Heels and flats are fine some days, but there are other days you would like to wear something a little different. While the office dress code does need to be taken into consideration, there are plenty of dress boots that would work just fine. All you have to do is settle on the style that fits in with your body type, the attire you choose, and also happens to offer the comfort and support needed to get through the day. Here are some tips that will help.
Slouchy boots with a low heel go well with quite a few different outfits that are suitable for the office. For example, they would go well with a pair of dress slacks that are fitted rather than tapered. Pair the boots and slacks with a matching jacket and some type of simple top. All you will need are simple accessories like a gold necklace and maybe a set of petite earrings to round out the look. If this sounds like a good option to you, consider the LeMans or Verona by Pikolinos shoes
You will find that ankle boots have the advantage of being one of the most versatile styles for dressy settings like the workplace. The boots are just tall enough to support your ankles and will also look great with a tapered pair of dress slacks. You can also wear these boots with a skirt or a dress if you want. Unlike some other boot options, something like the Pikolinos’ Andorra Arcill are an especially good choice if you have more petite legs and would like to add some visual length to them. Try pairing them with a pencil skirt, a blouse in a contrasting color, and simple accessories. The look will say you are a professional while also indicating you have good taste.
Pointed Peep or Square Toes
What should you do about the toes? A lot depends on how conservative your work environment happens to be. A safe choice is to settle on a pair of dress boots that come with a square toe. Pointed toes will be fine in many office settings, especially when the heels you wear the rest of the week are pointed.
The most daring approach you might use in the office is the peep toe. Look closely at the dress code and if there is anything about only allowing open-toed shoes on casual days, stay away from this option. At the very least, you may want to save that cute pair of peep toe boots for an office party, casual day, or for changing into when you are planning on meeting friends after work.
Buckles Laces and Straps
Ornamentation on the boots can be a plus in some cases, but it can also be a bit much in an office setting. Perhaps something simple like the buckles found on many of the Brujas designs by Pikolinos will strike the perfect balance. If you do want boots with a bit of visual interest, try to select something that offers a minimum of ornamentation. That means if there are straps, opt for a design that doesn’t include laces. If the boot design does have straps, try to keep the buckles as small as possible. While you can’t go wrong with a minimalist approach, too much ornamentation may harm rather than help the look you are trying to achieve.
