Searching for the ultimate pair of stylish shoes is a fashion conundrum every career woman has faced. Each pair needs to tick a number of boxes including appearing effortlessly chic, matching your corporate outfit and comfortable enough to keep you on your feet all day. Whether you’re doing the coffee run in sky-high stilettos or walking in comfortable, but tasteless, flats. RP Skirts is setting things straight with our top five work shoes of the year. Not only are each pair comfortable and affordable, they’ll also make even the strictest fashionista smile.
Supine, $129.95 from Nine West
Nine West’s classic, point-toe flat with a D’Orsay silhouette gleams with elegance. The sophisticated cut-out differentiates this flat from a regular slip-on sandal, while the padded footbed means comfort will be your best friend.
Tweed High Heel Court Shoes, $79.95 from Zara
Tweed is most often associated with fashion icon Chanel, so this is the perfect opportunity to bring a bit of Coco power into the office via your feet. These heels are a flattering shape, have a supportive short heel and are heaven to the eyes.
Heera Black Stretch Knit High Heel Ankle Boot, $229.95 from Wittner
Every woman needs a quality pair of reliable black heels in their wardrobe. They go with everything, from tailored pants to a stylish RP Skirt.

Flat Patent Finished Shoes with Metal Band, $59.95 from Zara
Comfortable? Check. Affordable? Check. Trendy? Absolutely. These patent finish Zara shoes elevate every outfit to the next level. The timeless colour means this pair has a long life-span in a world of fast-moving trends and changing fashion seasons, and can be paired with any pattern, print or shade.
Daviti Red Suede Pointed-Toe Slingback Mid Heel, $169.95 from Wittner
It’s time to steer away from those darker shades with a contemporary pop of red. An all-black power suit paired with a neutral Georgette blouse needs to be shaken up with some pizzazz, and these red pumps are the perfect addition. Wittner’s Daviti heels will take you from the office to the bar, all in comfort and style.
Say ciao to unstable stilettos, blisters and tasteless flats. These shoes will slide effortlessly into your corporate wardrobe. You can enjoy those after-five cocktails, without aching feet, with slingback mid heels or stretch knit ankle boots. Salute to comfortable, fashionable shoes!
