The short answer to your question is: absolutely! While heels are an integral part of many women’s wardrobes, sometimes flats are a little more fun (and more comfortable). In flats you can frolic, twirl and get down on the dance floor with ease.
The key to a fancier pair rides on the material, color and style. Metallic, embellished and sparkly styles can easily dress up a for black-tie event and, unlike some heels, many of these choices can be dressed down for more casual events afterward. To keep your look elevated and under-the-radar comfortable, try pairing your dress with patent-leather oxfords or pointed gold slip-ons—just be sure to avoid traditional ballet flats.
