Getting dressed for work shouldn’t be a bore. Welcome to Business Casual— here to make your weekdays easier.
The grandma-looking block heel isn’t a new trend — early adopters have been wearing the chunky shoes for a few years now. But it’s gone mainstream, as evidenced by Everlane’s wildly popular Day heels and Nordstrom’s devoted search filter. And for good reason: Block heels are comfortable, sensible, and very work-friendly. They look good with nearly everything in your closet, from dresses to skirts and even pants. The trick to keeping them from delving into schlumpy territory? Show a bit of ankle. Scroll ahead to shop our favorites that are $150 or less — sometimes much less.
