How else can you make your summer days more comfortable than with a cool pair of flats?
We all know shoes are the ones that make the difference in our look. As Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world“. Well, Miss Marilyn was surely referring to flats because these are the shoes in which you can surely conquer the world! You wear them on a daily basis and since we all want to look great in our spring/summer outfits, the accessories we choose are crucial.
Whether we are talking about espadrilles or sandals, flat shoes are for sure the most comfortable and practical shoe type! They are reinterpreted in million styles season after season by the major brands in the fashion industry, or by the mass market ones. Designers like Burberry, Tory Burch or Charlotte Olympia (who I personally adore!) are playing with styles, colors and prints in order to create the best possible fit for our tastes in what concerns shoes fashion!
Let’s find out which are the must-haves of this season when it comes to flat shoes and how you can adjust what you already have in your closet in order to make the best of your every-sunny-summer day!
#1 Animal print
As I already stressed out in my last article about Block Heel Sandals, animal print is a never-ending trend! You just have to be careful how to mix it in order to not look cheap. For example, the Bisoux beauties designed by Charlotte Olympia go perfectly with shorts and a simple T-shirt!
TIP: For the Pollini espadrilles get inspiration from the Fashion Blogger Kim Jacobs from her blog All about the style! She totally rocked her boyfriend jeans and white, simple T-shirt outfit with a nice pair of animal print flats!
Simple, yet chic. The animal print flats totally change the overall look of the outfit.
