The Dress Edit

These Spring Designer Flats Are So Chic You’ll Want To Retire Your Sneakers

I adore wearing sneakers with dresses so it’s hard to imagine them sitting in a cupboard collecting dust. However, with so many gorgeous pairs of spring designer flats out there for the season ahead, I really don’t see my beloved kicks getting much airtime on the footwear lineup!  So, maybe you’re looking to generally elevate your shoe game with some versatile styles for the warmer weather. Perhaps you need a chic pair of flats to go with a new dress for a special occasion. Either way, with designs by Ferragamo, Loeffler Randall, Gianvito Rossi, and more curated into this irresistible edit, everything you need is just a quick scroll away.

Spring Designer Flats To Wear From Work To Weekend Days

When shopping for spring designer flats, I’m all about versatile styles I can pair with every type of dress in my closet. Therefore, flats that go just as well with my Monday-Friday silhouettes as they do with my off-duty looks get an immediate, yes. For example, the Bacall leather loafers by Zimmermann. Simple to slip your feet into and feel instantly chic, these expertly crafted, black and white shoes deserve a top spot on your rotation. Pair yours with formal black or white dresses for corporate days, or slip them on with relaxed mini and midi dresses on the weekend. I recommend the denim Outlaw dress by Show Me Your Mumu and the woven raffia mini tote by Stella McCartney for the latter. The perfect ensemble for stylish coffee dates and brunch plans.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for classic slip-on shoes that go with everything you own, the Landry woven leather ballet flats by Loeffler Randall are the ones. Firstly, the timeless dark brown colorway is a great spring alternative to black. Being ever so slightly lighter, they’ll look amazing with both floral day dresses and little black evening ones. Style yours with the Haleigh dress by Doen and O Pochette crochette raffia shoulder bag by Oscar De La Renta. It’ll be a go-to outfit all spring and summer long.

Mary Jane Spring Designer Flats

Mary Jane’s are back and proving to be some of the most beautiful spring designer flats out there. For example, the Swan-Lake lace flats by Jeffrey Campbell. These stunning black lace Mary Jane style shoes are as comfortable as they are chic. A must-have for any spring lineup, especially when styled with cute bags and mini dresses like the Sloane double bow pleated mini by Sachin & Babi and La Medusa bag by Versace.

Finally, the Carla leopard print ballet flats by Gianvito Rossi will elevate any dress you pair them with. Try a mixed-print look this spring and slip into these shoes with the Matchmaker belted paisley-print mini dress by Zimmermann. Then, tie the look together with the tan Oskan Moon leather shoulder bag by Isabel Marant.
