The top: Rectangle body types, you can and should accentuate your top half in any fashion equation. The lapel on this IRO jacket creates a little volume on top which will add some curves to your naturally straight shape.
The bottom: This is a trend-forward take on the classic pencil skirt cut. There's a little texture in there which will balance out what you're accentuating with the jacket on the top half of the look. Go with a basic black if you're office is beige-land, or by all means, liven the joint up a bit with an injection of color. Speaking of color...
The rest: These pumps are just one example of how you can play with your pumps. It's a personal, and completely emotional decision that is completely in your hands. Go with something that feels good, above all, you need to feel comfortable in what you're wearing so the look doesn't end up wearing you. That said, these looks are here to inspire you to step a smidge outside of your everyday fashion routine. Take pieces here and there, cross-reference what you have in your own closet, and baby step your way to an upgraded personal sense of style. A grey shoulder bag and neutral, edgy cuff will keep it pulled together while adding a little additional 'oomph' to the look.
The ONE thing you need to know: There's plenty of print and texture going on here. When it comes to the pencil skirt, keep it colorful but subtle. If you're going to pop some serious color on the bottom half, back to that jacket, make sure you go with a more basic pump. This works because the under-tones on each piece, minus the shoe, blend well together. Blues and grey naturally complement one another. The red is in there to shake things up a bit.
