Busy career women rejoice! You no longer have to trundle extra footwear around for evening dates and other engagements. Here are seven styles of shoe for both work and leisure.
A staple of business-formal and business-casual offices, pumps work fine as long as they are a neutral color.
2. Printed and patterned heels
Though colorful heels with patterns and prints can be a little less formal than black ones, they are still appropriate for the office. It can be fun to wear funky heels; they show personality. Don’t be afraid, then, to go for some animal prints.
A staple of business-formal offices, slingback, closed-toed heels
Fall is right around the corner, and that means it’s the perfect time for boots. Ideal for colder months, anything from booties to thigh-high boots
Flats — ballet flats, especially — are so versatile that they work both in and out of the office. If you’re not feelin’ heels, flats are a sophisticated, stylish alternative. More colorful and patterned versions can be worn in most offices to add some fun.
Compared to other office shoes, loafers tend to be a little roomier. Try wearing a pair with slacks or jeans and a blazer for a business-casual look. Want a less formal office ensemble? Cap it with a thin scarf!
Fall isn’t quite here yet. You still have plenty of time for sandals. In fact, sandals are a summer shoe staple in and out of the office. Looking for style and suitability? Check out heeled or wedge sandals, and try pairing them with a knee-length dress or a pair of cropped pants. Be sure to steer clear of flip-flops.
Never miss a step
For women who work nine to five, finding a shoe that they can wear to the office and on a night out can be challenging.
Regardless of style, shoes have to be comfortable, especially since you spend the whole day wearing them. No matter how formal or informal your office is, the shoes that you wear can be appropriate, stylish, and comfortable. There’s no need to compromise.
