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
- 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…
