Shop 19 Polished Oxfords That Scream Summer Fun

View in slideshow

We're all about Summer fun, but sometimes that's difficult to do in heels. That's where the borrowed-from-the-boys oxford comes in. The lower-heel profile makes them comfortable, but don't fret, they don't lose an ounce of cool. Whether the silhouette is classic (think brogue detailing and a patent finish) or culls fashion-forward accents like metallic shine, exotic texture, leather cutouts, or colorblocking, there's certainly a more dynamic way to interpret (read: wear) the flat oxford look. Luckily, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and even Zara have all crafted their own versions to appeal to a handful of style personalities. As for execution? Remember that these shoes work for day and night — and as long as you show a little ankle (at the very least), you're good to go. Click on for 19 of our favorite Summer oxford picks now.
