Steo Out in Style

Shoe styles that work well at the office and in the business world at large include pumps and sling backs. Choose basic colors including black, beige, navy, and brown, but don't be afraid to wear shoes with color. A red shoe will go great with most dark outfits just be sure to choose simpler shoe styles when going for bright colors.

Unless you are tall and thin, avoid very long witch-style toe shoes. They are trendy and not flattering to most average-built women.

Unless it is casual dress day never wear tennis or athletic shoes, clogs, sandles, flip-flops, "Eskimo" style boots, or slippers to the office. Never.

If you want people to take you seriously, avoid wearing high stiletto heels, sexy boots, and shoes with straps that wrap the ankle. Always opt for close-toed shoes over open-toed shoes when the business occasion is formal or when making the right professional impression counts.
