Fresh & flirty flatforms

Fresh & flirty flatforms

5Make it metallic

Flat but definitely not frumpy, these metallic, funky flatform sandals look great with everything from denim cutoffs and lacy tanks to strapless sundresses.

Zappos Couture, $198

Look effortlessly chic and comfortable in these Elizabeth and James leather flatforms with braided rope detailing. We love the minimalist design and versatility of these instant classics.

7Ravishing in red, $155

You'll be the toast of whatever summer soiree you attend in these sexy peep-toe sandals in a sultry shade of red. These flatforms have it all: height, look-at-me hue and glamour.

Spice up a laid-back look with these Joe's Jeans flatforms in distressed leather with buckle closures. Add some edge (and lots of height) to a neutral look with these notice-me sandals.
