Figuring out what to wear to work shouldn’t be a bore. To make your weekdays easier, welcome to Business Casual. Every Wednesday, we’ll highlight the best office-appropriate clothes, whether it’s for the job you have or the one you want.
There are some days when you walk into work, look down and hate everything you’re wearing. Or it could be an afternoon meeting that completely slipped your mind and you’re not in your optimal power outfit. And who hasn’t been at her desk at 5 p.m. only to get a last-minute text about a last-minute drinks night with old friends. For all of those emergencies that require your look to have that extra kick, consider stashing a stylish pair of heels at your desk. Depending on your office, it could be as simple as a pair of deep-red suede pumps or a patterned round-toe style. For others who can get away with wilder styles, there are fun pink slingbacks or floral options to really add oomph. The best part? They’re all under $200, so scroll ahead to shop our favorite emergency desk shoes.
If you’re wearing black trousers and a simple solid-colored blouse, a pair of floral pumps is that extra kick to make it feel street-style inspired.
Original Price: $120
Not everyone can appreciate a pair of strange white pumps, but if you’re the type to wear arty-black pieces to work, this looks especially cool.
Much like silver sneakers, silver heels can be your hidden styling trick when you want something flashy on your feet.
