Heels are part of many work ensembles, however; usually more conservative styles such as closed toe ones in neutral colors play key roles in completely a work look. As much as I enjoy wearing neutrals, a pop of color, especially in the workplace, brings a little pep to your step, literally and figuratively. These turquoise lace up heels are a fun and a bold statement, so the key to making them professional are pairing the heels with traditional work pieces with unexpected details. For example, the dress pants are in a teal hue that picks up the green and blue tones in the shoes, while the blouse is completely buttoned up, but has the sleeves rolled and embellishment on the collar. Both of these details, along with a silver watch and bangle set, look modern, yet appropriate for any work environment.
