Saw these cute shoes, but I have no idea (aside from menswear) what to wear with them.  I shall be very grateful to any suggestions.  Thanks!!!

Oh, I love those!  And you're right, they would go perfect with menswear, but girled up with a pretty shirt.

I was thinking some wide leg herribone pants and a cream colored shirt:

(pants Anthropologie, shirt bluefly).

Or, some opaque brown tights and a tweed jumper dress.  Like this:

Oh! Those are cute.

I could see wearing tweed or herringbone as well, and also they would look good with darker denim with a tweed or herringbone blazer and a blousy top. They say "fall" to me. Actually, I think they would be a fun "build the outfit."

Hi,

I just got a pair too, mine are black on black spectator lace-up oxfords.  Aside from the obvious thing of wearing them with pants - try them with tights and almost anything.  They are great with a pencil skirt, wool, denim, whatever.  I wore mine with a tiered velvet skirt which worked really well.  I think they would look fab with a jacket and knee-length cuffed shorts suit.  Or any kind of long coat over a sweater dress.  A long silky skirt and sweater coat would absolutely work.  So would a short jacket and skirt.  Just be creative.  As long as you try to work with the colors in the shoes, like light or dark brown tights, and include at least one heavier fabric in your outfit to balance the weight of the shoes, you will look great!!
