I’m the type of person who becomes obsessed with something after the slightest little nothing. I’ve known about the existence of oxfords for some time now (with a mental note to possibly try them out at some point), but I saw someone wearing the perfect pair on television and now I want some to the point of ridiculousness. DILEMMA: I was looking up some on a site, and a review said they’d look bad on anyone with hips. What’s your opinion on this? I don’t have huge hips, but certain unfortunate choices in clothing can make them “grow” like crazy haha. I try to avoid looking bottom-heavy. Do you think shoes like this are bad for this body type?

ALSO, would you say these are a no-no for summer? I mean, I probably wouldn’t wear them in the heat of the day (based on the fact that I would die), but maybe at night?

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 khakis

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.

hmm i think you should try them on for yourself, and decide if you like them, and if you are not sure still, ask friends

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.

Oxfords may make your feet look larger or wider. Not your hips.

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.
