It's not kosher to slip out for a night on the town missing one's sky-high heels, but have you ever wondered if flats could be styled for evening rendezvous? Good news is coming your way after the jump!
THE LOOK: Arabian Nights
+ I am wearing a vintage top from Beacon's Closet, a pair of smiley, sequin shorts from Dolls Kill, some textured, nude tights from Target, and a pair of Daniel Green "Kaitlyn" slippers (purchase here).
In my experience, the drama begins long before one's arrival at a club or bar. I cannot take stilt walking on cobbled streets and cracked sidewalks. I also have an irrational (but partially rational) fear of snapping heels while stepping over manhole covers...
Put simply, stylish flats are definitely every girl's saving grace!
For today's post, I styled some sequined smoking slippers into a loud and expressive outfit. My mom has voiced her distaste for this top and, I'll admit, it is a bit clownish. However, I personally love its emerald green color and its flamenco-like, frill collar! Note that I wasn't too shy about pairing those sparkly flats with a pair of "happy" sequined shorts, too!
There are so many fabulous brands for sexy flats. You wouldn't normally associate that word with them, huh?
|Mesh with scalloped cap-toe flats, SammyDress.com, $17|
This one is a stylish steal!
|Valentino Rockstud Patent Leather & Leather Ballet Flats, Saks Fifth Avenue, $745|
I feel like every fashion blogger has gone gaga over Valentino's studded footwear, but this one's got a funky, neon color to it.
|Chiara Ferragni Disney Maleficent Glittered Loafers, Luisaviaroma.com, $298|
Be careful not to get these wet while your friends drool over them! An added plus includes that they're designed by blogger, Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad.
|Pretty Ballerinas Two-tone Ballet Flat, Farfetch.com, $150|
Wearing the ombré trend is always a good choice. I'm loving the chocolate brown and bronze colors on this pair!
|Sophia Webster Loca Suede Pipe-Trimmed Ballet Flats, Saks Fifth Avenue, $350|
A good pick to wear for a World Cup-themed party, this pointy flat shows some toe cleavage, for sure.
This weekend, give your footsies a break!
