SC Hack: Go head-to-toe black. Avoid contrasting separates with white plain oxfords as this is only going to take away length from your torso and legs!
TYPE: Cap Toe
SC Hack: The perfect choice for semi-formal occasions. Try ones with metallic finishes. Pair with your favorite pastels for a lady-like look.
SC Hack: Extending along either side of the shoe, this style comprises of a pointed cap extension known as a ‘wingtip’. A casual oxford by nature, it it also referred to as a brogue sometimes owing to the perforations along the length of the shoe. Pair with flat front trousers and a ruffled shirt. Skip socks for hipster appeal.
StyleCracker Hack: They lack toe caps but bear an additional layer of leather in contrasting color running along the middle of the top of the shoe. Don’t be afraid to pair wih clashing prints and quirky silhouettes.
StyleCracker Hack: Characterized by a tongue-like fringe hanging from the front, this style is definitely a one-off. Girls with those long, skinny legs, these shoes are calling for you!
