When heels are too high, sandals too open, wedges too… wedged. A girl can count on a wonderful pair of flats to pull any outfit together. I am super excited to share my 9 choices for wonderful flats!
I recently completed a major overhaul of my flat shoes. After several years of commuting to work in the Big Apple, I have settled down in the suburbs. Now I spend more time in my car than on my feet.
After the initial thrill of being able to wear heels every day without fear of blisters or falls, I circled back to my collection of flats. They were in a state of utter disarray, destroyed by salt, scuffed on stone steps and worn through and through.
I decided to make a few wise purchases: flats in every color of the rainbow to compliment my wardrobe. These flats breathe life into even the simplest jeans and a tee. Here is a showcase of my favorite snappy flats, including reviews and where to buy!
These are my personal favorites… so comfortable, very versatile, well made and a color that surprisingly goes with everything! This flat features a low vamp, and great cushioning… the bow is a darling addition to a fun and sexy shoe.
A close second for my favorite flat purchase, these bright flats add an unsuspected pop of color, and look great with jeans. They’re comfortable, and the bow and gem detail add just the amount of femininity and sparkle. Snap-tastic!
I scored these gorgeous kate spade new york flats for a song and a dance on Amazon, and used a coupon for 20% off my first shoe or apparel purchase. I highly recommend checking out their selection, these flats are a welcome addition to my closet. They arrived super fast thanks to Prime shipping, and are very comfortable, plus I love how the red and black patent leather play against the leopard print, c’est chic!
My black MIA flats are a staple, every girl should have a comfortable and current pair of black flats. I replaced a pair of beloved Ann Taylor flats, that had stretched out and molded to the shape of my foot. I haven’t seen them on their site this year, but I still have an eye out for them. For now, the MIA flats are completely practical, stylish, comfortable and on trend- the basket weave texture feels current, and the bow on front makes this an ideal ballet flat for daily wear.
These are just so fun! What girl wouldn’t love a great pair of bright pink shoes! This paid goes the extra mile in an updated loafer style, with a hint of crystal at the toe, as if they weren’t girly enough already. These are very comfortable, but do run small, so I suggest ordering up a half size. These are wonderful with a skinny cropped black pant and blouse.
These are my most recent purchase, and I haven’t taken them off for days. I would wear them to bed if that were acceptable! These loafers are the epitome of a classic look, complete with metal buckle, and a supple leather. I purchased them in yellow ochre, and I can’t help but think of Bob Ross every time I hear it! Geox is a brand synonymous with comfort and these do not disappoint. They’re breathable, soft, fit perfectly and go with so many items in my closet. From coral legging jeans, to bright blue skinnies, I can’t wait to figure out what to pair them with next!
I loved these next 2 pairs for their simplicity, low vamp, and price, so I purchased them in the Bordeaux, which is actually a bright candy apple red, and the Dusty Gold Metallic, which goes with everything! I wore these for a recent party for several hours in the heat and ended up with a few blisters and some soreness, and while I subtracted points for comfort over the long haul, the major style points of these Steve Madden points make up for it.
Last, but not least, are a chic neutral pair of perforated ballet flats in a taupe color that works well for any occasion. I have paired these with neon for a conference in NYC and was able to wear them the entire day without worry. The craftsmanship on these leaves a bit to be desired, and I will probably have to replace them next season, however, with a super trendy style like this, I’m OK with that!
Have you purchased any amazing flats recently?!
Just wanted to update, I noticed the kate spade flat was no longer available, so I wanted to share another option! It is available in leopard print!
