What to Wear: Scalloped Flats

Spring Flats

Top: Chloe ‘Lauren’ Scalloped Ballet Flat ($475); Bottom: Cole Haan ‘Alice’ Skimmer Ballet Flat ($138)

I recently met with one of the most stylish executives I know. She was wearing these incredible scalloped-edged flats. It’s very hard to find flats that look sharp for work – heels make everything look better! – but she pulled it off flawlessly, maintaining a polished, powerful look. [Side note: few of you know this, but I’ve been recovering from double stress fractures in my feet for about the past year. I wear heels in the posts, but not for everyday meetings. It’s been a struggle to find ways to feel and look polished in flats.]

The executive’s flats happened to be by Chloe. Beautiful as can be, they are beyond what I have in my budget for spring shoes. As luck would have it, Cole Haan makes an incredible, similar pair. The pointy toe makes them sleek and Cole Haan’s signature air cushion make them ultra comfortable. Can’t wait to wear these babies all over the world!

What shoes are you buying for spring? How do you make flats look sleek? I’d love to hear your strategies. : )
