Firstly thank you for all your emails and comments regarding the haircut. Short hair can be polarizing at the best of times – never mind when it it is as short or severe as mine currently is! So it’s reassuring to hear so many positive views – thank you! For those that asked here are my Ginnifer Goodwin inspiration photos that I took to my hairdresser. I think she looks amazing with short hair!
So when sporting a severe, short chop it is risky territory starting a blogpost with ‘Menswear’ as the title. Personally I think it can be done if you keep the colors feminine and the make-up soft as I have here. I have wanted a pair of Oxfords/Brogues for sometime, and after Kat highlighted the Clarks Hamble Oak in nude, I picked a pair up while I was back in the UK. Much cheaper than the Boden version I’d been eyeing (though I do still love the off white version), and they are incredibly comfortable worn without socks – they do fit big in my opinion – I’m normally a UK 6 and these are a 5 1/2.
Here are some of my favorite looks with Oxfords (although all of them have long hair darn it!). The key for me is to keep the ankles on show, which again helps to keep the look a bit more feminine.
And of course the Queen of oxfords – Alexa Chung – I LOVE this look:
