Hi, I'm Erin, and I'm a fashion stylist. An oxford shirt is by definition a buttoned down shirt with a collar and cuff sleeves. I think of it simply as a classic white shirt. Jeans are one of the easiest things to wear with the oxford. Our model Brittany can show you the look. She's wearing a white buttoned down shirt from Nordstrom. It's fitted, but not too tight to give her shape. Be careful to select a shirt that gives you some breathing room so that the buttons don't stretch too far apart or even come undone as you move. No one wants a wardrobe malfunction. Another white shirt snafu to avoid is that space that sometimes occurs between one side of the shirt and the other along the buttons. Sometimes these spaces end up exposing a little more to the world than we want to. To avoid this wear a slim fitting white tank underneath. I paired this crisp white shirt with a great pair of dark wash boot cut jeans. The darker the wash, the dressier and more elegant the jean. You just want to be careful with this kind of jean not to let the dye rub off on your nice white shirt. You can avoid this by washing your jeans inside out with other dark clothes in cold few times. I tucked her shirt into the jeans and added a skinny black and gold crock waist belt. Brittany is wearing a leopard print ballet flat. The ballet flat can be extremely comfortable if you find the right pair. I think the pattern shoe adds a little interest to the overall look. I finished out the look with a gold chain link necklace, gold bangle and hoops. You may think of an oxford shirt as being boring or plain, but it doesn't have to be. Brittany looks classic and pulled together.
