Pre-fall is such an exciting time for style and most fashionistas’ favourite time of the year. Getting to wear your summer favourites like dresses and jumpsuits paired with jackets, boots and blazers gives you more to work with when putting together with outfits. One of our favourites for the pre-fall season is flats! We love how versatile flats can be taking us from the office to weekend brunch and of course how comfortable they can be compared to a pair of heels, while still feeling put together. This is definitively the time of year to take advantage of wearing flats before the snow starts hitting the ground. If you’re looking for a great piece of pre-fall footwear, here are 5 great flats we’re sure you’ll love!
Just because summer is coming to an end, doesn’t mean the fun exotic prints have to! These Feather flats from Steve Madden are bound to be the flats of the season, and we love the snake print pattern that never seems to go out of style. Pair these flats with a pencil skirt or raw hem skinny jeans.
Fashion Foot Forward
Although a more unusual style, these black suede pointed toe flats are super feminine and fashionable. We love the crushback heel turning these into mules instantly, which is super on-trend right now and gives you a lot of versatility with one shoe. These Black Suede Studio flats go great with culottes and cropped pants!
These Chanel inspired Zara ballerina flats are bound to be a go-to shoe. Their minimalistic style is given a bit of flare with the two-toned colourway and classic ballerina flat bow. These flats would go great with your favourite midi dress and leather jacket or kept casual with jeans and a t-shirt.
Another gorgeous pick and one of our favourite ballerina style flats are these Sam Edelman ones. The Felicia style is one of their staple designs coming in a variety of materials and colours, but we’re majorly crushing on this leopard print that’s definitely making its way back to fashion’s good books. Pair these with a skinny trouser or your favourite boyfriend jeans!
Who doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle? These Karl Lagerfeld Flats are the perfect balance of simple yet sophisticated with the embellished toe that gives us a bit of a Blair Waldorf vibe. Wear these with your favourite LBD for the office or cropped trousers.
