Flats For Fall

September 27, 2014

Fall is here!! This is my favorite season; I just love the changing colors on the leaves and the crisp autumn weather.  But what good is fall without perfect footwear?  I was just offered a job as an Information Specialist (AKA a tour guide) at Cornell, so I'm in the market for some new, comfortable flats, and these are at the top of my list:

 

1) The Classic Flat

Nothing compares to the perfect pair of Tory Burch flats.  I've had these Caroline Ballet Flats ($225.00) for about a month now, and I am in love with them!  They're extremely comfortable (even comfier than the Reva flats!) and this particular color (Cabernet) is THE color of the season.  This shoe also comes in navy, grey, and tan.  These are perfect for lots of walking because the elastic band doesn't rub against your foot or create blisters.  Just a word of warning, the Caroline Flats don't have a lot of traction, so they can become slippery when walking on pavement! 

 

2) The Fancy Flat

The Amina Flat by Sole Society ($59.95) is great for special occasions!  The quilted detail is adorable, and I love the black cap-toe! This shoe also comes in all black, crimson red, and navy.  This shoe is so fun and festive, making it a fabulous shoe for the upcoming holiday season!

 

3) The Out-and-About Flat

This Kendall & Kylie Madden Girl Poppyy Flat ($49.95) is so fun!  I was automatically drawn to these because I love all things Kardashian/Jenner, but these shoes are actually so cute.  The cap-toe is making another appearance as hot trend this fall.  These flats challenge the "no white shoes after labor day rule," but they are the perfect shoes if you'll be doing lots of walking this fall! 

 

4) The Trendy Flat

We've been seeing a lot of 1990s influences in the latest trends, from halter tops to high socks. When I saw these Sole Society Celia Pointy Toe Flats ($59.95), I automatically thought of Cher and the rest of the "Clueless" crew.  Plaid and tartan patterns are making a comeback this season, and these shoes will make a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  I'd pair these with navy knee-high socks, a circle skirt, a tank, and a jean jacket.  But, they can also be worn with jeans and leggings

 

5) The Coveted Flats 

These Charlotte Olympia Kitty Cat Satin Flat Slippers ($595.00) are the kinds of shoes I dream about.  Charlotte Olympia is known for making the craziest shoes, but these are the perfect compromise between practical and fun.  The silhouette is so simple, making it a versatile shoe that can be worn with anything.  The cat design is whimsical and fun, and the gold heel is the perfect touch!! These shoes are trendy, comfy, and so adorable!

 

6) The Designer Must-Have

These Valentino Rockstud Ballerina Flats ($745.00) are on the top of my list right now.  I'm in love with the whole Rockstud collection, but the flats are definitely the most practical.  Made of the finest leather and assembled in Italy, these designer flats are certainly a splurge, but they're too cute to pass up!  These flats come in black, red, pink, blue, white, and tan! With so many colors to choose from, the Rockstud flats are perfect for all fashionistas!  (Tip: Try a half size up from your normal size; it's way more comfortable in the front!)
