Shoes are arguably the most important component of work attire. They add style, but they also make it possible for you to move about your day and complete the tasks required by your job. Over the years, I've seen more discussions about shoes than anything else: team flats vs. team heels. The good news is that the same shoe you're digging can usually be found in multiple formats. My mules, for example, come as flats and pumps, see below. Or the red flats in yesterday's post could be swapped to red heels instead. It's one of the easiest things to switch in an outfit - and it may even make sense to stock your closet (or desk) with both. Would you wear today's look? Are you team flats, team heels, or both?
