By now, you’re probably already trading your thick sweaters for pieces that won’t give you a heatstroke in this giant sauna that is Manila. But let’s not forget every girl’s real best friend: shoes!
This summer, you need pairs that are bright, preppy, and office-appropriate all at the same time. Here are five gorgeous pairs—one for every day of the week, of course!—that will instantly polish your summer style. Did we mention none of these are over P1600?
1. The Pointy Pump on Mondays
Start your week strong with high-heeled pointy-toe pumps to show everyone who’s boss. But instead of the classic black, white, or nude, why not go for something more appropriate for the season? A pair in millennial pink with ankle straps is just the thing you need to perk up even the craziest of Mondays.
2. The Perfect Slide on Tuesdays
A pair of versatile heeled slides is your best bet for dressing up your work wear while still looking relaxed. Go for peep-toe slides made with a padded footbed to ensure maximum comfort. Make the most of the fair weather with a light-colored faux suede upper.
3. The Comfy Block Heel on Wednesdays
What’s one shoe trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere? Block heels. They provide the added height one gets in a pair of heels sans the discomfort one endures in stilettos. Plus the fact that block heels are super easy to style, what more can a girl ask for?
4. The Sleek Slingback on Thursdays
Nothing says you mean business more than a pair of red heels. And if you’re looking for a comfier and sleeker alternative to sky-high steppers, why not try slingbacks? The classy style is the perfect finishing touch to any feminine office look—something you can take from work to play.
5. The Casual Shoe on Fridays
There’s a reason why most offices lift the dress code on Fridays: After a tiring work week, everyone deserves a more relaxed entry into the weekend. Redefine effortless chic and give your soles a break while you’re at it with a pair of mules. The best part? A pair looks great with your office trousers, and it’s even better with jeans. Definitely a win-win.
