TREND: Classic Cool for Back to School

Fall means the end of summer and the beginning of school. While change is not always welcome, especially when it means trading the beach for classrooms, it can be beautiful. Who doesn’t love seeing the leaves turn from green to gorgeous vivid shades of red, orange, and yellow? And, there is nothing more beautiful then a new or revamped wardrobe.

Shopping for new notebooks with crisp white pages can give you a little bit of an adrenaline rush, but it's nothing compared to buying a new pair of shoes. Some would say office supplies are more practical than shoes; however, those people would be wrong. Okay, maybe they are not entirely wrong. Maybe, they are just a little misguided. Sure, those spiral notebooks and number 2 pencils are more practical than those new Frye boots when you go to study for your first quiz. Yes, those new pairs of embellished ballet flats will do you no good compared to a graphing calculator in your calculus class. And, okay, those old school oxfords will not be as handy as a highlighter when reading your political science textbook. But, of all the shoe trends this fall, old school oxfords exude a more academic vibe than the others. At the end of the day, you aren’t going to walk to class barefoot, so you might as well do it in style with some classic oxfords. 

Perfect for walking across campus for class or a latte, oxfords are a practical and adorable shoe. There is nothing lackluster or boring about oxfords. Menswear-inspired touches are everywhere this season. Plagiarism is never encouraged, but stealing a little style from the guys this season is one bright idea. Take it from this Fashionista who pairs her nude oxfords with denim shorts and a simple grey blazer. Worn with anything from shorts to dresses this season, classic oxfords will update your fall wardrobe. Who says it’s more fashionable to be too cool for school?

To get the classic oxford shoe look, don’t be afraid stray away from flats. While the Joie ‘Louie Louie II Wingtip Flats’ are amazing, let’s take this trend to new heights. The MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Tatum’ Oxford is the perfect way to step into this fall trend.
