Heels have been a workwear staple since forever, but what if you can’t balance in stilettos or are looking for a comfier pair of shoes to run after the bus in? Thankfully, heels are no longer your only choice of office footwear.
Whether it’s a pair of elegant mules or girly Mary Janes, open-toed slip-ons or dazzling kitten heels, there are so many office-appropriate designs to choose from, so your feet will never have to suffer again! In fact, we found many of those at D&C (Design and Comfort).
The local brand has 29 years of experience designing shoes, which means they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to style and quality. They recently had a mini-makeover and, take it from us, it looks fab!
Not only has their logo been updated, but their newly refurbished store at #B1-13 AMK Hub (open from December 21) has also been given a millennial update with gorgeous pastel hues and indoor plants, which means… Instagram-worthy backdrops! And you heard it from us: head there from December 21 to 23 to catch special festive events happening in-store!
On top of shoes, D&C, Design & Comfort also carries bags that suit every style personality. Can’t decide which to buy? The good news is that their shoes and bags are super pocket-friendly, so you can possibly buy your favourite design in every colour to match different outfits if you wanted to.
What’s more, the shoe designs are minimalist in style but bold in colour, making it easy for you to match your shoes with any outfit. If you don’t fancy bold colours, they also have chic nudes and monochromes with pops of colour, so you can wear them way past office hours.
Besides timeless designs, D&C, Design & Comfort also offers on-trend styles like the low block heel. This easy-to-wear style means anyone can wear them throughout their rise to corporate stardom—and ultimately being a girl boss—sans the pain of balancing in sky-high stilettos.
