The Hunt: Stylish Skin Tone Pumps for Work

collage of skin-tone pumps for work

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

Ah, springtime — as we all get ready to pull out our spring-y whites and pastels, it’s time for our annual roundup of nude heels for work. I’m pleased to report that the selection of stylish skin tone pumps in 2019 is vastly improved from what it was even five years ago — there are a TON of brands really focusing on offering skin tone shoes for everyone, including Target, Naturalizer, Louboutin, Rebecca Allen, Nubian Skin, and House No. 3028. Of course, it should be noted, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a shade that doesn’t match your skin tone if you just happen to like the particular shade. Readers, what are your thoughts — are you on the hunt for stylish skin tone pumps for work right now, or do you have a favorite from previous years? (Does anyone have thoughts on pantyhose and skin tone pumps?)


Target’s line, A New Day, offers an impressive six shades of nude — huzzah! (Other brands that are focusing on offering a wide range of skin tones include Naturalizer, Louboutin, Rebecca Allen, and Nubian Skin.) The pictured shoes are the color “Cocoa” and are $ 29.99, available in regular and wide widths sizes 5-12. 


I love the little details here — particularly the asymmetric cap toe, which adds not only a dose of style but also makes me think the shoe might last a bit longer. I also love the cone heel, which feels a bit avant-garde — and a low heel never hurts. (We’ve rounded up other low heels in the bulleted list at top; there’s also this lovely d’Orsay option from Sole Society for $ 60.) The pictured shoe is on sale for $ 70.


Not only is Banana Republic offering a TON of skin tone shades this season, they’re also promising 18 hours of comfort. Nice! (Shades offered include deep brown suede, chestnut brown suede, biscotti suede, beige leather, and cool beige patent.) It’s great to see that they come in slightly extended sizes (5-12), and, being Banana Republic, there’s sure to be a 40% or 50% off sale soon. The shoe is $ 118 full price. 


Know your office before trying the transparent trend! It is no longer just a budget option and can be found in the splurge end of shoes — so if you work in a creative, casual office, this shoe might be appropriate. But again, know your office before trying this 4″ heel from Schutz, on sale at Nordstrom for $ 116. They also have a neon option that’s kind of awesome, as well as a lower version of the beige/transparent pump. 


Boden always has darling shoes, and these are no different if this shade of pinky beige is calling your name. I like the racing stripe detail on the heel of the shoe, and I always like a little bit of a strap. These are $ 180-$ 190 and come in other colors, including a very happy yellow.


I don’t think we’ve yet discussed MM.LaFleur’s new line of shoes — what say you, ladies? I know some people were disappointed that the shoes came at such a high price point (these pumps are $ 365), but that feels right to me — in line with Stuart Weitzman, Sarah Jane Parker, and Cole Haan prices, yet lower than Sarah Flint and other designer-y options like Choo and Manolo. 

Some other fun ones we found, pictured at the very top and here:

top row: dark brown / pointy-toed pink block heel / beige pointy-toed stiletto / pink Mary Jane heels
row two: round-toe block heel / pointy-toe mocha block heel
row three: caramel stiletto / beige stilettos / caramel block heel / transparent stiletto

The Hunt: Stylish High-Heeled Boots for Work

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

There have been so many boot styles lately that it kind of makes one’s head spin — block heel boots! sock boots! shooties! lace-up boots! Chelsea boots! Western style boots! — so we haven’t gone on a Hunt for a while for boots. Still, there are a ton of these very sleek, professional-looking stiletto booties right now — so let’s take a look at what’s out there on the market.  (Looking for flat ankle boots for work? Just a few months ago we did a roundup of flat and low-heeled options…) 

Stylish High-Heeled Boots under $  50

This one isn’t the sleekest, but it is $ 15, and still available in a ton of sizes 8-13 (with wide sizes also!) — that’s kind of hard to beat. (Amazon has a bunch of smaller sizes for $ 39 and Prime.) Readers have LOVED the DexFlex Comfort line in the past. 

Stylish High-Heeled Boots with Comfort

If you’re looking for a reliable brand for comfort, it’s hard to go wrong with Clarks — these heeled booties have a bunch of solid reviews at Zappos, and are marked 50% off (down to $ 60 today!). They’re available in sizes 5-11. Nordstrom has a very similar style for $ 139, but with a zipper. 

Stylish High-Heeled Boots for Work with Kitten Heels

Sam Edelman doesn’t market itself as a comfort brand, but their soles are usually packed with comfort features — and these kitten-heeled booties (above) look great to wear with tights and trousers. Note that this one comes in a ton of colors — if you’re on the hunt for white, red, or gold leather booties, this may be the solution you’re looking for. Note that Amazon has even more colors (leopard! shiny silver!) and some colors and sizes are Prime Wardrobe eligible and as low as $ 51.

Sudini has long been one of my favorite brands for comfortable kicks in sleek packages — these pointy-toed booties with kitten heels look fabulous. They’re only $ 159 and available in black and cognac suede, sizes 6-11, in medium and wide sizes. 

If you’re going for a very sleek look, these DvF stilettos are well-rated, with some colors and sizes on sale for $ 240 (down from $ 348). These also come in a variety of colors, including cherry patent, silver, and ivory leather — the vertical details really look fabulous on the ivory pair if you’re on the hunt. Unfortunately the matte black (pictured here) seems to just have lucky sizes left.

Readers have ALWAYS sung the praises of Aquatalia — particularly for waterproof boots — and these pointy-toed styles are a polished and sophisticated way to keep your feet warm and dry. Zappos has the black matte pair for $ 237.50 (50% off!), while Nordstrom has the black patent still full price at $ 475.

Stylish Updates for Your Basement Ceiling

Drop ceilings have been the mainstay of basement ceiling treatments for decades but they don’t have to be plain or boring. A wood-look plank ceiling is a great choice, adding visual interest and style to the space. If you already have a 15/16 inch drop ceiling in place, Armstrong offers WoodHaven planks with Easy Up clips so you can quickly install the planks right over your existing grid! If your ceiling is unfinished, boards can be installed using furring strips on the joists or use the Easy Up track and clip system to maximize ceiling height.

For a pulled together look, install WoodHaven planks directly onto your wall to create wainscotting or an accent wall that matches your basement ceiling!

While white may help brighten up a dark basement, combining a natural wood color like WoodHaven’s Bamboo with rich, natural colors and great lighting creates a cozy and welcoming feel!

For a more dramatic, traditional look, combine stone veneer walls with metallic ceiling panels. Metallaire panels, like the ones shown here, can be installed into your existing 15/16 drop ceiling grid as well! – Armstrong Ceilings, www.ceilings.com/canada
