The right pair of shoes can take any look from blah to va-va-voom. But you don’t have to endure the severe discomfort of stilettos to look chic and sophisticated. These sexy flats are every bit as glamorous as their sky-high counterparts.
Classy cap toes
Cap toes are very in right now — and for good reason. This simple and classic embellishment adds a pop of style to otherwise average footwear. Plus, when you throw in a little colour-blocking, as is the case with these black and cream flats (aldoshoes.com, $50), you’re sure to make a chic fashion statement the next time you head into the office.
Sexy animal prints
When you think of sexy, va-va-voom fashion, chances are animal prints come to mind in one way or another. But does wearing a tiger print blouse or a snakeskin print skirt take you a little too far outside your comfort zone? That’s OK. You can sport the trend in a subtle manner with these sexy leopard print Seychelles “Birch” flats (nordstrom.com, $104). Animal print shoes make for a bold but fun fashion statement you can feel totally confident showing off.
Every woman needs a little glitter in her wardrobe, and shoes are an easy way to add a touch of sparkle to an otherwise plain ensemble. These silver sequin ballet pumps (hm.com, $30) will make a cute and budget-friendly addition to your wardrobe. Wear them with everything from a little black dress to a pair of jeans for a fun and flirty pop of glamour.
The “little black shoe”
A sleek black shoe is a staple of every woman’s wardrobe, and when that easy-to-match shoe is flat and comfortable, you know you’ve struck gold. These suede and patent leather flats (shoes.com, $219) offer the sexy, pointed-toe look of many office-chic options but with the comfort of a cushioned insole and a very low heel. They’ll make the perfect addition to any outfit, no matter the colour or style.

Going for a flat style doesn’t mean you have to look any less elegant or professional at the office. The slight shimmer, pretty buckle, glamorous print and classic round toe of these Isolá “Britt II” flats (nordstrom.com, $93) make them an easy way to class up all your favourite work ensembles.
Don’t shy away from playful embellishments and bright colours when selecting a pair of flats. So many vibrant shades and bold styles can be found, there’s no need to hold back. The cute straps and unique hue of these Kessler leather flats (ninewest.ca, $120), for example, make them a stylish choice for all kinds of occasions.
