Make It Crisp: 9 Fresh Oxford Shirts For Work

This season, the classic “borrowed-from-the-boys” button-down Oxford shirt comes alive via playful prints, avant garde cut-outs and flirty pastel hues. Undoubtedly amongst the top 10 must-have new items for this spring (look no further to designer heavyweights Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Balenciaga, Hermès, and Bottega Veneta), the Oxford shirt amalgamates a perfectly professional staple with refreshing new shapes and embellishment details that hit just the right note. Try a boxy oversized Oxford tucked into a pencil skirt for work, or slip one on under a set of dungarees (à la Balmain) for the weekend.
