For An Outdoor Concert
We know, we know, heels of any kind don't belong in the audience of a raucous concert, but for an outdoor summer jam, we think these will give you a lift and keep you comfy. Throw a light blazer or sweater over your favorite summer dress and you're all set.

For A Gallery Day
Checking out art galleries in NYC can require a fair bit of walking (and also a lot of personal style). Dress up your summer half-day look with a pair of flatforms that will let you do that art tour you've been meaning to go on forever (without breaking an ankle).

For The Office
Your summer office look can stay chic, while being a bit more casual than usual. We suggest picking a few dressy pieces (like printed pants or a structured vest) and keeping it cool with a T-shirt and (you guessed it!) transitional flatforms to take you from day to night.
