The preppy Oxford shirt style is a mainstay in the wardrobe of casually chic professionals everywhere, and these contemporary finds are perfectly fetching additions.

Named after the material they're made of, Oxford shirts can be easily dressed up or down; pair with a tie for evening outings or with jeans for a business-casual look. What you'll notice is that the traditional style of Oxford is reworked with unusual patterns and accents that help give them a more modern feel. Additionally, the shirt is usually worn by the contempo-casual individual, but more high-fashion brands are picking up the style to inject a little geek-chic attitude into designs to tone down more eccentric clothing choices. If you're a girl who loves the boyfriend clothing style, these preppy Oxford shirt styles are also perfect for you, as the cut is easily made unisex.
