I don’t know whether it’s the obsession with Grey’s Anatomy that I’ve recently developed, or the fact that I’m on a dont-wear-heels spree since a little while, but when I started to write this post about the different styles of flats you should own, ‘flat lined’ was the first title that came to my mind. Anyway, getting back to the point: For the longest time I have assumed that every time someone said they were wearing ‘flats’ the only thing that immediately came to my mind were plain Jane pumps, maybe even slippers. But ever since I’ve been on this flats-spree I’ve learnt that there’s so much more to my shoe cupboard than just those. Apart from the 50 something pairs of shoes I own, I couldn’t resist an evening out to go and have a look at shoe shops that I knew would make me happy. The end result? 4 more pairs of shoes.. well, flats, for me. Here’s my list of different kind of flats each of you fashionistas must have!
The casual pumps
These need to introduction: we have them, we wear them, we love them. The simple pumps are everyone’s go-to in dire times or for daily wear. When in doubt, bring out the pumps.
The slippers, also known as chappals
Gladiator flats are a style statement by themselves. They’re super chic, fun to wear and go with almost everything you own. They’re not over the top and yet, not understated either. Personally, I think if paired correctly these can give any other style a run for its’ money.
A little desi
Nothing beats the tadka of adding a slight desi touch to the overall look. I love throwing on mojdis to my plain white shirt, or flaunting my bejeweled heels on my not-so-bejewled outfit – why not do the same for the flats too? Always keep a pair handy for that slightly off-beat look; who knows, it might just become your new style statement. Think I missed out on anything? Liked this post?
