It’s pretty simple really: feminine, office-appropriate frock plus cool, comfy flats equals pretty summer look with max mileage. Sure, you could back the flats in your bag and change after work, but why not embrace fashion’s sporty feet obsession (and the freedom to carry a small purse) and style them into your look from the start? Low-key footwear like loafers, sneakers, and slides are having a major moment, and we love that they’re not only a bit edgier than sandals, but also more supportive—so you can get to happy hour downtown with ease.
