Nothing beats a classy dress shoe, even for women. Brogues, oxfords, and monk strap shoes aren’t just for men, and add a dapper twist to any look; there are even platformed options or some with interesting cut-outs. Stylish, sharp, comfortable, and perfect for a long day at the office, they are a great alternative to the conventional high heel, without losing out on looking polished or professional. We like them paired with a shift dress or midi-length skirt for some refreshing contrast, but there’s also appeal in wearing your dress shoes with a sharply-tailored pair of cigarette pants or trousers. Do as these ladies do, and take some inspiration from the men.
