How To Style Lace-Up Flats
There’s nothing sexier than showing a bit (or a lot) of ankle—especially when they’re all wrapped up in dainty laces & tassels. These modern-day ballerina flats dress up casual fabrics like denim or French terry. Pair your lace-ups with cut-offs & an airy crochet shell for a romantic, brunch-ready look.
Stylist Tip: If you’re wearing shorts this season, throw on a tonal blazer for more coverage on breezy days. The structured layer will add some needed polish to your casual cut-offs.
How To Style Slip-On Sneakers
Slip into something a little more comfortable—like fashion sneakers! Not only are slip-on sneakers versatile, they’re oh-so-easy—who has time for laces anyway? Swap out your flats and try these casual-cool kicks with your favorite sundress or raw-hem skinny jeans for an urban take on a timeless combo.
Stylist Tip: Opt for ankle-length or cropped pants when sporting these sneak—showing a bit of ankle can eliminate a bulky look & feel.
How To Style D’Orsay Flats
Slightly sexy, totally sophisticated, the D’Orsay flat is contemporary, simple and—most importantly—walkable. The angular cut-outs make them perfect for wide feet, while the toe box keeps the style secure on your soles. They’re a quick way to update your work wardrobe, plus the pointed style gives the illusion of longer legs.
Stylist Tip: Pop on a pair of D’Orsay flats with a pencil skirt or your go-to trousers for days you literally can’t even walk in your heels.
How To Style Bright Sandals
Go top-to-toe in brights! Vibrant sandals are as versatile as their neutral counterparts. With bold-on-bold pairings trending for spring, don’t shy away from wearing saturated slip-ons with printed sundresses. Like statement jewelry, eye-catching sandals add a subtle surprise to any outfit.
Stylist Tip: Don’t be afraid to mix watery-blue hues with fiery reds—they’re a complementary pairing that make each other’s best features pop.
How To Style Peep-Toe Booties
Yes you can wear your favorite fall footwear in the spring! The peep-toe bootie has all the comfort of a boot with the breathability of a sandal. Unlike flats, the slight heel makes this style perfect for date night or for wearing under wide-leg denim. Try them in black with a tan stacked heel—the color combo makes them appropriate day or night.
With the addition of footwear in your Fixes (have you updated your Style Profile yet?), the age-old question has been answered: shoes come first.
