Dressing from the shoes, up
Shoes for work so great you won't even think about your feet.
So many style savants swear by getting dressed from the shoe, up. Meaning, they choose their shoes before the rest of their outfit. This is WISE! A shoe out of wack can make you (me) squirm all day. It can leave you either uncomfortable or just feeling awkward. Not to mention, shoes are the most important element in dressing for weather. Is it going to rain? Is the humidity so high my feet are fat? Am I walking with colleagues from A to B? Now this does not mean your shoe must (or should) be a statement shoe, just that you should start planning the look there.
Today, 30(!!) shoes. By far my most complete and comprehensive guide since launching 5 Things. But there were just so many key points to discuss when choosing a work shoe and I couldn’t stop. We will talk about ballerinas that feel substantial enough to ground a dress, the pumps everyone should have on standby, grown up Mary Janes (an unavoidable trend!), loafers, etc. So without further ado, SHOES! FOR! WORK!
