Tips and Trends: Office-Appropriate Boots

5 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Professional Boots 


Incorporate boots seamlessly into your fall, work wardrobe with these simple tips and style suggestions. Boots are a great way to mix things up, give you feet a break from sky high pumps and embrace a favorite fall trend. Here are some work-appropriate boot styles you can successfully wear to the office this fall, and tips on what to look for when shopping for your next pair. 

1. Opt for Closed Toe 

Although peep toe boots are fashionable this season, opt for more conservative closed toe boots at the office. Because boots already have a more casual look, air on the side of caution and keep your office footwear closed toe and professional. Save the peep toe booties for a weekend night on the town!

2. Choose Elegant versus Casual 

Choose a pair of boots with an elegant look. I love a gold zipper or buckle to add elegance to a more casual shoe. Stay away from overly casual or distressed boots that will not fit the professional look of a corporate office setting.

3.  Look for Feminine Details 

Boots tend to be a more masculine shoe, so booties with feminine details and accents can be a perfect combination of both the masculine and feminine. This option will keep your professional outfit from looking too harsh and keep your footwear feminine and chic.

4. Play with Color 

Boots do not have to be just brown or black. There are so many other beautiful fall colors, perfect for boots this season. Experiment with new booties in a gorgeous bordeaux, burgundy or navy hue to add a pop of color to your work outfit.

5. Ease into the Look 

Still unsure whether boots will fit with your professional wardrobe? Choose a pair of stilettos that has the look of a bootie to ease into the trend. You can find heels with leather all the way up the shoe and a zippered back to give the look of a fall boot with the same professional feel of a set of heels.
