Shoes that add interest to a work outfit are always on my radar. However I realise that I tend to feature the more unusual and quirky styles that I come across as rightly or wrongly – I thought that it was *easy* to find classic timeless styles but realise that this is often not the case! So I’ll be making sure that I throw in more Corporate classic shoes into the mix – and the variety that are as office-appropriate as they are so stylish that you will want to wear them in your play-time too!
Meet the Carla round toe pump by Salvatore Ferragamo. This style is available online but if these are your first Ferragamos, I recommend popping into one of the luxury brand’s boutiques if you can to ensure that you are properly fitted as the beauty of the offering is that they come in different widths, catering to narrow and wide feet alike.
This shoe has a classic shoe shape, grosgrain ribbon detail and comes in timeless black, beige and navy. It’s a preppy style that works well with classic trouser and skirt suits or your staple little black dress.
Retailing around $700, depending on the exchange rate and retailer, the Salvatore Ferragamo Carla round toe pump is the kind of investment shoe that elevates any look – like the one above featuring a mix of high street brands. The style is available online at these stores:
- Nordstrom (who also stock the sturdier heeled “Ninna 85” style)
- Neiman Marcus
- Saks Fifth Avenue
