It’s finally fall. In most places, this means a change in temperatures and wardrobes – but for always-sunny South Florida, fall is just another marker of how far we are into the year. The temperatures are still in the 80s, the beach is still an appropriate weekend activity and it’s still too hot for even the lightest of sweaters.
Sadly, that means boots are out of the question. But that doesn’t mean we can’t update our wardrobe to reflect the pumpkin-defined season.
Put away those summer sandals and opt for a pair of flats instead. From classic ballerinas to smoking slippers, here are a few flats that are on our radar.
1. Air Loubi ($345, Christian Louboutin)
These indoor slippers are so adorable, you’d wish you could wear them outside. Also comes in gray fabric, black leather and magenta silk.
2. Chase Ballet Flat ($265, Tory Burch)
A classic black flat, topped with a tortoise bow. Tory, you’ve done well.
3. Daayna Flat ($89.95, Steve Madden)
With its pointy toe, lace-up straps and mini metal heel, these are a far cry from your typical flats. No worries, the shoe zips at the back so you don’t need to lace up every time.
4. Classic Lilac ($175, Tieks by Gavrieli)
The beauty of Tieks: they fold up so you can slip them into a shoe pouch and keep them handy when you’re done with your heels. Perfect for after-work errands.
5. Hefner in Cobalt Suede ($265, French Sole)
Taking a page out of men’s fashion, French Sole brings you the smoking slipper. The cobalt blue suede fabric and tassel detailing put a feminine twist on a masculine piece.
