Styling yourself in the morning is hard. Especially pre-coffee and post wine.
First, you have to figure out whether your styling process will revolve around showing off your favourite feature, like those legs of yours. Or today you might be in the mood to find the comfiest combination – thanks to that red wine workout you did last night.
Fortunately, there are those days when styling yourself head to toe in velour is okay. These are the days when you don’t have to leave the house.
Unfortunately – for most of us – that only applies to two days a week, leaving five where we must rummage through our closets to find work appropriate outfits.
And getting dressed for work is no easy undertaking, especially when there is a big personality difference between work-you and weekend-you. Half the time it feels like you’re looking the wardrobe of two people.
Weekend-you likes bohemian dresses, anklets and fedoras, whilst weekday-you can be spotted in pencil skirts, ponte peplum tops and fancy coats.
The problem becomes more apparent when it’s time to shop; you want to make sure if you buy that top for work, you can still wear it after hours. And vice versa.
But you’ll notice we haven’t yet touched on shoes, because let’s face it: tops and skirts are a dime a dozen, but diamonds shoes are a girl’s best friend.
So let us help you select some office appropriate shoes that can also be enjoyed.
If you’re looking for a heel with a twist, try Calista in Seashelle Suede. It will give you some added height while keeping those working fee comfortable. The easy colour will tie in well with almost anything you throw on, from work to weekend.
Shelby is that perfect midway point between boot and pump, allowing for an easy weekend-to-weekday transition. Style them with a crop pant to highlight your legs and the unique shape of the shoe.
Dezzy is the ultimate warm-weathered accessory. If you’re rocking a white strappy dress to brunch on Saturday, or channeling a retro bombshell, stick to a lighter colour palette to keep it fresh.
Kat can instantly lift your classic corporate look into the realm of high fashion. The peep toe let’s you show off your latest pedicure – or at least give you a reason to get one. Counter the bold heel with soft curls and smokey eyes- then add a red lip went it’s time to clock off.
