DRESS TO IMPRESS: Best Fashion Shoes for Working Gals

Without question, we believe in the power of GOOD SHOES! Much like our jewelry pieces, shoes often serve as that finishing piece…they pull the look together! Today, we wanted to give a dose of style inspiration to all of our working gals. From the more traditional business gal to the casual employee to the creative, there’s a perfectly stylish (and comfortable) flat, mid-heel and high heel that works for you. Here’s a round up of what we suggest for YOU!




FLAT: Every business gal needs a tried and true flat. Something that she can wear on the daily or perhaps even throw in her bag and change into a little later in the day. This ballet flat by AGL is truly perfect. Known for it’s classic silhouette and incredible comfort, this flat can be easily paired with ankle pants or a straight leg pant. It also comes in a few other colors…like a burnt orange, which could be super fun as we roll into Fall! Nordstrom; AGL Cap Toe Ballet Flat, $310. 


MID-HEEL:  Can you wear a mule in a more traditional office? Absolutely, but it also comes down to the shape of the shoe and the heel height. This mule by Stuart Weitzman makes the cut for sure! It’s subtle pointed toe makes it sleek and classic. The top of the shoe provides plenty of coverage for the top of the foot. And lastly, the mid-heel is the PERFECT HEIGHT. This is definitely one of those shoes that you’ll find yourself wearing regularly to the office! Stuart Weitzman Mira Mule, $182. 


HIGH HEEL: A traditional pointy toed pump is always a classic choice for our business gals. It screams classic sophistication and femininity. Since this is a shoe you will likely wear on repeat and for long periods of time, we suggest a well-made shoe, like Manolo Blahnik! Other notable brands include Stuart Weitzman and Sam Edelman. Rather than opting for the usual solid colored pump, select something with some texture and uniqueness! We are loving this neutral python print…it’s sooo good!  Nordstrom; Manolo Blahnik Python Pointy Pump, $935.

FLAT: This shoe fits the bill for the gal who is in a business casual setting, wanting comfort and not sacrificing style. We love this designer; it’s Italian made, so comfort is king. Also, the pointed toe allows this to look polished, yet chic. Nordstrom; AGL Soft Pointy Toe Moccasin Loafer, $370
MID-HEEL: This is the perfect height for the woman who wants a little lift (less than 2.5″) and it’s chic enough to throw on with a summer midi dress or feminine blouse and trouser pant. Just a small peep of the toe, keeps it sophisticated and perfect for the casual office. Neiman Marcus; Pedro Garcia, $540.
HIGH HEEL: A wedge = comfort. And stability. And height. And a whole lot of fashion. Perfect for the lady who needs/wants the height, yet whose feet are equally important! Saks Fifth Avenue; Schutz Raquel Polished Leather Wedge Sandal, $155
As stylists, we are always looking for shoes that are comfortable as we are on our feet all day with our clients and out shopping for hours on end! But we never want to sacrifice style! We also work with many clients in creative roles who feel the same way.
FLAT: We love these snake print loafers…so cute with a skinny jean, t-shirt, and blazer, or paired with a great flat-front pant for an edgy yet sophisticated look. Neiman Marcus; Sam Edelman Jordy Snake Print Loafer, $150.
MID-HEEL: These little heels are a great way to add a bit of height without going into too high of a heel. The slight lift makes them versatile with many outfit options…put them with a skirt and a tee, wear with a maxi dress and blazer, or dress up your denim in them. The style is so on trend, and perfect for a creative! Shopbop; LOQ Square Toe Flats, $325
HIGH HEEL: On our feet all day, we don’t tend to go too high, but an ankle bootie with a chunky heel allows you to go higher than normal without sacrificing comfort. These are so chic paired with a dress or skirt, or a great way to dress up a straight leg denim paired with a pretty blouse. The open toe makes them a wear now AND into Fall bootie. Nordstrom; ETIENNE AIGNER Simone Peep Toe Bootie, $268.
