I was relived to read in this weekend’s Times Magazine that flats are having a moment. A lasting moment, if fashion writer Anna Murphy is to be believed.
She’s gone as far as to dump all her Louboutins and replace them with comfortable flats.
“Flats, the right flats that is, have attained a kind of permaglamour that two years, or even a year ago, would have seemed unthinkable,” she writes.
I’m not sure the Nicholas Kirkwood geometric loafers she mentions would be practical for running around after toddler (they cost £520).
Best stick with some cheap Converse or ballet pumps, which by the way should have an almond-shaped toe, according to Vogue.co.uk, rather than rounded.
Here is our wish list of sub £100 summer flats…
For that holiday feeling, even though holidays just aren’t what they were.
I ordered some of these myself in one of those crazy day time nap shopping sprees.
Classic shape. New colour.
An elegant version of the much loved yet always slightly lanky looking Converse trainer.
£35, Zalando.co.uk I discovered this website while buying sunglasses the other day (more on this later). It’s great, and there are various voucher codes floating around the internet, which give you up to 15 per cent off.
Pastel green trainers. Why not?
