Shoesday Tuesday: Fancy Flats
Jessie Ajluni | Tuesday July 4th 2017
With warm weather descending upon us and wedding season in full swing, I have been scouring both shops and the Internet for the perfect eveningwear pieces to wear on these boiling summer days. But it seemed, my search was in vain; I couldn’t seem to find anything that would work. Everything just felt like something that I had worn before. Like those strappy sandals that would sink into the ground as soon as I stepped foot on an immaculate lawn for an evening of cocktails. Or those seen on the feet of party goers, walking on the way to an elaborate upstate-barn inspired by this year’s must have wedding pinterest boards.
It wasn’t however, until a call with Tamu were we started chatting about what she would be wearing for her upcoming Bulgari event that got me thinking all about unconventional evening wear and more specifically fancy flats. Now I chatted with all you pretty birds before about the struggles I have had wearing nothing less than towering heels and while those feelings have diminished as I have gotten older I must admit that the idea of wearing flats to a formal event was intimidating. But as I began to search for pieces for this post I was instantly hooked; from Rochas satin and rhinestone slides to miu miu sparkling pearl and glitter ballet flats designers are creating some of the most chic shoes around. So if, like me, you are looking to step up your style game this wedding season, check out our round-up below of some of the most fantastic flats around.
