There are many women who have an abundance of high heeled shoes on their shoe rack for one reason or another. Some of them believe that wearing heels are the only way to look good in shoes but this is not true. Flat shoes or flats are a great addition to any outfit and should find a place in everyone’s wardrobe. Health wise, wearing heels all the time might put a strain on your back and legs and it is a good idea to alternate them with flat shoes.
Flats are very comfortable to wear and can be matched with any outfit you own. For a casual look, jeans look good with flats and provide comfort as well. Leather flats are an option to go for if you plan to keep your flats for some years. They are easy to keep clean and will look good if taken care of properly. Neutral colors such as black, brown, tan and gray will go with most colors and outfits. You can also buy them in other materials such as fabric and suede.
Summer dresses and pretty print skirts also look good paired with flats. You can even find basic flat shoes with kitten heels for those who prefer a little bit of height. During the day, light colored shoes look attractive and you can find them in various styles and designs that can be teamed with different outfits in your wardrobe. From paisley prints to polka dots, you can find one in almost any shade of color. Ballet flats are great for casual strolls as well as outdoor barbecues. They are very comfortable, easy to slip on and off and you can be on your feet the whole day without any problems.
Before purchasing flats, take a look at what outfits you would like to pair them with. The style, design and color of the outfits can influence the choice of flats you buy. Neutral shades are always a good choice but experiment a bit and look for colors or prints that you may not normally consider. A pair of navy blue shorts and a crisp white shirt or t-shirt would look great paired with blue flats with small white polka dots. You could also team a pretty printed summer dress with a pair of flats chosen from one of the colors on your dress.
For formal occasions, you could go for patent leather flats or ones with a buckle or embroidered patterns on them. This would liven up a black or solid colored dress and complete your look. Good colors to wear for night functions would be black, gold, silver and bronze. Silver and gold sandals and flats have also been worn by brides to their lawn or beach weddings. You can also find flat open-toed court shoes that look fabulous paired with silk or satin dresses. These flats can come in silk and satin as well.
There are many celebrities now wearing flats to premiere events and launch parties and they look absolutely gorgeous in them. Pregnant women especially should wear flats as heels are not recommended for them. If you wear heels all the time, try alternating them with flats and see the difference it can make to your look. Your feet will thank you for them and your options for footwear would have increased as well!
