Okay girls, we’re getting older and as hard as it is to start being more professional, it’s about that time. If you haven’t already, at some point you will be standing in a store filled with Ann Taylor suits and Chinos dress pants, and you will come to the sad realization that buying appropriate fall clothes doesn’t include a $100 crop top from Free People.
As you start to venture into the world of blazers and pencil skirts, you will be enticed by the idea of wearing shiny black pumps to work. I mean, what could be more professional looking than an awesome pair of heels? The answer to that question is...just about everything.
If you already went ahead and bought that pair of heels, we will try not to rub salt in your slowly-healing blisters. You learned your lesson the hard way and now you can add another pair of unwearable shoes to your closet. But now that you've gotten that out of your system, it's time to buck up and do the sensible thing: invest in a good pair of flats.
The Vintage Solution
Flats are the working gal's shoe, but they are so much more than that. With unlimited colors, textures, styles and prints, flats have become as stylish as ever. And they are comfortable! Yes, you know you are getting older when you trade comfort for style, but I promise, this isn't the biggest compromise you'll make.
In terms of choosing the right flats, you want to stay away from those top designer ones that have the fancy logos. It isn’t worth spending the money on the obnoxious platinum or gold Tory Burch embellishments that are now exclusively worn by preppy suburban moms and sorority girls from Michigan.
The look for this Autumn is simple and chic. It's all about simplicity and elegance. Just imagine if a Parisian girl walking down the Champs-Élysées would wear what you're about to buy, then decide. Our pick for accomplishing this goal is to invest in a pair of Yosi Samra flats.
Yosi Samra flats are reasonably priced, ranging from $60 to $100, have simple styles and their own unique touch. However, the most important part is that they are comfortable! These flats are the perfect solution to long work days, airplanes and casual nights out.
