Summer Shoe Must-Have: Jazz Oxfords

 Fame Pictures

The oxford jazz shoe or menswear broque shoes are being embaced by women in Hollywood. It's not a new trend, but certainly fashion news.

The $38 version from Urban Outfitters come in pewter, dark blue and champagne. And designers are having fun kind of cross-breeding the shoes — an old fashioned oxford shoe is being mashed up with a manly wingtip and then the shoelaces are ripped away. What's nice about this shoe is that you're not scrunched into a very narrow toe box like a pump and they're flat to the ground.

Tired of flip flops, ballerinas and Tevas? It's time to step it up! Cool, comfortable and classy, oxfords are the perfect shoes to wear with almost anything. Whitney Port, Diane Kruger, Hilary Duff and Sienna Miller really bring it on because they all manage to take a look borrowed from the boys and make it appear super feminine and really sexy.
