I have a meeting today and I was trying to work out what shoes to wear. I want something smart and flat that I can walk to the meeting in. I could go for little black shoes but I think that’s a bit boring. Meetings mean you have to be smart but they don’t mean you have to whip away all your personality in favour of something that looks presentable.
Here’s a small list of shoes for meetings that are still just as exciting as your day-t0-day wear.
The little leopard print shoes are by Clarks and are just £39.99. These sorts of shoes are a great staple for any wardrobe. Perhaps not suitable for the wet weather but they’d look great with some dark ankle-grazer jeans and a brown belt.
Next we have Dr Martens shoes. These still have an air of punk about them but you could get away with wearing them as normal brogues.
Another simple pair of black shoes, which are very useful when going to meetings. These are a bit different in the fact that they have the embellishment on the front and that cool patent toe. They are the Debera shoes from Friis & Company.
The wedge loafer/creeper hybrid from Stephane Gontard is an unusual shoe that reminds me of those chunky school shoes we had to wear. They are simple enough to pass as a good work shoe but the platform gives them that edge.
More leopard print. It’s a staple of my wardrobe. I love the small heel on these shoes. Again, they’d look great with slim, dark jeans or chinos. Perhaps paired with a black blazer with a bit of leopard accenting. (I have a Primark blazer that would go perfectly with these.) They are £113 by Fericelli and I think I’m in love.
Finally, a bit of glitter. These are definitely shoes for meetings. They need to be left to steal the show so wear with a simple black trouser or skirt with a white shirt. These might not be everyone’s cup of tea but they are smart and will certainly have people talking. £119 by RAS.
