Fall Fashion: Heeled Oxfords

Old-school Oxfords can be any low shoe that is laced or tied over the instep. But this fall (as in seasons past) the classic Oxford is being reinvented with a high heel and feminine details that take this menswear-inspired shoe to a whole new, ladylike level. Wear heeled Oxfords with anything from suits and pencil skirts, to wide-leg trousers and fall frocks, or even tights and tailored shorts in a cold-weather fabric such as wool or tweed.
