What We're Wearing At Jones Head Office

At Jones, we write, think, style, and wear shoes all day, every day. So it’s no surprise that sometimes a pair of Chelsea boots or Oxford brogues will fall across our desks that we simply can’t resist. Around the office there are lots of familiar styles to see from the season collection. From white leather trainers paired with power suit blazers to cashmere jumpers partnered with classic wing tips.

Like a lot of offices across the U.K., our work environment is now hybrid. We’ve adopted business-casual attire to go along with the new work-from-home/in-office split. In this hybrid world, the consensus among us seems to be that almost any style of shoe can be office appropriate, depending on a few prerequisites. 

Cut and construction are two defining factors for these office staples, with leather being the favoured material. Sleek and durable, leather shoes can handle consistent wear throughout the working week and, with a little maintenance, still look as smart as the day they were first unboxed, even after months of wear.

Another defining characteristic of these styles is their versatility. The same shoes that carry us through a day at the office, can work just as well for evening events and casual weekends. Equally, these office favourites transform even our most relaxed jeans into business ready attire. 

We tend to stick to one or two reliable pairs of shoes in black, tan, and white colourways to see us through the seasons. Constructing our office ensembles from the ground up, our footwear tends to stay the same while the cuts, colours, fabrics, and textures of our clothes are in constant rotation. 

Footwear choice can make a big impression around the office. If you’re looking for a glossy new pair of shoes for work that will spruce up your workwear rotations – here are the shoes that have made big impressions on us. So big we had to bag them for ourselves.

I love my Clemenzia boots because I can walk around in them all day in comfort. They work well with dresses and skirts, as well as trousers. I was worried the light colour might start to look dirty, but I sprayed them with protector before my first wear. Now if they get a mark, I give them a quick buff with a nubuck brush, and they come out looking like new!

I'm a dancer and I always struggle to zip up regular sized tall boots. So, I was excited for the new Tailor Made boots range, they come in a range of calf widths, including large. Now I've got a fab new pair of riding boots that are not only properly knee-high in length; I can zip them up! I'm enjoying wearing them with knee length skirts and dresses.

Donella dresses my jeans up for work with ease! Full leather plus an inside zip equals comfortable, easy-to-wear lace-up boots. I love the medium heel height, and the neutral sand colour means that I can wear them with any colour. People always comment on Donella when I wear them.

Hummingbird are my go-to office footwear choice. I commute into the office and find these so comfortable even as I’m on my feet at the bus stop or on the station platform. These loafers were a bit of an investment piece for me, and it’s been so worth it. They look so good even after months of wear.

I have Hummingbird in black, and they go with all my dresses, skirts, jeans, trousers - you name it. I’ve been wearing them with tights or slouchy ankle socks during the colder months; I’m looking forward to brighter skies and longer days when I can style them without either for a clean-cut look.

Amira leather trainers are my wardrobe multi-tasker! The platform makes them dressy enough to wear to work in the day and to take them out on an evening too. The white leather is perfect for wearing with jeans or bright coloured trouser suits. I love the quilted leather as I think it adds a touch of interest to my looks, and the quality of the leather itself is exceptional.

 I like my Matthew Oxford shoes because they keep me looking smart throughout the working week. I’ve been impressed with the quality of leather, and they haven’t worn down at all after four months of wear! They match very well with a white shirt, blue chinos, and brown belt.

Cannon Street is my top-choice for office footwear right now. I have them in dark brown and they look good with navy trousers. They’re leather lined, which makes them super comfortable. I can wear them all day long – from morning board meetings right through to evening events. Everyone needs at least one pair of tasselled loafers in their life!

I’m wearing the Bushwick leather wing-tipped brogues around the office. These shoes can be worn with chinos for a mix of casual and traditional style, but my favourite way to wear these brogues is with a nice three-piece men’s suit.
