Casual Work Shoes Got You Stumped? Alternatives to the Stiletto Pump
September 16, 2022
When it comes to workwear, there’s one element in the modern office wardrobe that has SO many of Los Angeles Stylist Meg Gallagher‘s clients totally STUMPED! The element in question? Casual work shoes. After years of sweatpants, it’s no wonder that the world has moved away from once-standard stiletto heels in the office. The question remains: When building a casual work wardrobe, what is the best alternative to a traditional stiletto pump?
Heels give us confidence and poise when we go to meetings; They fight the feeling of “frumpiness” and flatter the leg in work trousers, dresses and skirts. And with full leg trousers and other billowy silhouettes defining the modern uniform, heels give necessary height to the leg that casual work shoes like flats and flat-heeled loafers just don’t provide.
We are loving the direction and height of trending shoe styles like Chunky Pumps, Kitten Heels, Platform Sneakers, Heeled Boots, Mules and Heeled Loafers. These shoe silhouettes give just enough elevation and support to keep you from swimming in the extra fabric of relaxed 2022 silhouettes. We love that these shoes also give that professional “heel” look, eliminating the feeling of “sloppiness” and bringing confidence and balance to the modern bend.
