How to Wear: Two-Toned Flats


I can count on one hand how many clients we work with who want to be in sky high heels all day long.  Most, if not all of our clients, will eventually ask us if it’s okay to wear flats to work and/or with dresses.  The simple answer to both?  Absolutely!

Follow a few rules.  Keep the toe of the shoe elongated.  This extends your leg and looks more polished.  Avoid rounded toe flats when you are more formally dressed.  Rounded toe by nature will always translate to being casual.  It will also make your legs look short and stumpy.  No one wants that.

You could do a lot with these shoes.  A slim lined black trouser, distressed boyfriend jeans, maybe even a pair of shorts and white blazer.  I like it with a simple dress since it adds some classic character.  I would wear something like this to a business lunch or daytime event.  The wrap is optional.  As with all sleeveless dresses, if you’re seated under the air conditioner you have two options: wrap or freeze.  I tend to pick the latter which is stupid.  Instead, pick up a few of these in some neutrals and one pop of color.  You’ll be happy you have them.
