looking business casual outfit, simply wear a black sweater with ripped jeans. Pair them with beige oxford shoes.
Wear with a white shirt and black blazer
In other blog posts, I’ve mentioned how versatile ankle boots are that putting them together with your formal outfits almost always works. You can speak the same of the oxford shoes. For example, this outfit is just a typical formal work outfit with the white shirt, black blazer and black dress pants. You can look taller and heavier in terms of mood with the ankle boots and more down to earth with the oxford boots. It’s also a good idea for those who like the rough, dark feel of leather shoes, but their partners are smaller than them.
Black long wool coat and brown oxford shoes
For a non-chunky winter look, you can wear brown oxford shoes with a gray sweater and a long black wool boot.
Off the shoulder sweater dress
So far, I’ve shared with you a few outfit ideas for oxford shoes. It is probably a good time to look into a little detail or trick that makes these outfits look so great. I’ll give you a hint. It’s about the socks. Do you see it? The trick is that oxford shoes are usually worn with no-show socks. Do not get me wrong. They look good even with socks. But usually they look best in no-show socks because such socks make the legs look longer. Back to that idea, the outfit simply consists of the sweater dress and oxford shoes. You can see that no socks are shown and more parts of the legs are shown making them look longer.
Brown oxford shoes with black denim shorts
For an artistic and creative way to dress casually, wear a white buttoned shirt, black blazer, and black denim shorts. Wear dark brown oxford shoes with ankle socks.
Wear it with a white knit sweater
If you are looking for an outfit that is so easy to take off and still looks decent, then this outfit is for you. First of all, you need a white, comfortable knitted sweater. You can just wear a long sleeved white t-shirt inside your sweater. Wear ripped short jeans with brown oxford shoes. This can be a good outfit for casual hangouts. BTW, if you like cable knit sweaters, you may like my other blog post on wearing cable knit sweaters.
Wear with a white sweater with black stripes
Oxford shoes are two colors are also very popular. For example, you can wear the blue and brown oxford shoes with a collared shirt, a slim white sweater with black stripes and black skinny jeans.
Wear it with black skinny jeans and a denim jacket
Wear a white t-shirt with black skinny jeans for a chic street outfit especially for fall. Combine them with oxford shoes and above all a stylish denim jacket.
White collar shirt and black sleeveless knitted sweater dress
This is a beautiful and student-like outfit that can make you stand out from the crowd. Wear a white collared shirt and a black sleeveless knit sweater dress over it. Black stockings and black oxford shoes are a nice complement to this outfit.
Gray t-shirt, black bomber jacket and shorts
As mentioned before, wearing the oxford shoes with no-show socks will make your legs look longer. When you wear them with shorts, your legs will look 10x long. (Okay, can be 5 percent longer). Just wear a gray t-shirt with a black bomber jacket and shorts.
Oxford shoes with shirt & cardigan
This outfit is a great demonstration of using layers to add character to your look. Wear a shirt with buttons with the long gray cardigan. Then wear black jeans with cuffs and silver oxford shoes. This outfit with the creative use of colors and layers results in a stylish work outfit that is perfect for designers and artists.
Wear it with Blue Sweater & Skinny Jeans
For an introverted yet classy and beautiful look, wear a blue sweater over a buttoned shirt. A pair of skinny jeans and brown oxford shoes are a nice complement to this look.
Black and white sweater & shirt White pleaded skirt
As a creative way to dress, wear a white sweater with random black patterns and a white skirt. Add a layer by wearing black leggings. Wear the classy white oxford shoes so that they go perfectly with all parts.

To dress like a minimalist, just wear a cream colored knit sweater and gray cotton skirt with the black oxford shoes.
