Guaranteed to make you strut through the office

Struggling to find the right shoes for work? With the UK’s weather usually a bit too bleak for year-round sandal appreciation (it rains 156 days a year on average), it’s probably best to go for a pair of boots. Amp up your style with our edit of the best boots for the office, featuring picks from Jimmy Choo, Chanel and Chloé.

Which boots can you wear to the office?

Now you can’t just show up to work in any old pair of boots. There’s an unspoken dress code when it comes to office footwear, but British shoe retailer Clarks suggests that some of the things to consider include:

  • Neutral colours – think black or brown, but depending on your workspace you could wear brighter colours
  • Material – leather and suede are the go-to materials for boots, and are typically considered the smartest
  • A pointed toe – go for a pointed or almond toe if you’re after a more sophisticates style, as this will help extend the leg
  • Heels – if your office is more casual you can opt for a chunkier heel, but formal officewear will usually call for a slimmer heel

Before you buy, see if there’s anything at home first. Re-wearing old clothes is the best way to be sustainable, but if you can’t avoid it then try to shop consciously at responsible retailers, as well as rental and resale sites.
