3 Awesome Outfits For Our Favorite Summer Sandal

You've already fallen in love with summer's easiest shoe, the wedge, but now it's time to say hello to its sassy little sister — the flatform. Yes, just as comfortable but a bit more structured, the flatform's got all the wearability of a flat, the height of a wedge, and a '90s-throwback look that pairs perfectly with floral dresses or…anything.
So, we've put together three awesome seasonal looks that highlight the shoe at its best. From the office to MoMA to a Governor's Island concert, this is one pair you can actually wear day to night without worrying about twisting an ankle.

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.
