It’s hard to imagine that before last year, girlie versions of menswear-inspired oxford flats weren’t a wardrobe staple for nearly every in-style fashionista. And while the trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, like many much-loved and well-established fashion fixation, it’s inevitably going to get its seasonal updates to keep the look fresh (and keep the trend out of “tired fad” territory)! This season the oxford is stepping up its game with schoolgirl-inspired pumps, giving the otherwise casual flat a boost in height, dressiness, and an added dose of feminine flair. These suede oxford heels from Urban Outfitters are a good basic pair to use a reference point, but for something a bit more fun, these Poetic License ‘Backlash’ pumps look like they stepped straight from a fairy tale (in the most adorable way possible, of course)! The preppy heel isn’t exactly new, but this season’s modernized versions are a bit more fun and whimsical than the pair you might have been forced to wear with your private school uniform!
