pfft. who said that? i believe the fashion gods say that if you can pull off something, nobody’s stopping you from wearing it
try them. oxfords always look great with pants for a boyish look. try loose dress pants or khakisposted over 4 years ago
Mmh, i’m the same. So obsessed with a whole bunch of stuff just cause they look cute. Anyway, I say, get them! Try it out, be confident, you’ll look great! I don’t think they are a no-no for summer at all! :Dposted over 4 years ago
well I also have wider hips and I love oxfords but my sister always tells me I should always wear heels (because otherwise my hips look huge)… well the thing is I don’t like medium high heels so I always run around in killer heels that really destroy my feet (to be honest)
So my boyfriend asked me why I always wear those awfully high heeled shoes if they hurt me so much so I told him and he laughed… he said that it was utter nonsense, that I look cute in sneakers.. so I figured.. if i look cute in sneakers, I’ll look cute in oxfords and if I don’t at least I won’t be in pain anymore… so now I’m looking for the right pair of oxfords
To an extent, I think this is true, because oxfords look small, and are a kind of shoe that make the bottom portion of your body do this: \/
It’s just the truth of the shoe, and the proportions, although I think they can work depending on styling. I wouldn’t say no to them completely just because they don’t always work with the body type you have if you like them that much. Just find ways to wear them and make sure that it balances your body out.posted over 4 years ago
hmm i think you should try them on for yourself, and decide if you like them, and if you are not sure still, ask friendsposted over 4 years ago
Thanks everyone for your replies! I definitely want to try some on but I live in an unfashionable place so it might be a while before something turns up. Hopefully I can find some by fall and see how they work! I might look for some with a bit of a heel to see if that changes the way things look.posted over 4 years ago

Oxfords! They’ve got nothing to do with the size of your hips. And I’d totally wear them in summer, with shorts and a tank with some detailing.posted over 4 years ago
i have hips and i get compliments when i wear them.. you will too! go for it!posted over 4 years ago
I don’t think hips are a problem at all! I think it’s the length of your legs that might be an issue. Since they cut off at the ankle, or close to the ankle, it’ll make your legs look shorter. Similar to how gladiators with ankle straps make your legs look shorter. So if you are short, I would avoid oxfords.
I made this mistake! I am 5 feet, and don’t exactly have legs that go on for miles. I bought flat oxfords and took them back immediamente. I also bought heeled oxfords, kept them, but now regret it because they look ridiculous if I wear them with anything but skinny jeans!
I think whether you choose to buy oxfords should be based on how you like or dislike them on you.posted over 4 years ago
