Wear statement heels to the office and turn the same old, same old break-room talk into something interesting. Yep, that’s right, you hard-working ladies, you. Consider using standout, show-stopping shoes to express your personal brand and spark interesting conversations, while sprucing up some of those over-worn favorites hanging in your closet.
Wearing conversation pieces on your feet is sort of like walking around like that penguin from Happy Feet. You’re feeling good, you’re looking good – and while you still fit into the mold of the group, well office, by following dress code, your unique personality still shines through. (Plus you may have the urge to tap dance a little when you’re in the elevator by yourself.)
They’ll happily (and gracefully) do most of the talking for you when all you can do is mumble and grunt at 9 a.m. because who really feels like chatting with Chatty Cathy who treats the office kitchen like social hour when you’ve barely gotten two sips of your latte and a hundred emails (all marked “important” because of course they are) waiting for you at your desk?!
Carefully selecting the perfect pair of statement shoes in outstanding color, intricate pattern or cool embellishment will add a number of new outfits to your closet without having to go shopping for new tops, bottoms or dresses. We’re sure you’ve got a handful of outfits you snag from your wardrove when you’re on auto-pilot with nothing to wear – or no time nor brain power to get creative, so we've rounded up seven styles to inspire your next pair of accent heels.
