The tree came down ages ago, the weather seems to be getting colder and we’ve all settled back into the office routine. Being back at work in the depths of winter can be a drag, but there’s a way to remedy this. A winter work shoes and style refresh is the perfect way to revive your wardrobe and your enthusiasm for these last few weeks before the spring returns, and for the many months to come.
To help you find your winter work feet, we’ve put together our new 2018 style guide, including office-perfect shoes, boots, and bags, so you can really look the business this year.
Let’s start with the work shoes
Buying a stylish new pair of work shoes is a great way to beat those winter blues and make being back at the office a little easier. Here are our top office shoes picks for the year:
Rachel Calf Boots
The winter weather looks to stick around for quite some time yet, so a warm pair of office boots is a sound investment. Introducing the Rachel leather calf boots from Gabor, the ideal back-to-work boot for keeping your feet warm, dry and incredibly comfortable all day long. The micro-fibre linings and cosy in-socks are perfect for keeping out the winter cold, while the wide fit and rubber sole give you cushioned comfort and sturdy grip on those slippery winter pavements. Add them to your winter shoe collection here.
Pearl Bow Dress Court Shoes
Add a touch of elegance to your work wardrobe with these stunning pointed courts from Gabor. The Pearl Bow court shoes will give your feet a timeless, minimal and effortlessly smart look, perfect for pairing with pencil skirts, suit trousers or even for adding a touch of class to a smart-casual jeans and shirt combo. Super-soft leather linings make the Pearl courts incredibly comfortable for all-day wear, even without socks, and the understated heel adds just the perfect amount of height for a great office wear look. They’re waiting for you here.
Amy Classic Ballet Pumps
If you’re more of a flats fan then here’s your perfect winter work shoes upgrade: the Amy classic ballet pumps. With that gorgeous bonus bow trim and glossy patent toe caps, these pumps strike the ultimate balance between office professionalism and pretty statements. Wear with tights, dresses and skirts or bare foot with suit pants for a comfortable-yet-classy office look that you can adapt for evening outfits whenever you like. Get them in your size here.
Ella Suede Court Shoes
Heighten your outfits and your mood this January with the Ella suede court shoes. These are perfect for those days in the office when you fancy adding a little extra glamour, and they’re equally great if you’re heading out straight after work and don’t fancy taking a spare pair. The streamlined design, soft black suede and practical block heel make these the perfect workwear shoes for combining comfort and elegant style. Find them in a range of classic shades here.
We know what you’re thinking; trainers, really? We’ve not lost our minds, and nor are we suggesting you stroll back into the office in trainers. But for those of you who have a lengthy commute to work, or if you’ve resolved to ditch the bus for a healthy walk to work, a new pair of sporty sneakers are a worthy investment. The Brunello trainers from Gabor are the ideal choice, with leather insoles for cushioning and comfort and a zip fastening, which makes them super easy to slip on and off during a busy commute. Add the glimmering metallic finish and classic sporty design to the mix and you’ve got yourself one fabulous pair of trainers for the New Year return to work. Grab them in your size here.
And for the finishing touch…
Now you’ve got your shoes sorted, it’s time to complete your winter work refresh with a brand new office-worthy bag and make this season a little more bearable.
Andrea Shoulder Bag
Break the black, grey and navy office wear dress code just a tiny bit this year with a pop of colour in the handbag department. This gorgeously rich wine shade on the Gabor Andrea shoulder bag is great for lifting any workwear outfit out of the January blues, and works especially well when matched with mustard yellows and bright whites. The studded tie detailing gives the design extra elegance and style, and the handy inner compartments make it the ideal bag for an organised start to the year. Grab yours here, and style it with the Rachel calf boots for a really sophisticated office ensemble.
Zoe Shoulder Bag
Looking for a bag that really means business? Here it is. The Gabor Zoe shoulder bag has room for all your office essentials with handy inner and outer zip pockets for extra storage, and the super smart navy blue leather will complement practically any workwear outfit perfectly. The subtle detailing from the Gabor-branded metal charm adds extra character, and you can convert it from shoulder to hip-length with the additional long strap for easy access on the move. We love this timeless navy shade, but keep an eye out for the white, silver and red shades also coming soon.
