Not to write my high heels off completely, but since summer is the season to embrace ease and comfort, I have decided to take a breather from them. These comfy shoes come in different styles, from ballet flats, loafers, sneakers, sandals to the season’s hottest mules. Flats might not be as flashy as heels, but they’re certainly trusty, and give just enough leverage to construct statement looks.
1. Lace Playsuit from Cherryville
For time-pressed mornings, there’s nothing I love more than an easy outfit such as this white lacy playsuit. Is this the one trend we all should try ASAP before summer ends? Team with wavy hair and black loafers to keep it casual and cool, or try a low bun and red lipsticks for a dressier take!
2. Sleek Mini Dress with Contrast Trims from DABAGIRL
A flatteringly sharp silhouette that doesn’t require extra height from heels, this contrast-trim bodycon dress actually looks better with a lower heel than something sky-high. Just add a notched-lapel blazer and ballerinas to transition from the office to the bar with a swipe of lipstick.
3. Open-Front Patterned Kaftan from MOFFI
When it comes to light layering, it never hurts to have fresh combinations on hand. I’ve never been crazy about ponchos, especially in their previous iterations. But with its poppy graphic and breezy fabric, this one’s got me quite smitten. Simply pair with skinny jeans, a boxy crossbody bag and brogues for a cool weekend look.
4. Wide V-Neck Linen Blouse from FROMBEGINNING
Dressy without being too fussy, a flattering V-neck top like this linen edition lays the perfect foundation for going-out looks. What’s better than low-key flats to give this flashy neckline the credit it deserves?
5. Longline Sleeveless Duster Jacket from Hello sweety
The lightweight duster jacket does more than pair perfectly with denim – its structured silhouette instantly elevates any outfit. My favorite hack to spice up those recurring basic jeans, tee and ballerinas combo.
6. Wrap Style Gingham Dress from Envy Look
How sweet it would be to wear this dress with strappy sandals and hit the dance floor at your next summer wedding! The wrap front and waist sash lend it dressy appeal, and I’m on board with anything that gives off 80s or 90s vibe.
7. Striped Bodycon Dress from DDADDADDA
Stripes are always a classic, and I love the great color choices seen around, a case in point being these eye-catching rainbow stripes. This is probably the outfit I’ll be wearing on repeat with flats throughout the coming months.
8. Off-Shoulder Halter Top from DABAGIRL
The halter neckline and breezy structure keep this cold shoulder top summery and appropriately polished for events that are a tad fancier than brunch dates. Best worn with minimalist loafers. Let the statement neckline take center stage!
9. Floral Print Backless Loafers from DABAGIRL
These floral backless loafers demonstrate how flats can amp an outfit just as well as heels. They’re perfect with megawatt party dresses, and the sweet florals effortlessly relax any business attire.
10. Lace Sneakers from MyFiona
Retro sneakers can add cool to casual outfits, too. Most importantly, they’re infinitely more comfortable. When a long night of walking awaits, these lace-embellished sneakers are the trusty kicks I’d go for. They’re so cute that you can actually wear them under a wedding dress.
