Classic Essentials - No. 2 The Oxford Shirt


The oxford shirt is definitely a basic piece that always looks classy and sophisticated.
I really do think that oxford shirts look amazing in all varieties of colors, but for my closet essentials, I decided to pick out my black, white, and sky blue ones. The oxford shirt, I set aside for my lazy days when I still want to look nice -- I'll simply pair them with some blue cuffed jeans and nice, simple heels. I consider the white and sky blue oxford shirt very classy and something a classy closet definitely needs.

Where to find:
I've found Ralph Lauren to have amazing oxford shirts. Their oxford shirts come in amazing colors -- even the sky blue (it's actually quite hard to find "the perfect tone" sky blue oxford shirt) and they have great classy fits. After all, Ralph Lauren has been around for a long time! Ralph Lauren oxford shirts are a bit pricey (roughly around $90+), but in my opinion, they are completely worth it. If you aren't looking to splurge on these shirts, you can also find great alternatives at affordable prices at Forever 21 and H&M.

Styling ideas -- Try it like this!:
* Khaki pants and boat shoes, oxford shoes, basic black or nude court heels
* Black pants or dark wash blue jeans and oxford shoes, basic black court heels, or basic black platform sandals
* White pants and boat shoes, oxford shoes, simple red pumps, or basic nude court heels.
* Gray sweater or cardigan over with black pants or dark wash blue jeans
* Trench coat with black pants and basic nude or black court heels, basic black platform sandals, or simple black flats
* Black or navy blazer with khaki pants and oxford shoes or basic black or nude court heels.

& the list goes on.. ! There are so many great outfits you can style with the oxford shirt.
It looks perfect worn alone during spring and summer as well as layered for fall and winter -- a timeless piece indeed!

  1. i have a lot of blouses that have collars and i feel that those are a bit too dressy for everyday wear. but from the looks of the oxford shirt, it's casual yet chic/dressy without being too forward.

    i definitely need an oxford shirt in my closet!
