Ditch Your Heels for These 8 Going-Out Flats
First, the good news: Stiletto heels for your cocktail or red-carpet look are sort of over, unless you’re going for that underage Sunset Boulevard clubgoer vibe. Going-out flats—shoes that are a little more glittery, laced-up or embellished than your workaday ballet flats—are all the rage. Now the bad news: It’s hard to choose between them. Here’s our pick of the chicest new styles.
Seriously, it’s a shiny loafer with mouse ears—basically the footwear equivalent of the life of the party.
Swarovski crystals and a huge jewel button turn anything from a dress to jeans and a silk blouse into an event.
Miu Miu ($950)
Silvery leather pumps with satiny laces to tie around your ankles, all ballerina-style? It’s like we’re seven years old again and playing dress-up.
There’s a lot going on: Rose-tone glitter, an ankle strap and a cutaway-arch design. Pair them with a simple LBD.
Steve Madden ($70)
Pointy and practically see-through from the geometric laser cutouts, these would pair well with any minimalist sheath.
Italian-made and adorned with a crystal buckle. We’d wear these with a breezy evening slip now and with tights and our holiday ensembles forever.
Manolo Blahnik ($955)
Made just like a man’s shoe—if that man was Elton John circa 1978. These would look amazing with some flowy evening pajamas.
Anine Bing ($499)
