FIVE FLATS EVERY WOMAN NEEDS

High heels have their place, but when it comes to standout summer style without
compromising on comfort, these low-level wonders are your go-tos

THE DO-IT-ALL SANDALS

Whether you go for black, tan, white or metallic, a pair of neutral-coloured sandals will be your summer staple. Pair with a satin midi skirt for work, white jeans at the weekend or your favourite summer dresses to head off on vacation.


THE PLAIN WHITE SNEAKERS

White sneakers have become a sartorial sensation in recent seasons, acting as the perfect dressed-down antidote to maximalist floral dresses, metallic midi skirts or statement-making pants. They also look great with simple jeans and a blazer, making them a truly versatile addition to your year-round wardrobe.


THE STATEMENT SANDALS

OK, so you’ve got your trusty plain sandals to wear everywhere from bus stop to beach – now you need a pair 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 showstopping hardware, these are the compliment-worthy sandals you’ll never want to take off.


THE SUMMER-READY SHOES

Offering more coverage than sandals, without the hot-weather woes of sweaty boots, a pretty pair of summer shoes will be your saviour paired with skinny jeans, cool linen or this season’s tailored shorts.


THE ON-TREND SNEAKERS

Got your white sneakers sorted? It’s time to up your game with standout styles ranging from on-trend chunky looks to mesmerising metallics. Keep your outfit slightly plainer with these designs – a fantastic pair of ecru jeans or denim skirt will complement the shoes without contending for the limelight.
