For decades women have been taking fashion cues from their male counterparts, creating an androgynous sensibility that has since become very popular today. From Katherine Hepburn in the 1930’s, to the Le Smoking suit created by fashion giant, Yves Saint Laurent—women all over have been embracing menswear into their daily wardrobes. More and more we’re seeing men’s inspired suits walk down the runways during fashion week. Let’s not forget a few of our beloved wardrobe staples: a boyfriend jean and cardigans. And now with the rise of the oxford trend, we’re adopting men shoe trends.  Clearly we’re not only wearing the pants, but we’re also walking in the shoes.  Here are a few of our favorite menswear-inspired footwear options for this fall season.

Keeping the oxford trend moving forward, opt for a neutral pair that’s sure to become your fall go-to shoe when you’re feet are craving something flat and comfortable.
