Summer calls for easy dressing, and that definitely includes your footwear, too. Think about it: The last thing you want to do is run around a beach or garden party in sky-high stilettos that make mingling a total hassle. Or maybe you’re simply not a heels girl, period. Either way, you’re in luck, since fancy flats—like metallic ballerinas or satin sandals—that are both elegant and comfortable are all the rage right now, and can be a tasteful alternative to high-heeled options. Even if you’re a more fashion-forward girl looking to dress for a formal occasion by the beach, on a lawn or at a vineyard, there’s a flat for you in the form of an ornate slide or embellished mule. The best part? You’ll see a ton of wear far beyond your special event—just sub in jeans and a T-shirt for a casual-cool spin. Whether you’re in need of an affordable find or looking to make an investment, here, we culled an edit of flats that may even attract high-heel diehards. Kiss those sore feet goodbye… for the next few months, anyway.
