The white oxford shirt is a definite wardrobe staple, and not just for a dressy or ‘work’ occasion. This item can be worn so many different ways, and is one of the top items you need to have in your wardrobe. In this outfit, I dressed it up a little with a silky swaying pant. You can also wear it with jeans, under sweaters or cardigans, tucked into a high waist skirt, with jean shorts… seriously, there are so many options because it is so versatile. I have talked about this before, but there are also a few different styles. The kind that has darts in the back and is tailored, is more for suiting and work, and definitely to be tucked in. The more relaxed version of the oxford shirt is a little longer, sometimes longer in back, and does not go in at the (natural) waist. This tie one is perfect for the high waist pant. A good classic oxford that I recommend is probably this one, and here is one with ruffles for a little flair detail.
I will be wearing it all spring, as it can finish off an outfit, or create a simple chic look with just about any clothing item. I also love adding a neck scarf. The wide leg pant is something that is tricky to wear, but can be really fun. You really need to keep the top tighter when tucking it in. Also keep in mind, that if you do a wide leg jean or corduroy, you can do a baggy sweater, but always wear a heel of some kind. Wide leg pants are something people are scared of, but if you do it right for your body type, they can actually elongate you. The higher on the waist, the better, even if you are wearing a slouchy sweater (like this one). This FP one is perfect for anything and comes in 11 colors. This off-the-shoulder one is a great option for Valentine’s day, as well as lounging around this spring!
