5 Looks for Female Entrepreneurs Who Don’t Want to Wear Heels
For some women, the very essence of style means to put on a little black dress and a pair of stylish pumps that go oh so delightfully with those red lips. The 21st-century dress code is somewhat redefined, however, by ladies who have expanded the meaning of style and the purpose of fashion to embrace so much more than sleek pencil skirts and tight button-downs. If you take a closer look at the modern runways as well, you’ll spot a range of daring business casual combinations that haven’t seen heels, not even a pair in a box – and yet they dazzle.
So, if you recognize yourself in the description of a contemporary, athleisure-loving, empowered gal with a goal, then you should know that fashion has brought forward a selection of several wonderful trends and wearing options precisely for your spirit. Let’s single out five of them and see how you can fit them to match your needs!
Jeans mixed with tees and ankle boots
You’ve most likely already worn such a blend without even knowing that it’s considered the latest trend in business casual, and a favorite among celebrities as well as successful entrepreneurs. Ex, Emma Moore, the founder of Fundamental, loves pairing her jeans with a blouse, which gives you a chance to stay comfortable without actually foregoing certain rules of business attire. For an even more relaxed look on a Friday afternoon, a tee will serve you as well as a blazer.
As a stylish note, SAS shoes Maddy ankle boots that match almost every weather and every office should be your casual version of the black pumps. They should be comfortable, in a neutral hue (although bold floral patterns and animal print have become very popular lately), to ease of matching!
A casual power suit – with sneaks
Flared pants, high-waisted belts, oversized and fitted jackets, all now available in a range of curious hues such as fiery red, royal blue, purple, or striped – they are the beloved power symbol of a working, successful woman, and now you can pair them with your favorite Adidas sneakers, comfortable, but perfectly prestigious as well. If the athleisure trend has taught us anything, it’s that there is no such thing as a wrong time to put on a pair of quality sneakers that love your feet.
Uncertain how and if you should attempt this daring pair? Well, a single glance at how Kate Moss and Rihanna have done it, and you’ll rush for your wardrobe to see what you can cook up from your own shelves. It only takes a bit of imagination and your fashion instinct will not fail you!
Maxi skirts paired with flat footwear
Long summer days at the office, hopping from one meeting to another, setting up workshops in rooms filled with people – it can take a toll on your creativity. This is where the timeless floor-long maxi skirt will save you the trouble of changing several times a day, offering you an endless list of dressing options that will have you ordering yet another maxi skirt for your wardrobe.
Fortunately, these wonderful pieces of clothing go brilliantly well with flats, from sandals, slip-ons, espadrilles, to ballet flats, so you can mix and match depending on the weather, as well as the occasion. When you wish to create a slightly more elegant note, you can wear a blouse and a piece of jewelry for a little glitz, while a button-down also works wonderfully with such a skirt.
Leather goes with anything
Leather jackets have already infiltrated business dress codes all over the globe. They are your jeans’ favorite top, your sneakers’ best friends, and your button down’s perfect fit. Leather jackets, however glamorous and rebellious they may be, are not the only piece of leather garments that are worthy of any lady entrepreneur’s attention. Enter: the comfortable, classy loafer.
With a sophisticated buckle on the front, and some texture, wearing a pair of Gucci leather loafers feels like walking on air. Their secret? They go with anything, everything, and then some. No matter what you choose to put on for the day, they will not disappoint with their impeccable ability to blend in and keep you comfy all day long.
Style up your hoodie
Finally, the crown jewel of the business casual dress code of our time: your baggy, comfortable hoodie. The most unexpected one on the list, and still mostly unrecognized as a valid office option for the most courageous of women entrepreneurs who want to unleash their inner fashionistas. It’s true that the hoodie is today often paired with heels, but rest assured that you’ll have a match made in heaven with white sneakers, as well as ankle boots with this particular garment.
In essence, heels may be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe, but they are not the only or the most stunning accessory for your feet. Use these tips to diversify your wardrobe for a more casual feel, and enjoy your entrepreneurial journey in style!
