Why Flats are the Perfect Match for your Corporate Wardrobe
Posted on September 29 2019
A pair of comfortable, yet stylish flats can take you from your commute to work, to a day at the office, through to happy hour drinks with friends or colleagues.
If your job requires walking meetings, long days on your feet, or long commutes, flats make a great alternative to heels. They are just as fashionable and professional, and they can also help you maintain good posture throughout the day by keeping your weight distributed evenly over the soles of your feet. This can prevent knee-pain, foot and leg pain and issues in your hips and lower back. In turn, this can increase your productivity as your comfort is one less thing to worry about.
However, you want to ensure flats are made from quality materials that will let your feet breathe, provide support and prevent blisters. Ill-fitting ballet flats can cause just as much pain as uncomfortable heels.
Louise M Shoes have designed a classic flat that will never go out of style. They are handcrafted out of Italian leather and feature cushioning inside the shoe to give you added support and comfort. They are also orthotic friendly, if you are looking for a stylish, yet practical shoe.
Most traditional corporate attire was designed to be worn with heels, so it is important to keep in mind that if you are wearing a skirt or dress, hemlines that fall just above the knee are the most flattering. This is because it will elongate your leg line. When it comes to wearing pants, they should be tailored to sit just above the ankle bone. You do not want them to cover your shoes or drag along the floor.
Our flats are worn by women from an array of professions such as lawyers, teachers, doctors, cafe owners, accountants, personal assistants, office managers, flight attendants, and podiatrists. However, they are not just great for wearing around the office, these shoes can be paired with almost any outfit. For example, they look great with jeans for a more casual weekend look.
They are also a perfect shoe for travel – from being in the airport and on the plane, to navigating your way through uneven cobble-stoned streets. They can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Investing in a great pair of versatile shoes also means you can save on suitcase space, so you can do more shopping while you are away.
If you prefer a shoe with a small heel, the Louise M low heel court could be the shoe match for you. It features a 3cm stacked heel to create stability and a little bit of extra width across your foot for added comfort. The soft Italian leather ensures the shoe is breathable and prevents you from getting blisters. The added cushioning inside the shoe provides comfort so you can be on your feet all day without experiencing significant foot pain.
