13 Flats Fancy Enough to Wear to a Wedding
Let’s be honest, wearing heels to an outdoor summer wedding sucks. Sinking into the grass, sweating, slipping, blistering...the list of woes goes on and on. This season, instead of suffering, simply embrace the alternative: fancy flats. Yes, they are dressy enough. And no, you won’t get dirty looks from the bride. (She feels your pain, too.) Here are 13 flats that are even trendier than your basic pair of pumps.
Give your old LBD new life with these embellished numbers.

Not into beads? Try metallic stars.
