If we could dub 2014 one thing (besides the year of Yoncé), it would be the year of the pointy-toe flat. In fact, it's hard to even find a pair of traditional ballet flats these days. We like this style for Monday because it's polished and feminine, and it commands just as much respect as your killer stilettos.

Pointy flats play well with other ladylike components, like this knee-length skirt. Top yours with a colorful sweater and a large tote that fits all of your Monday-morning essentials (e.g., an extra-large coffee mug).
Masculine influences always seem to make their way into our wardrobe come fall. And we're pretty happy they do, because there's nothing more comfortable than loafers, the perfect shoes to take you from a business lunch to a best-friend dinner. Look for an updated take on this style, like this pair from Everlane, or go straight-up classic in penny loafers topped with leather tassels.

When wearing flats with pants, pay attention to length. All of your pants should hit at or above your ankle (no boot-cut or bell-bottom styles allowed). Go full-on "borrowed from the boys" with your loafers and pair them with plaid trousers and a boxy coat.
The best part about the return of '60s style? The influx of over-the-knee boots. These elegant flats work with just about anything. Pair them with a minidress to channel your inner Ali MacGraw, a midi skirt for a more '70s vibe or your favorite skinny jeans to get that modern feel. They're guaranteed to help you over the midweek hump.
Tall boots look fantastic with a flowy dress. Not to mention it's, like, the most comfortable outfit ever. Toss on a poncho and grab your most playful clutch for a funky boho vibe.
Let's face it: Thursday is the new Friday. So it's imperative that your footwear can get you through the whole day (late-night karaoke included). These puppies were made for walking. They’re comfy and a breeze to style (just add skinny jeans). From Saint Laurent to Topshop, you can find virtually any price or detail to suit your personal taste. The only real question: Are you ready for some shorties?

Few things look as polished as a tuxedo shirt and a pair of black pants. While this outfit could be finished with almost any type of footwear, we love it with semi-flat ankle boots. It's normcore in the best way possible.
Tomboy Style isn't simply a blog anymorea blog anymore, it's a way of life. Hence the reason monk-strap brogues are now just as much a staple for women as they are for men. We love these shoes for a casual Friday because the look plays well with everything in our wardrobe (seriously, try us).

Need we say more? Saturdays were made for coffee runs, bike rides and walks in the dog park. In other words, no dress shoes allowed. Instead, lace up a pair of old-fashioned sneakers for a day jam-packed with activities.

Espadrille slippers are always a "do" when it comes to a lazy Sunday brunch. Oh, and we're obsessed with these NYC-based Sabahs. You can score them by emailing “The Dealer” (psst, it’s not as sketchy as it sounds).

Hey, did you know that sweatpants are actually acceptable to wear outside of your home? OK, maybe not all sweatpants, but definitely these tappered joggers. Oh, and how awesome is this oversized camo tote?
Dear sky-high stilettos: You’re beautiful, but do you know what’s not? Our bunions.
What’s a girl to do? Embrace her flats, that’s what.
