The Flat Shoe Trend Celebrities Are Wearing Again

If fall 2016 was all about loafers, fall 2017 is all about oxfords (aka brogues or derby shoes). Earlier this year, the menswear-inspired flats style was declared dead, and there was even extensive data to back it up. Thanks to the Gucci endorsement, the only classic flats anyone seemed to want to wear were loafers, and while those are still going strong, we couldn't help but notice that celeb after celeb has stepped out in oxfords again as of late. Everything comes back around in fashion, but this time around, the oxfords in question come with an edge-adding twist: studs.

Just last night, Olivia Palermo stepped out for a dinner date in skinny jeans and Givenchy's studded chain brogues, and Karlie Kloss wore her Christian Louboutin pair throughout fashion month. What we love about this resurrected flats trend is that there are a number of other pieces you can and should wear them with. For example, they add a cool contrast with a dress or skirt, or you can embrace the rocker vibe and pair them with leather trousers à la Kloss. And since there are a ton of studded oxfords on the market right now, we rounded up a few of our favorites.

Below see how celebs are styling their oxford shoes this fall, and shop our studded oxford picks.
