Best Flat Shoes: 20+ Fancy Flats To Swap Your Heels For

The best fancy flats you’ll want to swap your heels for

Because cool (and comfy) shoes do exist...

Looking for a pair of the best flat shoes to take your outfit from the office to the bar and beyond? Well, you’re in luck: Flat shoes are totally having a moment right now. Designed for style and comfort, the best flat shoes are the new go-to for fashion girls this season and there’s plenty to choose from both from the catwalk and high street. Whether you’re into classic brogues, the new mules or even the Gucci loafer that has staged quite the triumphant comeback at Fashion Week – there’s a pair of perfect flat shoes for you. And even better news this season is that that the broken back slip-on loafer trend from the summer is still alive and well in the key AW16 trends too.

Whether you’re looking for the next step on from the functional sports-luxe trend or just an injection of practical glamour, flat shoes were the favourite at the AW16 shows, and now they’re everywhere.

Here at Marie Claire HQ we’re firm believers that every girl should make space for plenty of pairs of flats in her shoe repertoire.

Worried that you’ll struggle to find slip-ons or lace-ups that will give your outfit an extra-special edge? Our round-up proves that flat needn’t mean boring or bland. The new season’s punchy palettes give masculine styles a modern update, while pointed shoes remain a chic option for day-to-day wear.

If you’re trying to stick to a budget, we suggest stopping by high street favourites Mango, Topshop and Zara, who all offer lots of on-trend flats that won’t break the bank. ASOS is another must if you’re desperate to satisfy your shopping craving just before pay-day as well.

If you’re after an investment, we urge you to consider Sophia Webster for some statement-but-totally-irreverent ballet flats, while Jil Sander and Gucci have luxe loafers all wrapped up this season as well.
