5 Brands Offering Stylish Vegan Shoes for the Office

stylish vegan shoes for the office“Stylish” might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of vegan footwear, but in 2017, it’s definitely possible to find stylish vegan shoes for the office — in all sorts of styles, from pumps to boots to flats.

Reader L recently asked:

Are there any non-leather, stylish and well-wearing shoes out there? I’m a vegetarian and don’t buy leather, but all the man-made or vegan shoes I buy either don’t wear well (usually not longer than a season) or look like pilgrim shoes. I know there are great companies like Matt & Nat who make amazing bags, but I haven’t been able to find a well-made, vegan pump!

In our last post rounding up brands for the stylish vegan professional, we featured several vegan shoe brands, including Olsenhaus, Matt & Nat, Nicora, and Beyond Skin (along with a few vegan clothing and handbag brands), but to answer Reader L’s question today, we’re expanding on that a bit by featuring several more brands recommended by readers (and by several vegan/vegetarian friends) that are great bets for stylish vegan dress shoes. (We last did a roundup of vegan, non-leather shoes for the professional woman in 2010!) The shoes we’re featuring today are affordable, too — plenty are under $ 100. (By the way, for weekend vegan shoes: Birkenstock recently introduced a vegan collection, some of it for sale at Zappos.) Which are your favorite stylish vegan shoes for the office? What are the brands that you’ve found to wear well and really last?

Clockwise from top left: Ballerina Flats, $ 99 / Victoria, $ 59.99 (sale) / Nira, $ 79.99 (sale)

In addition to the brands below, also worth a mention is MooShoes, which has a huge selection of cruelty-free shoes, bags, etc., both online and at their stores in NYC (Lower East Side) and LA (Silver Lake); the brands they carry include Olsenhaus, Matt & Nat, Nicora, Novacas, Bhava, Ahimsa, Melissa, and Bourgeois Boheme.

Here are 5 brands offering stylish vegan shoes for the office:

The Flat, emerald, $ 125 / The Flat, Captoe Black, $ 125 / The Point, cobalt solid, $ 145

Rothys

We’ve featured Rothys a couple of times, most recently The Point, which is one of their two styles — the other is The Flat. Rothys details their mission on their website: to create a shoe “with the ease of a sneaker but with the polish of a feminine flat … with low-waste, low-impact materials, hand-assembled for high quality and durability.” The shoes are lightweight, made from recycled materials (as well as recyclable), machine washable (!), and moisture-wicking, and the knit they’re made from is “blister-free.” The Point ($ 145) and The Flat ($ 125) are available in sizes 5–12, and the site offers free shipping and free returns.

 

 

Levi, $ 79 / Nira, $ 79.99 (sale) / Victoria, $ 59.99 (sale)

Neuaura 

Neuaura, founded in 2007 by a lifelong vegetarian, makes animal-free, eco-friendly boots, flats, heels, and wedges. A portion of the proceeds from one of its factories (a sustainable operation in Southern Brazil that’s run with hydroelectric power) is donated to environmental charities, and on average, 68% of the factory’s waste is reused. Neuaura offers free shipping on all U.S. orders.

 

 

Wide Low Booties, $ 95 / Smart Courts, $ 101 / Ballerina Flats, $ 99

Will’s Vegan Shoes

Based in London and founded in 2013, Will’s Vegan Shoes & Accessories Co. sells vegan and ethically made shoes, both for women and men. On their site you’ll find flats, sandals, boots, pumps, and more, in regular, narrow, and wide widths. Sizes available are 5–11. Bonus: They offer free shipping and 365-day returns on all U.S. orders. They also make accessories — belts, wallets, briefcases, satchels, totes, and more.

 

 

Carrie, $ 195 / Tilda, $ 138 (sale) / Ana, $ 310

Bourgeois Boheme

Also based in London is Bourgeois Boheme, a vegan shoe company founded in 2005. It has a slow fashion philosophy and offers flats, heels, boots, and sandals, including some office-friendly styles, that are eco-friendly and made by “hand-picked artisans” in Portugal. The company also makes shoes for men. Bourgeois Boheme avoids using PVC, which is commonly found in vegan shoes, because of its harmful chemicals and negative environmental impact, instead using a cotton-backed microfiber polyurethane called Mycro©, plant-based polymers, and other, safer materials.

 

 

Peterson, $ 55 (sale) / Brava Encore, $ 59 / Parker, $ 69

Jambu & Co.

Founded in 2010, Jambu & Co. makes three brands, Jambu (“premium looks”), JBU (“trendy”), and JSport “sporty, casual”). As you can tell from the names, not everything made by the company is appropriate for work — most of the shoes are best for a casual or possibly business casual office, or for casual Fridays — but they’re definitely worth checking out. The shoes’ features include a contoured memory foam footbed; waterproof, water-resistant, and “water ready” classifications; and a non-marking, partially recycled rubber outsole. Some, but not all, of their offerings are vegan, and the size range is 6–11. As for production, the website makes this claim: production (in China) is “closely supervised” and the operations have “strict standards that are monitored.”

Where do you look for stylish vegan shoes for the office? Did you know that you can search both Nordstrom and Zappos for vegan shoes?

17 Stylish Laptop Bags You’ll Actually Want to Carry

Confession: Until a few months ago, I pretty much exclusively hauled around my MacBook Pro in those free canvas totes you pick up at events. Stylish laptop bags they were not, but after switching to a 15-inch screen, I suddenly found that all my “real” bags were simply too small. Fortunately, I came to my senses and realized that I carry that thing around often enough to justify a proper leather version.

Finally, I can fit all my stuff in one bag rather than constantly schlepping three around with me—and as an added bonus, my laptop feels more secure, and I feel like I have my sh*t together (well, most of the time).

Below, we’ve rounded up 17 work bags and backpacks with enough space to carry your laptop (just check the dimensions to make sure yours will fit).

Sleek and simple, just the way we like it.
Use the detachable shoulder strap for a hands-free option.
A grown-up backpack for the bike-to-work crowd (and anyone else for that matter).
Kara bags all have a secret back pocket to stash your phone and keys, which comes in super handy on the go.
This fun shearling tote is perfect for fall.
A sporty style that doesn’t scream “gym bag.”
Make like the street style set with this It tote.
Cool kid–approved.
A minimalist style that’ll go with everything.
The front pocket is super handy.
This gray-blue shade is super pretty.
Better than a basic black bag.
Yet another Mansur bag to covet.
The PVC exterior means you don’t have to stress about this bag getting dirty.
Optional monogramming and a zippered closure? Yes, please.
A canvas style is super easy to clean. Up next, five style habits that make you look professional every time.

Stylish Exterior Makeovers

Planning to update your home but not sure where to start? Our design contributors have put together  6 inspirational ideas for your exterior makeover!

Designer: Jamie Banfield >>

I chose a palette of earthy tones with a deep, rich accent color for a modern twist on a traditional color scheme. Pair this with the earthy tones of the stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in Charcoal for the perfect nature-inspired look. For the perfect finishing touch, add an outdoor chandelier that blends modern style with vintage touches.

Stone Veneer: Dry Stack in Charcoal, Fusion Stone
Colors: Pitcher Plant NPC47-3, Serenity Found NPC43-0, Boreal Forest NPC38-4, Beauti-tone
Lighting: Outdoor Oxford, Living Lighting

<< Designer: Jane Lockhart

I started with a stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Fawn. It’s a great neutral that goes with any color and the pattern reads both traditional and modern. I’ve paired it with a deep, smokey, gray-brown color. It’s a great go-to color for exterior surfaces, like garage doors, because it blends in with the stone. To finish, I chose light sconces with an elegant shape that adds sophistication.

Stone Veneer: Great Lakes in Fawn, Fusion Stone
Colors: Noguhi Walnut VF109-3, Beauti-tone
Lighting: Dakota by Feiss, Living Lighting

Designer: Jo Alcorn >>

I love a great blue on a house either as the siding, on the shutters or as the trim around the windows. A rustic orange on the front door is always a show stopper too. Mixed with a stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in the color Charcoal and a classic retro black light for a winning combo.

Stone Veneer: Dry Stack in Charcoal, Fusion Stone
Colors: Citadel Blue CC049-0, True North Strong CC100-3, India Trade CC010-4, Beauti-tone
Lighting: Outdoor Lantern by Feiss, Living Lighting

<< Designer: Negar Reihani

The combination of two blue colors is timeless and beautiful. I would add an orange door for a fun pop of color. To balance the blues, I chose a stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Brindle which adds sophistication to this look. To finish, a light fixture that is functional yet stylish with a casual, elegant look is perfect.

Stone Veneer: Great Lakes in Brindle, Fusion Stone
Colors: Citadel Blue CC049-0, True North Strong CC100-3, India Trade CC010-4, Beauti-tone
Lighting: Organique by Kichler, Living Lighting

Designer: Jacklynn Little >>

My inspiration started with the stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Raven which looks contemporary. I then selected a darker paint color for the remaining part of the exterior to balance the stone texture and give it a dramatic look. I rounded out the palette with a lighter tone for the windows and door trim and a pop of color for the front door. Finally, the light fixtures are a hint of traditional with a classic but timeless look.

Stone Veneer: Great Lakes in Raven, Fusion Stone
Colors: Coniferous CC070-3, Langdon Dove CC087-0, Portsmouth Spice CC002-3 , Beauti-tone
Lighting: Dakota by Feiss, Living Lighting

<< Designer: Kim Bartley

I think that a tonal gray paint palette is beautiful, timeless and a great choice for exteriors. I chose a stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in the color Charcoal which works well with the grays and adds modern sophistication to a home. An outdoor pendant that is both functional and stylish, helps to bring this look together.

Stone Veneer: Dry Stack in Charcoal, Fusion Stone
Colors: For Pete’s Sake LL122-3, Mouse in the House LL119-4, My Favourite Sweater CZ3-0, Beauti-tone
Lighting: Argyle by Kichler, Living Lighting

Dressing 9 to 5–What the Most Stylish Women Wear to Work: Steven Alan Creative Director Aï Bihr

When it comes to building her wardrobe, Aï Bihr certainly has a lot of options. As Steven Alan’s creative director, Bihr has a whole store’s worth of goodies right at her fingertips — and is in the enviable position of being able to actually create exactly the kind of garment she’d like to wear. And if that wasn’t enough to make you wish you were in her shoes, Bihr speaks multiple languages, has lived in Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, and New York, holds degrees in both neuroscience and pattern-making. Here, she gives us the scoop on what she wears to work.

Test Market

On a work day, I try to wear mostly Steven Alan because it’s good for me to wear what we’ve made; if we need to improve something or if something’s not working great, then I know it. I love to wear a big Steven Alan shirt — I usually get something a bit oversize. So I’ll wear a men’s extra-large reverse seam in white, with a pair of jeans we’ve made. I also have a lot of old Levi’s because I collect a lot of denim. I love a 501, but I like to buy a big men’s size and then cut the legs so they’re kind of wide and cropped. I go to a lot of vintage stores to hunt for them; when I lived in Paris I went every weekend to look at the flea markets. I’m also a big vintage eyewear collector and have really loved designing the Steven Alan Optical collection.

On my feet, I usually have sneakers or oxfords. Or like, a penny loafer. My whole team knows I’m addicted to these Japanese high tops called Shoes Like Pottery. I wear them constantly, year round. I don’t want to be boring, but I always look the same! Even if there’s a corporate event or I have to make a presentation, I always look the same. I try to stay very consistent and have been very consistent for a long time. I’ve always worn a lot of jumpsuits–whatever brand I go to, I make jumpsuits for them. They’re kind of great because they’re so versatile. You can even tie the sleeves at the waist and they make really great pants that way. I have a nice collection of vintage jumpsuits, some from the Yves Saint Laurent Safari collection, and I’ll wear those tied at the waist or zip them up and belt them. And if I’m wearing a jumpsuit like that I might add a little heeled sandal. Maryam Nassir Zadeh makes beautiful shoes. If I do go to a party and I feel like wearing something a little bit different I’ll put on sandals from Maryam. One of my best friends, Mona, designs A Détacher and she makes really beautiful skirts and dresses. I recently bought an indigo skirt/culotte thing from her. It’s the perfect length and so good for summer parties.

Dress for the Seasons

When the weather is this hot and humid, I love to wear linen and cotton poplin. We have these really great cotton poplin wide trousers from Steven Alan called the Picnic Pant. When you wear a wide-leg trouser like that, it’s nice to wear something small on top. You can’t wear something too big, or else you look like a tent. It’s also a great pant to wear with a linen T-shirt.

In the fall, I’m usually in a suit. I’ll wear a suit jacket and a pair of trousers, with a T-shirt and sneakers. I have a few different jacket styles that I really like–one is a schoolboy that’s a bit smaller; The Row makes a really nice one every year. And then I like a boyfriend notched lapel in tropical wool; it’s actually the first jacket I made for Steven Alan when I joined the company and it’s still my go-to. I also always love to have a peak lapel double-breasted blazer. I think the key to pulling off a suit is–well, first of all you just really have to find the right suit for you. But then you also have to have a more casual element in your accessories or what you’re wearing the suit with, like a T-shirt and sneakers.

Quality Control

When I’m shopping for myself, I always look at the finishing of the garment. I’m looking on the inside, not just the outside, examining the fabric, rubbing it on my neck and doing all the crazy things that designers do. You want to make sure there’s a clean finish–basically, that you don’t see all this thread wrapped around the seam–so that it doesn’t look like things are going to snag. It’s good to pay attention to these kinds of things, because they’re going to dictate the longevity of the garment. And really touch the fabric. Customers aren’t stupid, they know when they’re feeling good fabric. This is why we choose to use really good fabric at Steven Alan, because our customers are smart. They know they’re not getting garbage from us. That’s one thing I’m really proud of: There’s no room for poor quality. I’m really proud to say that more than 90 percent of the things I make are made in New York. And if it’s not made here, it’s made at the best factory in Japan.

Stayin’ Stylish… On A Budget

“I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.” — Coco Chanel

Suede suits. Lace dresses. Faux leather jackets. Old school tennis shoes. I can never keep track of what is trendy now, what used to be trendy, and furthermore, what should I spend my cash on. Just when I think I have it figured out, the silly trend changes again.

I live in Los Angeles, and yes, I fall prey to the overwhelming desire to stay stylish. Come on now, I know I’m not the only one out there who has labored in front of my closet trying to find the “perfect” combination to stay trendy, and to look, well, fantastically awesome. Let’s face it, trendy costs money… big bucks if you’re trying to keep up with the Joneses. As with everything, I argue there is a better way to stay stylish without going bankrupt.

You Look Marvelous Darling…

I sat down with celebrity stylist, Inanna Bantu, who is a part of the styling team Afropeaux and asked her how to solve this seemingly unsolvable crisis. Inanna is a style maven who has styled so many A-list stars including Tom Cruise, Betty White and Matthew Perry to name a few. She has an air about her that is infectious and makes me want to scream, “Please, come and make me marvelous!”

Shannah: Inanna, you’ve styled so many celebrities for movies, TV and print adds. Can you give me a list of your top five items that men and women should have as staple items in their wardrobe, on a non-celebrity budget?

Inanna: Yes, this is a great question. Just like building a financial foundation, having signature or staple pieces will pay you back time and time again because you can mix and match and really create your own style. Here is what I suggest:

Men:
Slim-fitting white dress shirt
Lapel accessories for blazers
Brown Monkstrap shoes
Blue Blazer, NOT navy
Colored Demin

Women:
A unique little black dress
Embellished coat
Statement heels
Investment bag
Variety of scarves from neutral to vibrant

Shannah: Great, I’m a personal fan of men’s white dress shirts. Something very timeless and classy about a man in a white shirt. Ok, so I’ve got $ 500 to spent this spring on additions to my closet. Where do I go and what am I looking for?

Inanna: Oh, good question. You can do a lot with $ 500, even less. For men and women, hit the clearance sections at Zara, H&M and discount retailers like Nordstrom Rack. I would buy statement pieces — off-the-rack clothes that fit your body well and allow you to be well-dressed.

Women spring items for less:
Neutral to vibrant scarves
Full skirts
Cut-out Tops/Dresses

Men spring items for less:
Casual pastel dress shirts
Low-top sneakers that look like, but are not from a fashion house
O ring belts and fedora hats

Shannah: Love it! I am a huge fan of Zara, but particularly like the Zara’s overseas. I think their buyers have a different knack at finding new trends. Let’s talk about how being properly styled can help you get a better job, bigger salary and get ahead. Do you have any examples of how being properly styled can result in a bigger bank account?

Inanna: I see this all the time. In fact, a high-profile client of mine needed an image makeover and we spent time recreating her look — by the time she hit the red carpet, she ended up booking a major film role due to her new look. So yes, ladies and gents, image IS everything in Hollywood… and your job market.

Shannah: Lastly, and honestly, who wouldn’t want to hire a stylist to go through their closet? I’ve always wanted someone to come in and magically wave a wand and totally change my style with the clothes I have. I’ve always heard that hiring a stylist is something that only A-listers can afford. Am I wrong?

Inanna: Yes, stylists have typically been considered a luxury; however, personal styling can be affordable, depending on your needs and wants. Often, a personal stylist charges by the hour with a minimum. This rate can vary per client. With my personal clients, I offer everything from closet overhauls, to shopping new looks to creating their signature style… even on a budget.

Shannah: I love it. So in a nutshell, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to update your look once you have your staple pieces. This can be done with a small investment and you can keep building from there. What I love even more is the importance of styling yourself even when you can’t afford to hire a stylist, because at the end of the day, being put together well leads to more money in the bank. It really is that simple.

Inanna: I couldn’t have said it better. Work with the money you have, build a piece at a time, and always leave the house believing you are red-carpet ready.
