Styling Your Flats for Work

Styling Your Flats for Work

Are you searching for a stylish but comfortable choice for office-friendly footwear? Whether you work in a business-formal or business-casual environment, you want your professional outfits to express your style tastefully and on-trend. But no matter how stunning they look with your slacks, suits, sweaters and dresses, heels aren't always the best choice for everyday office wear.

When it comes to fashionable, feminine shoes that flatter your professional attire, you do have another option — flats. Simple and subtle but stylish, flats offer comfort, functionality and fashion flexibility. Looking for advice on wearing flats at work? Here are some style tips we think will come in handy.

Experimenting With Flats Styles

Flats may seem simple, but they come in so many styles. You can choose from delicate ballet flats and sleek smoking slippers, sophisticated loafers and flat closed-back clogs, classy mules and more. Before you settle on the most basic pair, we recommend experimenting with all the different flat styles available — so you can see what works with your wardrobe.

Do you have a more feminine fashion style and wear dresses or pretty blouses to work? Ballet flats might suit you best. If you like to keep your outfits strictly business, loafers and mules might send a more serious message, while smoking slippers fall somewhere in between. Find a few different pairs that speak to your sense of style and try pairing them with your favorite professional outfits.


Socks or Stockings? Stylish Flats for Work

When it comes to the logistics of sporting flats, should you wear socks? We say no. With most flat styles, socks can be bulky and get in the way — plus, these shoes look more stylish and sleek when you show a little skin. If you need to stay warm or stay modest, choose opaque stockings for a fresh look instead.

Comfy Work Outfits You Can Wear With Flats

Wondering what work looks will go best with your flat footwear? Here are a few favorite outfits we love for comfort and complementing flats:


  • Slim trousers and blouse: Flats can elongate your legs and flatter your figure by showing some ankle and making your silhouette sleek. Try pairing your flats with slim-fitting work pants or cropped pants and a professional blouse. It's comfortable and professional — all in one.
  • Professional dresses: If you have office-appropriate dresses you love to wear to work, they pair beautifully with flats for a subtle, sweet and sophisticated vibe. Don't forget your stockings if the weather is cold.
  • Collared shirts and skirts: Flats look especially trendy with a preppy style. Try wearing them with a collared shirt or sweater and a knee-length skirt for a collegiate look.
