Shoesday: Kate Spade New York Shoes

Today’s Shoesday is for the creative, arty-farty type who likes novelty and wearing fun things to work. In other words today’s shoe is for ME!

Kate Spade is known for her pitch-perfect preppy lines of clothing and homewares but golly does the American house do irreverent well as shown by these shoes from the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection:

The style: Inspired by New York City, the Kate Spade New York Autumn/Winter 2013 range of shoes are as maddeningly wonderful as their Big Apple home! If you’re a creative type, bring your quirky self to work with the yellow taxi, gooey doughnut or shiny pretzel designs.

Why these shoes are business chic:

  • Look these shoes might not be business chic if you work in a conservative office among the fun police. However, if have a pair of wide-leg man-style pants – these will be so much fun to see peeking from underneath the cuff. So much fun!

How to wear it: As mentioned, if client-facing, these shoes would be very fun seen peeking from underneath a pair of work pants. Or if you’re having a day in the office, try wearing with a simple little black dress and potentially a cardigan and belt~ perfection!

  1. It’s fun shoe for a movie date or lunch with your girlfriend. I think the type of work you do would dictate if this shoe is appropriate.
    Fashion editor – yes
    Attorney – no

  2. These are so cute and fun! I think if the rest of the outfit was quite plain and conservative these would be great as part of a work outfit. Could be a good ice breaker / conversation starter too!

  3. Those shoes are really cool. As for whether you can get away with them – well, I think you definitely can as long as you pair them with conservative dress! It will draw attention though!
