The Best Flats for Fall
Take a step in the right fashion direction with these fierce flat shoes.
Who says you need to teeter on treacherous heels to be fashionable? Not us, nor Audrey Hepburn! The fashion icon shunned sky-high heels, and practically lived in flats. And what’s good enough for Audrey is good enough for us! Fall ’09 is giving low-rise flats a new lease on life thanks to trendy stud details, feminine ruffles and bows, sumptuous suede, rich autumnal hues, cloudy grays, and boyish lace-up brogues. Here are 10 of our favorites (and we think Audrey would have loved them, too!).
1. Pour Le Victoire Juliet Stud Suede Flats ($195, shopbop.com). Silver oxidized studs add some rock-star glam to these Parisian-chic gray slip-ons.The flats also come in black if you crave a bolder look.
2. Kryptic Gold Studded Shoe ($110, topshop.com) Embrace two trends with one shoe by slipping on these edgy studded brogues in black suede. Pair them with patterned tights, a black blazer, miniskirt and tank for a dose of downtown cool.
3. Delia’s Natalie Suede Flat ($49.50, delias.com) These reasonably priced skimmers come in your choice of black, teal or a lovely dove gray that would look fabulous with a pastel frock.
