For many women, life is a constant struggle of wanting your feet to look stylish without having to deal with the blisters caused by most heels. Fortunately, whoever claimed “pain is beauty” just didn’t know how to style flats. There are countless ways to dress up your flats to look equally as professional, chic, and playful as your favorite stilettos. From ballet slippers to loafers and mules, the styling options for flats are truly endless and worth exploring — starting today.
1. Go fancy with flats and an ankle-length gown
At the 2015 British Fashion Awards, Poppy Delevingne proved a red-carpet look doesn’t have to include painful stilettos. Delevingne completed her feminine pink ensemble with pointed-toe slip-on flats. We love that she let them do the talking by wearing an ankle-length gown. The next time you dress formally, take a page from Delevingne’s book and don’t shy away from flats.
