Today I am stepping out of my comfort zone, literally and figuratively! Tried and true I am a heels girl, all the way. I gravitate towards them and I feel like I always look better when I wear them. Usually if I am wearing flats, I feel short and dumpy – it’s all in my head of course because it’s a change from the norm. Trendy flats are all over the place – whether they’re leopard print or snakeskin print I am seeing them all over. But for me the question of, how do I wear these trendy flats needed to be answered!
An idea popped into my head a few weeks ago I saw Jaymie wearing hers and I fell in love with the whole outfit. So happy she linked several pair because I grabbed this pair and could not be happier! DSW has great prices and a great selection. These beauties arrived and the leather feels like butter. The color is amazing as well.
I tried copying Jaymie’s look but with a few modifications. Then I feel down the proverbial rabbit hole and kept styling them all the ways! A pile of clothes on the bed later and I think I have found a way to wear these babies and make peace with trendy flats on me. Here’s how I suggest styling them if you’re a heels wearing woman like me!
Idea #1 With Wide Leg Pants
I probably need to be a foot taller to really pull this off but it is extremely comfortable.
Idea #2 With Faux Leather Leggings
This seriously feels like I am wearing pajamas. My faux leather leggings are so stretchy and the shoes are like slippers. I call this a major win!
Idea #3 With Denim
I think a cropped denim is the way to go for me. I like seeing just that little bit of skin – helps show off the shoes, no?!
Idea #4 With a Skirt
As long as the skirt is on the short side I am pretty comfortable with the flats. A longer skirt, on me, has the potential to look too matronly.
Thoughts on Trendy Flats
These flats may not be as “trendy” as I think as they are neutrals after all! Whether you’re wearing leopard or snake print, python print or whatever print tickles your fancy I hope you got some ideas today!
