Summer and early fall are all about carefree fun; enjoying those last days of wonderful weather before the autumn chill begins. And that means dressing for anywhere the day may take you. You can’t beat a cool summer dress for beating the heat. By layering your look you’ll transition smoothly into cooler weather. And if you truly want to be ready for adventure, you need to forgo those high-heeled sandals for a pair of fashionable, and comfortable, closed-toe flats.
Of course, ballet flats are a classic choice and always in fashion. A neutral pair will go well with everything and also make your legs appear longer. But if you’re up for an edgier look, try pairing combat boots with a feminine slip silhouette or trendy tennies with a colorful maxi dress. Prefer something a little less out there? Try the slightly more sophisticated version of the ballet slipper – pointy toe flats. Olivia Palermo recently wowed a New York crowd in a ruffled pink party mini and pointy flats. A cute feminine bow made them particularly party worthy.
If you just can’t live without a little bit of a heel, opt for some stylish slingbacks or kitten heel mules. You won’t have quite the flexibility you would in trainers. But you’ll avoid the ankle twisting peril of a higher heel. Whatever you decide, you’re sure to look fabulous by keeping it cool, casual, and most of all comfortable.
