Put Your Best Foot Forward On Casual Friday

17 Jul

Casual Day

So today I received an email requesting some insight into what would be a good alternative to wearing flip-flops into the office on Casual Friday. Now this is a good inquiry mainly because, while flip-flops are practical (easy to slip on, tucks away nicely into a handbag), you look less than professional stepping into the office wearing a pair.

There are quite a few alternatives that are office-appropriate:

  • Point-toed flats
  • Open-toed flats
  • Wedges
  •  T-strapped sandals

Another idea could include paring your best fitting jeans and a crisp button-down shirt with a pair of loafers, like the ones featured above. They’re simple, sophisticated, stylish, and offers up the casual put-togetherness that flip-flops does not in a work place environment. I also like ’em because they’re so multi-faceted, capable of taking you from the high-octane corporate world to running mundane errands on the weekends. Much like nude pumps, I believe that a great pair of loafers could also be a footwear staple for the young professional woman…

      Thank you!! Business casual can at times be a bit tricky to master.

      Thank you. I’m no expert on business casual, but my hard-and-fast rules are, no flip-flops and if you’re going to wear jeans, choose a dark wash.

    The shoes, the bag are just my type.

      Yeah, I really like them too! Especially in that neutral color, cause they can be paired with anything!
