Q. I’ve been eyeing the Tuxxedo shoes from Steve Madden for a while now. I absolutely adore them in black and white, but I wonder if they’re too formal looking for every day wear? How I could I rock them or the ones in cognac?
A. Menswear-inspired Oxford shoes can be worn casually many different ways. Take a cue from Selma Blair, Taylor Swift and Sienna Miller by pairing your Oxfords with everything from dresses and skirts to skinny or boyfriend jeans.
The black and white Tuxxedo does have a slightly more dressy feel, but you can still wear it casually – and it would look great with a boyfriend blazer and leggings. If you’re unsure about whether you can pull it off or not, then go for the cognac color like the pair Taylor Swift is wearing above.
