The hardest part of getting dressed for your internship is the shoes. Do you look classy in pumps? On-trend in some cool booties or wedges? Conservative in flats? Moreover, does it even matter when all you want to do is be comfortable?
Meet oxfords, your new go-to internship shoe. Oxfords are trendy but not overly so (they were super “in” last year, meaning this year they’re just a regular cute shoe), they’re dressier than a boring ballet flat, and the best part? They are FLAT.
If you’re wondering how to wear them, check out these chic celebs on WhoWhatWear.com. We recommend experimenting with two-tone oxfords, classic leather brogues, or even something a little sparkly if you work in a more laid-back office. Our favorites include:
