FIVE FLATS EVERY WOMAN NEEDS

High heels have their place, but when you want optimum comfort without compromising on style, these low-level wonders are your summer go-tos

The statement sandals

Stand out in sandals with that extra fashion kick: the type of flats you can slip on in place of heels for a summer garden party, or for cocktails al fresco in a sunny destination. Whether you choose prints, studs or show-stopping hardware, these are the compliment-worthy styles you’ll never want to take off.
