In a perfect world filled with around-the-clock car service, no stairwells or cobblestone, it’d be practical to wear 5 inch Manolos on 24/7 basis.  To the contrary, the average woman is not built with the Carrie Bradshaw-like ability to walk 10 New York City blocks in stilettos with a smile. Sometimes a girl just needs her flats! Flat doesn’t have to mean doughty.  Here are some of our favorite spring flats that don’t sacrifice your style.

The lace up pointy-toed flat

5 Stylish Spring Flats We Love

This chic style graced New York Fashion Week heavy this year. If you follow style bloggers, you may already be attuned to this trend. Laced Pointy-Toed flats are great for being comfortable without compromising your femininity. They are the perfect substitute for corset heels.

The fashion gods have been very forgiving this season. Sneakers are still and hopefully will continue to be acceptably chic paired with sophisticated trenches. The classic get-up and go look is perfect for grabbing your groceries before heading to the gym


Ankle Wrapped Flats

Ankle Wrapped Flats

This is a sister style of the laced up pointy flat. Ankle wraps take a more minimalistic approach that makes them perfect for the work place and super easy to style.

If you missed the memo, pointy toe shoes have trumped rounded toe shoes by far this season. This basic shape works just as well in its traditional form than it does with all the bells and whistles of straps and laces. Pointy toed flats are an everyday substitute for heels when heels just aren’t practical.

With minimalism still stomping out the competition in the street style world, tailored flats have taken center stage. Not only is this style perfect for accidently looking like a natural boss, they are usually carefully crafted to ensure maximum comfort too.
