It can be hard to dress the way you want, especially if you work in an office. If you’re lucky, your closet will have a big intersection between what you wear on and off the clock. If not, you might be hard-pressed to spend the majority of your week in an outfit that feels like you.
These three work-wear faves are here to remedy any problems you might face expressing yourself from nine to five.
For flat styles, try on the Bailee shoe, a polished style with menswear-inspired details. On top is a leather kiltie with tiny studs; around the ankle are careful wingtip perforations. Above, we pair it with patterned slacks and a sweater. We took a sporty-inspired approach to this shoe, but Bailee will go great with tailored suiting looks as well.
Now for the heels.
PRIM is a stunning loafer pump that instantly transforms a work outfit. For a modern professional look, we paired it with cropped trousers, a sweater, and a wool blazer. The heel is super wearable—not the kind you need to put under your desk before heading across the street to grab lunch.
PRIM is available in four beautiful leathers. Above, it’s pictured in Siena Suede leather, a rich brown perfect for fall.
There’s the AKI pump. Thanks to an antiqued metal ring fastening the leather straps, this pump has a vintage feel. Above, we chose British Tan leather, a hand-burnished brown marked by its dimension. For a dressy look, opt for this British Tan or Black, which feature a leather-covered heel. For a daytime look, try on the Pietra Suede, with a stacked leather heel.
So there you have it. If you’re trying to work it at work, consider a pair of shoes that are uniquely you.
