Have you considered wearing bright shoes to work? When I was still teaching, I loved wearing high heels that were either bold in color or in style. I remember my pair of red DÓrsay kitten heels; they were stunning and comfortable that I wore them every other day for about two years. I styled them with dark colored skirts such as maroon, dark red, navy or black. On more casual days, I teamed them with light colored A-line skirts.
If you´re considering wearing bright colored shoes to work but you´re unsure how to do it, here are three looks to inspire you.
1. Navy Suit for Work with Red Shoes
The key in keeping your work outfit powerful is by going for a dark suit + skirt set such as this one in navy. Red is an equally powerful color so adding a sleek red sandal paired with a red handbag to the look will result to a fresh yet totally professional ensemble.
You can break your suit by teaming it with other dark colored pencil skirts such as black or wine.
2. Powerful Suit with Red Pumps
Although pants suit has become the most in-demand work outfit for women, the reality is that, a head-to-toe one set can be boring. Imagine wearing this gray pants suit several times a week, and styling it with same black shoes, black bag and button downs all the time, I´m sure you´ll get bored to death.
Shake up your work look by wearing your pants suit with a pair of bright red pumps. They give your outfit a good dose of color pop. Swap your black bag with a navy handbag to add more color, albeit still professional, to the outfit.
3. Bright Top Matched with Pumps for Casual Fridays
The international school where I last worked for allowed us to wear casual-smart outfits on Fridays. If your company also gives you the same treat, then styling up some black skinny jeans with a colored top matched with a pair of colored pumps is a good idea. To keep your outfit work appropriate, I would suggest going for three quarter sleeves blouse.
Because your top and shoes are already bright, stick to a black handbag for polishing.
What do you think? Are you willing to give bright shoes to the office a try?
