The best Russell & Bromley shoes to wear when working from home

When no one can see below your waist on the office conference call, what should you wear on your feet? Slippers for comfort, or motivating flats?

We may have only been confined to our houses for 24 hours, but most of us have already been self-isolating for a little while longer. And in the days working from home, it has become apparent that even if we manage to get dressed (some only from the waist up for a work conference call) office appropriate shoes have become an optional extra.

High heels are a definite no when working from home, and as no outside elements need to be battled, chunky boots are also not required. So, it seems the flat has yet again come into its own. Slowly becoming a firm friend for every moment of life, the comfy and practical (not always a complement to shoes, but this time it is) flat is the only sensible option to select.

But whether to go for slippers or loafers, trainers or slides, ballet flat or mule, is up to you. True comfort can be found in the sheepskin lining of a slipper but putting a (real) shoe on might help productivity. Decisions, decisions.

Here’s our pick of the best shoes to wear when working from home.

Russell & Bromley

A great investment, not just for working from home, but also post coronavirus life, these investment flats are a go-with-everything classic.

In the Pink at Aintree

Most gentlemen will opt for a black, navy or grey suit. Set yourself apart from this safe option; get in the pink and show off your rosy dapper style.

Robert Simon’s (available via Alvin Lee) pale pink two piece suit in windowpane check comes with contrasting blue pattern on the lining and under the collar. The pull out pocket square (also in the blue pattern) ensures you won’t lose it. Price £159.

Surprisingly pink goes with many colours. For high colour contrast, wear with a black shirt as shown in the image but equally it will go well with khaki, sage green, navy and many shades of brown from light tan to dark chocolate.

For a softer look, pair with light to dark greys, light to mid blues, another shade of pink or the conventional crisp white shirt.

Here we’ve chosen Remus Uomo navy and white floral tapered fit shirt with cutaway collar. Price £59.95.

The tie is not obligatory for Aintree but most men do don one. In addition, if you are planning to enter the Style Awards, the judges are searching for a complete look, which means a tie. Remus Uomo pure silk narrow tie in navy with subtle geometric design. Price £28.

Accessories are key to complete your stunning outfit.

Time to flash your urban style with Versus Vesace Aberdeen ext watch in slate grey available from Watch Shop. Price £220.

Bring your own good luck for the bets and winning that Style Award prize with The Great Frog London sterling silver Horseshoe ring, £210. Handmade in Soho, London.

Look through rose coloured lenses and enjoy your day at the races. In black titanium with pink lenses, Projekt Produkt GE-CC4 sunglasses add a modern and minimalistic touch. Price £230.

Available from Eyeconomy club.

Opt for the more continental look and slip- on a loafer style shoe. Russell & Bromley’s Pluto Slip-on is part of Russell and Bromley’s collaboration with luxury designer Moreschi. Constructed by hand in Vigevano, Italy with specially selected navy chevron printed calf leather. Adorned with gunmetal snaffle trim. Go without socks – if the ladies can brave whatever the weather without tights then you can go without socks! Price £395.

The sartorial rule is always match your belt colour with your shoes. So for navy shoes go for a navy belt. The gunmetal buckle on Russell & Bromley’s Twister woven belt also matches the snaffle on the slip-on. Double dapper tick! Price £125.

Zara Tindall’s Russell & Bromley bag is royally chic

On Friday, the stunning Zara Tindall looked incredible as she headed to the Cheltenham Festival Trials, wearing a brand new, navy blue outfit. The Queen’s granddaughter donned a blue, belted coat by Reiss, a simple dress, knee-high Stuart Weitzman boots, a stunning navy blue quilted bag with a fancy chain strap by Russell & Bromley, and a gorgeous grey hat with a navy blue trim. With her trademark blonde hair in a sleek and straight style, the mother-of-two also blinged up with a pair of Calleija earrings. How gorgeous? Sadly, all Zara’s items are past-season buys, but we’ve found some great alternatives, so keep scrolling.

Russell & Bromley is a brand that’s certainly on the royal radar.

Back in October, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Pakistan for the royal tour and Kate’s outfit choices were a huge hit – especially when she ditched her fave nude heels for a pair of low flats by Russell & Bromley Outlet.

They were the ‘Xpresso Blush Suede Crossover Flats, costing £185 and yep, you guessed it, they immediately sold out.

Reiss is a brand loved by the royals too – from Kate to Meghan!

Earlier this month, the Duchess of Sussex headed to Canada House with husband Prince Harry, wearing a satin skirt, roll neck top, Jimmy Choo high heels and a stunning camel coat from the luxury high street brand.

Known as the ‘Sabel’ coat, it actually went in the January sale for £180 and royal fans went crazy for the tailored design – it sold out immediately much to shoppers dismay. The demand was so high that a waiting list was even put in place. The coat was super luxe and was made from a luxurious wool blend. Camel coats can be worn all year round, and never date.
