Beat the heat and treat your feet by taking it down a couple of inches and slipping into a comfortable pair of flats for summer. FLATS are all the rage this year, and between road trips, pool lounging, lugging the kids around, and standing on the grass at outdoor parties, we all are in need of an “aaahhh moment.” Luckily for us, flat shoes have never been more stylish or straight off the runway. During the Chanel Spring Runway Show, all the models were wearing flat sneakers….and Karlie Kloss was spotted at Cannes in a evening gown… and flat sandals. Although we all can’t be supermodels, we can take a tip for our toes (and apparently be comfortable?!) by kicking back in fashionable flats this summer ~ and the local stores are stocked and ready for us.
In addition to summer’s traditional thongs, flips, ballets, and sandals, stylish FLATS this year include sneakers, “birkenstocks”, “teava’s” clog styles, glorified pool shoes, gladiators, and pretty much anything that vaguely looks borrowed from skaters, from surfers and from your grandparents. Take a look at my favorite FLAT picks available right now in the Charlotte shops.
Ballet Flats and Espadrille Flats
And last but not least… my favorite classic tennis shoe
How to wear it? With your cutest summer dress, of course.
