When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. Erlanger is also the official ARMI Captain at the luxury rental and styling platform Armarium. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

If you’ve ever worked in a fast-paced environment, you’re probably familiar with the constant errands that come with busy careers in many industries. In my line of work, I have days where I’m constantly running around NYC being on my feet all day. As a stylist, I obviously love wearing heels, however, this is simply not a possibility when it comes to the crazy days where I’ll never be off my feet. For any fashion girl who is in need of a pair of stylish and practical shoes to get them through their crazy workday, I’ve decided to divulge my favorite pair of shoes to survive the insanely busy days running around NYC.

My secret to surviving those days while looking stylish: Gucci loafers and slides. These shoes pair nicely with almost any outfit combination, giving me the freedom to dress them up or down based on where I’m going that day. Gucci is my go-to for all-day comfort, but any loafers or slides that are comfortable make for the perfect shoes to maintain your style and allow you to do your job effortlessly and confidently.
