We know that flats are nothing new, right? They've basically been "in" forever. We've worn them to work and to run around on the weekends for seasons. But trust us when we say that they're coming back in a major way in 2017.
With so many designers coming up with unique iterations lately, they're starting to dominate the style scene. Shopbop even endorsed embellished slides—one of our favorite versions right now—as the shoe of the year. Plus, everyone from Dakota Johnson to Emily Ratajkowski as well as the street style elite have taken to wearing flats, and of course they've come up with the coolest ways to style them. As such, we're looking to them for inspiration on how to wear the footwear in the freshest ways possible.
Scroll on to see how It girls are styling flats this season, and shop our favorite flats at the end.
With intricate floral slides like these, follow Ada Kokosar's lead and use a simple color palette for the rest of your outfit.
Gucci horsebit loafers aren't going anywhere anytime soon. But dare to try them in a color other than black and coordinate with a statement coat like Karla Otto.
On Tamu McPherson: Hermès bag; Isa Arfen skirt.
Take a cue from McPherson and play up the femininity of a slingback with another romantic item, like her tiered ruffle skirt.
Without even a hint of a heel, mules like these are a subtly sleek style you can pair with a bolder look. Try them with a patterned dress and layered blouse underneath like Rachael Wang.
With such a classic silhouette, you can try out a fun pattern or color like Tracey Cheng has done here.
