5 Of The Best Flat Shoes For Evening

Have you ever left the house in high heels, only to return in flats? By that I mean have you ever spent an evening out tottering around like Bambi on ice only to peel away your six-inch stiletto at the end of the night?to reveal a mass of blisters and torn stocking? Have you furtively searched?for the ballet pumps at the bottom of your bag only to find them with nothing short of watery-eyed relief? If this sounds painfully familiar, you’ll be glad to hear that fancy flats are the new high heels for summer. Here are five of the most fabulous flats for evening.

These beautiful ornate slip-on shoes don’t need a three-inch heel to feel?glamourous. The lace detailing, embellished front and gorgeous shade of teal create a standout shoe perfect for summer parties.

Online retailer Finery London always offers something a little bit different. Contrasting patent leather panels and a perspex heel make these ankle strap shoes utterly modern. And like a flatform, this low heel offers a little bit of elevation with out resorting to a (literally) killer heel.

These gold sandals are simple but stunning. They’re the perfect partner to a statement dress or vibrant print.

These gorgeous embellished T-bar sandals have a very 1920s feel to them. Wear with something beaded and fringed to finish the retro vibe.

These Spanish-inspired flatforms make a strong statement. I love the suede ankle cuff and textured suede detailing at the toe. If you’re wearing a simple dress, make these the standout piece in your outfit.
