In the winter months it is easy to rely on smart leather boots and opaque tights as go-to workwear essentials. As temperatures rise come summer, remaining office-appropriate yet looking and feeling cool can be a harder task. Let this workwear edit help you to structure your professional wardrobe around the best summer work shoes.
For a bustling commute, look to a flat loafer. These slip-ons are effortlessly smart and can be dressed up or down to suit your schedule. Our iconic Chester loafer in tortoise patent leather is beautifully multi-tonal and works well with cropped cigarette trousers in summer neutrals, classic blacks or navy.
CHESTER Tassel Loafer
The slingback silhouette is enjoying a resurgence this season and the new Fantastic court shoe is a work appropriate way to wear the trend. Crafted in vibrant purple suede, this cheerful style will brighten up any boardroom. We recommend popping the matching clutch into your work bag as an easy way to transition from desk to aprės work drinks.
FANTASTIC Cuff Slingback
Made from rich black suede and culminating with a pointed toe, our new Throwback style is another chic way to add some drama to your working week. It looks effortless when partnered with a pair of tie-waisted trousers. We love to wear ours with an oversized tote bag, perfect for carrying all your daily essentials.
THROW BACK Flat Slingback
For workwear oozing glamour yet remaining practical, opt for a fabulous flat. A pointed toe style like Flatbug makes this shoe work-appropriate and the sprinkle of sparkling bugs becomes a talking point at the water cooler.

For important presentations and meetings sometimes subtlety is key, opt for an understated yet ultra-chic court like the low-heeled Bowline. Crafted from taupe patent leather ensures this style will remain neutral and will look great with dresses and trousers alike. Style with the matching shoulder bag for a feminine take on workwear dressing.
BOWLINE Mid Heel Bow Court
Another chic court shoe to give your wardrobe a feminine flare is Jeaniemid. Set on a petite blocked heel, this style is practical for a busy working week without negating glamour. This two-tone nappa leather shoe looks divine when partnered with a monochrome ensemble. We recommend draping a bouclé jacket over your shoulder when dashing between meetings.
JEANIEMID Toe-Cap Court
Remain cool on the hottest of days with a stylish work-appropriate sandal like Tonic. Subtle in design this style has an elasticated slingback strap for ease of wear during the most arduous of commutes. Create a sophisticated finish by teaming this pair with a statement leather luxury bag.
TONIC Mid Heel Slingback
If you prefer a more closed-in design for work, choose a peep-toe bootie like Perf-Midi. Smooth calf leather has been intricately perforated in a dotted pattern, keeping you cool whilst looking sophisticated. With a high cut and stacked heel, a style like this looks effortlessly chic when partnered with a pair of tailored cigarette trousers and your favourite blazer. We recommend adding a crossbody bag to complete the look.
