Personally, candy-colored kitten heels and strappy sandals are my absolute favorite part of spring. Like most of us, I'm learning to cope with the loss of these little joys in life, amidst the ongoing chaos of the world at large. But as one must in such circumstances, my attention has turned elsewhere, and I'm learning to appreciate a category of shoes I often overlook: flats. Although the idea of flat footwear had reappeared on my radar shortly after trading in cars for city sidewalks, my inclinations to prioritize form over function stubbornly remained. I had yet to be broken in and blistered by horror stories of impractical footwear, though I knew my time would come. I just didn't expect it to look like this. With no more excuses to dress up, dressing down has become our only option altogether. In an effort to cling to a sliver of normalcy, I'll be starting with the below interpretations of fashionable flats.

Ruched Slip-Ons
Pair with leggings and a sweater to invoke a feeling of polish if you, like me, desperately miss the sensation.
ZARA Ruched Flats, $80
STAUD Tuli Flat, $295
Fashion Flip-Flops
Slip these on with a matching sweatsuit to manifest Olsen-rich energy, well below The Row price range.
ATP Melitto Sandals, $350
VAGABOND Ronnie Sandals, $110
Square-Toe Loafers
Jazz up your Nike crew socks with a classic pair of loafers that will literally never go out of style.
VINCE CAMUTO Brynna Loafers, $48
SAM EDELMAN Lior Loafers, $129
Scrunchie Sandals
Turn your PJs into a moment with a unique pair of scrunchie slides.
MANGO Ruched Strap Sandals, $100
SENSO Harley II Slides, $78
Gloved Ballerinas
Toe cleavage can be a touchy subject. Avoid the conversation altogether with a chic pair of glove flats that will go with anything, even in quarantine.
CHARLES & KEITH Ballerina Flats, $43
MADEWELL Cory Flats, $27
