Amassing a collection of pumps in a suite of colours is great. Amassing a collection of colourful pumps that fail to be worn more than once is not so great. Most women admit to falling into the latter. When it comes to shoes for the office, it really is about quality over quantity. Whether your job requires you to wear a power suit or jeans and a tee, shoes are an essential part of the aesthetic, unless of course, you’re a yogi. For the woman bound to an office of sorts, here are six pairs of shoes you need in your arsenal to put your best foot forward in the next meeting – and they’re completely worth the investment.
Thanks to the revival of Gucci’s Brixton Leather Loafers, androgynous footwear is back and you won’t find one woman who is unhappy about it. The fact a good pair of loafers feel like your comfy old slippers should be reason enough to invest in a pair ASAP. On top of this, they’re completely office-acceptable, and you can add a little personality by choosing some with embellishments, bold colours or prints. Stick to blacks and neutrals if you prefer a classic look. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
