How to Style Rothy’s for the Office (and beyond)

It is a question that I get frequently?  How do you style your Rothy’s for work? I don’t wear them everyday – and I am more likely to wear them traveling than to the office – but Rothy’s can easily be incorporated in a business casual work place.  I have also worn them with a suit … it just isn’t my norm (see pictures in the gallery at the end for at least one example).  To help you with style ideas, I picked one color currently available from each style (round, point and loafer) and created two workplace appropriate looks.  At the end of the post you will also find a full gallery of all my Rothy’s looks.  Some are work appropriate and some are weekend only – choose which works for you!  Either way there are tons of ways to wear Rothy’s!  Want your own pair?  Scroll down to the end of the post to see how you can win a $200 voucher!!  #MarchGiveaway

Styling the Round

For the round I had to pick the blue spotted leopard.  I’m sorry but they are just too cool!!  If they were available in the point I would own them a minute.  #MakeThatASecond

For styling I opted to include one of Springs hottest colors – Marigold!  You are going to be seeing lots of this color!!  Choose either the pricier Veronica Beard blazer or the more budget friendly Topshop one!  #BothWork

Veronica Beard Blazer | Rails Pants | Joie Shell | Bow Tote | Rothy’s

Topshop Blazer | Topshop Pants | Polka Dot Shell | Cross body Clutch | Rothy’s

Styling the Point

The point is my favorite.  I currently own seven? pairs of Rothy’s shoes and four of them are points.  I have them in TTS as well as a half size up and I’m on the fence about which I prefer – sizing can vary by color.  I have neon camo, black cap toe, marigold and black and white python. but I’ve had my eye on these persimmon ones since last fall so they may be a Spring add to my collection!!  #AlwaysAdding

Hello, pretty Persimmon. 🧡👋🏽

For styling I opted for a contrasting blue/green hue which really lets the orange color pop!!  Again choose the investment Reiss and Alice + Olivia option or go with the more budget friendly Halogen pick.  I also love these floral pants which coordinate perfectly!!  #AllWins

Topshop Clutch | Halogen Pants | Halogen Blouse | Rothy’s

Styling Loafers

Until I tried the sneakers the loafers were my second favorite profile.  I don’t wear them to the office as I find them too casual for my workplace but I do wear them tons on the weekend and for travel.  If I worked in a less conservative world though, below is how I would style the Red Camo Loafer to go to work!

I love the camo mixed with stripes (you saw similar on Tuesday with my sneaker looks).  Whether it is a body-hugging dress or a button down blouse, both work!!  #MoreStripesPlease

Topshop Blazer | Statement Necklace | Rothy’s | Stripe Dress

Stripe Blouse | Rothy’s | Marc Jacobs Purse | Wide Leg Pants (I just added these fabulous pants to my closet so look for even more styling ideas soon!!)

Rothy’s Sneakers Styled

For ideas on how to style the sneakers see my most recent Rothy’s review.  I won’t wear these to the office but they have weekends and travel days written all over them and the review has a two more looks for styling ideas.  #StillWearingStripes

    Awesome styling – they look so comfortable but I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. I think I would have to go for a pair of pointed toe flats but not sure what color yet.

      The color is always the hardest selection! There isn’t a bad choice!!

    I’d love to wear the round toe or sneakers. Can’t figure out which to get first!

    I would purchase the Loafer in Dark Red. I already have black, white, cream, navy blah blah, so time to kick it up with color!

    Your blog is amazing. You can tell how much love and effort you put into creating a great page! Out of all the styles, I like the Rothy’s Spotted Leopard the best. Following on IG and FB.

    I would love to own the ivory snake loafers. They are the perfect blend of casual, dressy and professional!!! I have been eyeing rothys for a while and just haven’t pulled the trigger because of price, but they are beautiful!

      Ooh. I don’t know if I’ve seen the ivory snake ones … perfectly neutral!!!

    I thought I wanted red points. Now you’ve got me thinking why not persimmon?? 😍

    I want all the loafers! The problem will be choosing a favorite. Mocha Spot, maybe?

      All the loafers would make a fabulous collection!!

    I follow on FB and Insta and here! I would probably try the loafer – I really like the red pair above and how you have styled them! I own the points and rounds and I tried the sneakers but they did not fit me well and were pretty uncomfortable. I do have the persimmon points and while it is slightly less saturated then I expected, they are a beautiful color. I found them to fit a little big compared to other points (I sized up half size in points except for these, I got my normal size).

      Red is always a win!! And thanks for the persimmon insight. I always debate if I should size up or not with the points after I discovered color matters!!

    Sure the practical option is black sneakers BUT is there anything more apt than the marigold point for spring?! 🙈💛🙋🏽‍♀️ #myheartisset

      My marigolds are my most worn!!! Good choice!!
