Sure, high heels are the way to go when it comes to fun occasions. But with all that walking around, you’d be wishing you had something slightly more comfy.
Enter fancy flats. These are the ultimate life savers, and what’s more great about them is they don’t compromise on style.
When looking for a pair of flats, look for added details that make the shoes look and feel a little more special than the plain old ballerina.
Fun prints like plaid and leopard, metallic finishes and velvet are statement-making enough to let a simple little black dress stand out. And the sky is the limit when it comes to embellishments like studs, pom-poms and jewels.
FEMALE has combined a list of ten fancy flats to inspire:
Marmont metallic cracked-leather slippers, Gucci on Net-a-Porter
Metallic shoes are the ultimate ‘day-to-night’ footwear and in their flat form, you will actually be able to wear them all day and night.
Gabie Flat Silver Fireball Glitter Dégradé Fabric and Dusk Blue Suede Pointy Toe Flats, Jimmy Choo
Suede Slingbacks, RM249.00, H&M
Bold colors look especially rich in suede, even if it’s a faux suede.
Ava Gem Slingback Shoes, RM180, Topshop
Twisted Sequin Trainers, RM170, Topshop
Bejewelled Leather Ballerinas, RM269, Zara
A good minimalist sandal should be as low-profile as possible, the color should blend seamlessly with your outfit or even matching your skin tone so as not to steal focus from the rest of your look.
