Portrait of a shoemaker
You’ve probably heard it 100 times by now: If you want to make the right impression at work, you need to dress for success. But what exactly does that mean? And how are you supposed to look successful without breaking the bank? Whether you would like to make a good impression at work or at a job interview or look professional and successful for an important business meeting, your work attire - and especially your shoes - affects how others perceive you.
Keep your shoes in good condition
One of the first things to attend to regarding footwear is the condition that they're in; if they are scuffed, worn, torn or just generally looking like they've seen better days, then it may be time to retire them. If the damage is superficial and can be fixed with a quick buff or even a little polish, then do it. Immediately.
Don't be matchy-matchy
Footwear can be a real opportunity to express your personality, so don't feel like you need to always wear the predictable pair for your outfit. It's worth experimenting with mixing things up a bit, especially if you have a slightly edgier side. For example, a woman can offset a girly blouse or skirt by sporting combat boots or laid-back loafers instead of heels. A guy in a stylin' suit may switch things up a bit by pairing it with some coloful sneaks, or at least sporting some brightly colored laces in his more traditional oxfords.
