I know – this is a winter shoe from the current Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013 collection and spring is just days a way. Also admittedly Valentino are known to design more for moneyed ladies-who-glam-up and Hollywood starlets announcing their new films than for office girls and business women. But that’s no reason why we can’t bring that sort of luxury to work. Also the fashion mag’s are calling “monochrome” as the season’s hottest trend and whether you believe that or not – there’s no way that black and white will ever go out fashion; making these numbers a rather chic statement shoe investment.
Why these shoes are business chic:
Valentino designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, showed these shoes in an array of colours and with different heels. This pair featured above is the workhorse of the collection – that sturdy heel will keep you supported.
How to wear these shoes to work:
As we head into spring in the Southern Hempisphere, wear these shoes with knee-length skirts and finishing the look by layering with a 50s-styled day coat. This will allow for maximum emphasis on your shoe.
