Question: What are some great office appropriate flats?
It’s 7:42 a.m. and you roll over in bed to discover you’ve snoozed through your alarm yet again. You take a shower (rather, a rinse), apply mascara and a rouge lip, throw together an outfit, and slip on your shoes as you rush out the door. Let’s face it: sometimes we just don’t have time to put much thought into a work look on a Monday morning.
“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” -Marilyn Monroe
In the office, your choice of clothing is the first impression you give to coworkers, higher-ups, and clients. Unless you’re working at a fashion label, you’ve probably got strict guidelines on what constitutes as office-appropriate attire. Shoes are a great way to incorporate a little personality into your look. When I think office wear, I think of a blouse and a blazer paired with slacks or a midi pencil skirt. Your shoes should exude an equally professional vibe.
“You dress for the job you want, not the one you have.” -Picture Perfect
A shoe doesn’t have to be expensive to be fabulous. Of course, if you have the money to invest, you can find shoes of better quality with a nicer fit. You should pay attention to shape and texture because these two things tell you if a shoe is appropriately dressy, or if it’s too casual. If you want to avoid heels, a pointed-toe flat still gives your look that sense of authority. A patent loafer can give off a chic menswear vibe. If sandals are an okay option for your place of work, opt for a strappy pair with ankle straps. Just avoid something you’d wear to the beach!
