Chic Summer Flats for Days When You Need More Than a Sandal
Loafers, mary janes, mules, and more.
Though summer is the season of sandals, every now and then you need a shoe with a bit more substance and structure. Whether for style or formality purposes, a polished closed-toe variety can often be necessary, especially now that many offices are opening back up. It's hard to find non-sandal options that are still warm-weather friendly while still avoiding an uncomfortable high heel. From loafers to mary janes, mules to ballet flats, we've rounded up 24 pairs of chic summer flats that can carry you from the office to a park picnic to outdoor happy hour in style (and comfort).
From timeless pairs from Church's to more affordable options from G.H. Bass, we guarantee you'll keep these in your closet forever.
A simple closet staple that adds the perfect contrast to menswear-inspired basics.
Basically an elevated slipper, mules are a great option for when you're running out the door and need something to slip on in a hurry.
