Spring and summer fashion is a breath of fresh air after a long gray cold winter — bright colors replace dark, neutrals and coats are replaced by flowy, airy tops. While we count down the days until we officially transition into a long-awaited warmer weather, it can make dressing for work a very challenging thing, it’s almost summertime—meaning that people go to work but always want to leave and spend the time enjoying the outside— also nobody wants to be dripping sweat on their commute or showing too much skin for a professional environment.
Most workplaces (especially offices) have some form of dress code. While some are more strict than others, most don’t allow tank tops or shorts, and many have summer footwear restrictions — which often includes no open-toed shoes.
And of course office dressing doesn’t mean you need to skip out on summer shoe trends completely! We found the best office-friendly options — whether you’re restricted to closed-toe options or plan on wearing sandals all summer. How to find the happy medium? We recommend matching heeled pumps like our MARLENE model with your office outfit (pants and white buttoned shirts), or our KIKI model (sand or celeste), if you work in a more relaxed place you’d feel very comfortable in our OLIVIA shoes. We all have very different opinions on comfortable and stylish summer shoes, find yours!
