Last winter, I decided to purchase a pair of oxfords so I would have a fully enclosed shoe that was flat. I opted for a pair that was simple and stylish and bought the Crown Vintage Elim slip-on oxford. Luckily for me, the oxfords were on sale in the color I wanted, a distressed grey that was actually described as brown on the box.
Since buying the oxfords, I haven’t worn them much. Underutilizing these shoes doesn’t even make sense because when I think about these oxfords, I always connect them with several other items already in my wardrobe.
“Fashion Thesaurus” is one of my new series that will showcase items that I always connect with each other. This fashion thesaurus has helped me decide what to edit from my wardrobe and also what to add.
So, to ensure that I put these fabulous oxfords to use, I decided to open my fashion thesaurus today and share some of the items that I always associate with these oxfords.

|In my mind, a pair of jeans is always a good match for
oxfords. The jeans work well when cuffed too.

Now that I’ve consulted my fashion thesaurus, I think these oxfords will get worn more.
