What heels? 10 chic flats with a comfy twist













It is finally time for sunlight and fresh air, aka no-tights weather – time to get those feet out. We do love our heels, but this season we give you 10 very good reasons to step down and get into the flat trend. Our selection covers all your needs (we’ve skipped the flower prints because, you know, “florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”). You’re only one click away from a perfect pair for your comfy and stylish spring.




1 – Artsy vibes – Cri de Coeur

A colorful flat shoe that’s perfect for brightening up solid-hue outfits or finishing off a vividgoo look with colors from head to toe, Chloe Norgaard style. This Cri de Coeur flat is perfect for hot days when your feet need some air.

2- For long-legged gladiator girls –  Faryl Robin at Free People

If you’ve got long legs (lucky thing!), this pair of gladiators  give any outfit a super-stylish vibe. As a stylist, I would wear these beauties with a pair of cut-off denim shorts on a lazy day.

3 – Girl meets boy – Matisse at Anthropologie

Don’t worry girlie girls, we saved some super cute flats for you too. Polka dots + cut out design = pretty much the trendiest one-of-a-kind pair you’ll find.

4- From Brazil with love – Melissa

With so many designer collaborations, it’s impossible not to love at least one pair of Melissas from each collection. And let’s be honest, they do an amazing job with plastic, an underestimated material in fashion. These flip-flop-like flats are an easy and chic alternative for summer days.

5- The classic Charlotte Olympia kitty flat in 100% canvas! – Moda Operandi

The first time I saw the kitty ballerina flat from Charlote Olympia I couldn’t think they could get any better – until now. These beauties gain summer vibes with bright colors and  animal-friendly canvas material. Moreover, every girl needs at least one $500+ shoe in their closet.

6- Cutting edge –  Cheap Monday at Asos

Cut-out shoes always look fancy – they just do. Swedish fashion is ruling the runways – the Scandis know what “cool” looks like.

7- Put some purple on it – Nicora Johns

It’s bright, it’s purple and it’s Nicora Johns. Do I need to say more? They’re on sale so too, so don’t take too long.

8- Essential, chic and handmade – Beyond Skin

Let’s get back to the essentials – we all need at least one nude ballerina. These chic flats complete the look with an elegant vibe. Also, nude shoes make our legs look longer, and which mortal girl doesn’t want  longer legs?

9- Tomboy style – Good Guys at BigCartel

Fashion is obsessed with tomboy style lately – as am I. Plus, mannish shoes with ladylike colors is a perfect combination. These look perfect with your favorite jeans or with that trendy midi-skirt we’re all so in love with.

10- Crystal sparklers – MSGM at Net-a-Porter

MSGM gives us another good reason to buy a luxury shoe this spring. Embellished with crystals, these flats scream cool – what I like most about them  is that they are able to upgrade even the most normcore look.

So tell me, which one are you betting on this spring?
