Although heels and boots may hold a permanent place in everyone's closet, sometimes you just need to slip into something comfortable. Strappy sandals and ballet flats are perfect additions to any weekend outfit involving a pair of jeans, but if you're looking for a more sophisticated touch, you might want to experiment with Oxford shoes. They're a refreshing alternative to the more common shoe selections.

While there are a plethora of classic black leather designs, fashion seems to be favoring versions that are more daring. From shiny patent leather to rustic raffia and Prada's platform Oxfords, these shoes effortlessly complement denim looks. Leading fashion icons such as Olivia Palermo have adopted them as staples in their wardrobes. Currently, they're appearing on our Instagram feed in droves, particularly the platform styles. Take a peek at our top picks and join the trend.
