The flat is officially back! Whatever your style, treat your feet this season with our cool and comfortable curation…
The ballet flat
For a feminine finish, a pearlescent pair of ballet flats are a chic alternative to summertime heels. Look for pairs in soft, textured leather and go unlined to ensure a supple feel. Alternatively, try stylish slingback straps for an elegant daytime look.
Borrow from the boys with a bookish pair of brogues. Glossy and gamine, wear with bare legs to anchor tailored shorts and throw on an oversized blazer for effortless, undone style. Polish off the look with a beautifully aged leather satchel.
Balmy summer evenings call for lightweight espadrilles to slip on with ease. Canvas styles with jute soles are perfect for exploring in the heat whilst lavish lace pairs have an intricacy that makes them a pivotal day-to night staple.
Despite being timeless in shape, interesting twists render the loafer completely contemporary. From whipstitch framed moccasins to monogrammed pairs, when it comes to styling, creativity is key. Compliment the shoe’s powerful undertones with sharp tailoring and a striking red lip.
The point toe
A key silhouette this season, the point toe brings an air of refinement by aligning softness with an unexpected edge. Keep the shape in focus with high hemlines or create a contrast to the shoe’s strong aesthetic by pairing with artfully rolled denim.
The lace up
Smart, stylish and practical, the lace up flat delicately dresses the ankle for a glamorous yet understated look. Opt for pairs with a decorative touch - whether it’s a ruffle trim, scalloped edge or cut out pattern, just one simple flourish will compliment the shoe’s almond shaped toe.
Elevate the season’s shift dress with a pair of art-inspired sandals. Invest in a pair adorned with beaded embellishment and mix creamy neutrals with pops of decadent hues for a classic update. Rich mahogany looks particularly luxe against all white, simply layer on the jewellery.
This season, lift your summer style with on-trend slides in butter soft leather. Add a touch of the avant-garde to your coverup and let the shoe’s minimalist and modern aesthetic take you from pool to city in an instant.
The party flat
Whilst an opulent velvet slipper will move you seamlessly from work to bar, you can also experiment with leather trims, gold hardware and metallic flecks. Showcase this standout shoe with short structured hemlines and lightly bronzed legs.
