22 Summer Work-Appropriate Shoes


With warmer temps comes the urge to break out pedicure-baring footwear on the daily. How to pull it off at work? Flip-flops are always a no, but a slew of fresh options make the grade as long as you style them right. Going for open-toe? Team it with a wide-leg silhouette to keep things balanced. Prefer a flat? Pair a closed-toe slingback with a shift dress for warm-weather polish. And possibly the most versatile option of all? Summer-ready mules rendered in light hues and luxe materials. From budget-friendly to designer, here are 22 styles guaranteed to keep your workwear looking cool.
