There’s never been a better time to upgrade your go-to flats.
The fashion world has finally embraced flats as an equally chic alternative to heels. And as a result, the past few years have been a true renaissance when it comes to heel-free footwear.
Cool mules and loafers have owned the runways, and casual canvas espadrilles have been getting the designer treatment. Even celebrities and It girls in street style blogs have recently been all about putting comfort first. Cue the sigh of relief from fashion-obsessed travelers worldwide.
We love the idea of playing around with a familiar classic silhouette and transforming it into a statement shoe with bold colors or by adding pretty details like ankle wraps. But our favorite shoe this season has to be the mule — we’d wear it in metallic, rose-gold leather, or suede.
So whether you’re in the market for classic ballet flats to bring on your European getaway, or you’d like to treat yourself to a pair of loafers to wear to the opening of a new restaurant, prepare to make some tough choices.
Below, check out the most stylish flats out there right now.
