Taking Espadrilles to Work

Espadrilles are a cute and comfortable style of shoe that works well for cocktails with the ladies, a date night or a festive summer party. But do they work in the office?

I think some espadrilles work in the office… emphasis on the word “some” (see above for some styles I think work in the office). If you want to wear a more casual or fashion forward shoe, I recommend pairing it with a more conservative outfit. This goes along with the “one or the other theory” (as I like to call it). You know, smoky eyes or ruby lips, a little cleavage or a little leg, bold earrings or a statement necklace.

I have two tips to keep in mind when looking for an office-appropriate espadrille. 1. Think about the height and platform on the ball of the foot. A huge platform makes for a really high – and often really clunky shoe. Cute with jeans? Yes. Cute for the office? Maybe not so much. 2. Think about where you’re wearing your espadrilles. You’re going to work, not the beach (sadly), so don’t go for a style that’s too much of a sandal.
