Still thinking there are no better shoes to wear with your summer dress than sandals? Even for work?! Sorry to keep reminding you, but sandals are not work appropriate shoes. No, your bosses definitely don’t approve of sandals. But they do approve of this chic pair of summer work shoes. The mules. Yes, those sometimes ugly but always so chic shoes that all fashion editors and boss ladies wear for work this summer.
Now that you got the second pair of shoes from the summer bosses’ approved shoe list, it’s time I show you how to wear your new mules for the office like a fashionable boss lady.
Ps. If you missed the list of 3 summer work approved types of shoes, then be sure to check the list over here. Letting you know, just in case you don’t like mules yet. Although I’m pretty sure you will fall in love with mules after reading this.
HOW TO WEAR MULES FOR WORK
Don’t be surprised but I will be rather short this time. The thing is that I haven’t really worn my mules with every single possible summer work outfit yet. Well don’t blame me, the summer has only begun, and I wanted to try these mules with more casual outfits first. You know, to build my confidence in these ugly shoes before wearing them as a boss lady for work.
Because they sure are ugly. Nevertheless, they seem to go with everything. Who would thought these ugly summer shoes are so easy to style. Especially with basic outfits like dark jeans. Remember how I wore my crisp white mules with jeans for casual Friday over here? Ps. You can copy that look for work too. Just make sure you swap the white T-shirt with a white blouse, and you are good to go.
Yes, I’m showing you how to wear your mules with a tailored short dress. Well slightly longer than mine. You know, the two fingers above the knees rule. That is when you sit and walk upstairs or up to the pavement in your mules.
So, let’s chase to the point. How to wear a tailored dress with mules for work? Simply as I did! In fact, there is no big secret to pulling off this style. All you need is this simple tailored dress, a pair of simple mules (surely a slightly embellished mules like those from my summer office shoe shopping list, are an excellent choice too), and a matching blazer. If you are wearing a sleeveless dress.
Well, there are some other tips regarding the colour of the mules and the rest of your outfit, but I’m sharing them the next time when I’m wearing these same high heel close toe mules with a suit.
Besides, we still have to take a quick sneak at the EDIT – your fashion cheat sheet.

Starting with the mules since we are talking about how to style mules for office this time. As mentioned before you have seen me wearing these white mules (shop here – NOW ON SALE) several times before with chicer (over here) and more feminine (here) clothes. But not yet with my business attire.
Well, this is not my fiercest business look either, but as said I’m showing you how to wear mules with a suit the next time. I thought you would prefer to see how to style these shoes with a summer dress first. Afterall we have been waiting to wear a summer dress to work for so long this year.
SUMMER WORK DRESS
You have already seen me in this pink dress (shop similar Barbie pink tailored dress here – if you have the boss salary or here – if you are still paying off your study loan) here. By the way, do you remember how I wore a similar shift dress, only slightly more peachy, with my slipper mules? The black flat embellished mules?
Ps. Those mules are great for work too. So be sure to head on here to see that look as well. Only later, because I’m pretty sure you will love to browse through this gallery below to see more similar fitted dresses.
So the blazer. Guess what? I found many similar white blazers on sale now. Check my favourite white blazers in the gallery below. Believe me, you need one for sure. The only question here is what kind of blazer you should get. I go for single button fitted blazer that is slightly longer but not as long as the boyfriend blazer.
As it goes to the bag. I probably don’t even need to mention it. Afterall you have seen me wearing this bag so many times before. All I can say, this bag turned out to be a good business bag. I only wish it would fit my Mac too.
By the way, if you are looking for a business bag that would be big enough to live in and be fashionable at the same time, then be sure to check my Summer 2018 bag trend report over here.
MORE SHOES AND BUSINESS LOOKS
So have I convinced you to wear mules to work already? No? Don’t worry, not blaming you. I didn’t like high heel closed toe mules at first either. But I somehow started to love them. I guess it was after I wore them with my dark jeans. Ps. If not already, you must check that chic outfit now. Not only it’s classy, but it’s somehow summer work appropriate too.
Whatsoever, mules are not the only alternative to the sandals. There are still these 2 other types of shoes you can wear for work this summer. Go here to see all summer work shoes.
