Beautiful, elegant and easy on your feet – what’s there not to love about flats! ‘Flats’ can mean a variety of shoe types but I am referring to close-fronted flat shoes that can be worn with or without footsies (those tiny invisible socks). My eyes are instantly drawn to a fabulous pair of flats. Personally, I find an outfit styled with statement flats the epitome of everyday sophistication. I always feel that there is refined confidence exuded by a woman who looks fabulous and does not need a pair of heels to lift the outfit. I do love heels as much as the next person but given a finite amount of money and asked to choose between a gorgeous pair of flats and a gorgeous pair of heels – I would put my money on the flats every time! I have written about my take on building a great ‘flats’ collection in an earlier blog post – The ‘Fabulous Flats’ Series: My Take on Building a Great ‘Flats’ Shoe Collection.
Flats exhibit great versatility in terms of looking great at work and on the weekend, and can actually be worn to and from work without ‘under the desk’ shoe changes. In colder countries such as England, there is a defined window of time that flats can be worn in perfect sync with the weather. For me, ‘flats time’ is the period between spring and ‘proper summer’ (when we have one) paving the way for summer sandals. Therefore, while the weather outside may seem very cold to think sockless shoes, it will soon be time for flats. So dust off your flats, plan some outfits around them and if you need some new ones – Easter holidays would be a great time to shop! I have linked some great ones on sale below.
I hope you enjoyed this lookbook and as always, thank you so much for visiting my blog.
