We all have days where we must embrace the flat shoe. Once thought upon as casual footwear, flats have now become the ultimate fashion must-have. The ballerina pump can be the ultimate in chic – think Chanel and you’ll see what we mean. Lace-ups offer an alternative to the ballerina pump for formalwear or to create an edgy, casual look. Pair your brogues with officewear, skinny jeans or a skirt for entirely different looks. The moccasin – think Sienna Miller – gives yet another flat alternative. Heavy with fringing and tassels, or else embracing the deck-shoe look, moccasins offer a high-fashion look perfect for the summer months. For the more active or casual amongst us, there has never been a greater range of sneakers and trainers available; keep it practical or embrace high fashion – the options are out there. For that super sunny look, the sandal, the flip-flop and the gladiator offer different interpretations of the open summer flat; keep it pretty,go for practical or embrace high fashion with tassels, feathers and beading.
