Flat Shoes: The Summer 2014 Styles To Die For

If flats are your kind of footwear then this shopping edit will have you head over heels. This summer the look is clunky, embellished-to-within-an-inch and to be worn with every outfit.

Ugly sandals (think Birkenstocks), sporty sliders, skater plimsoles, flatforms, loafers and slippers are just a few options and the vibe is casual, comfortable and kooky.

Your flats need to say slip-on, easy and effortless - despite the fact you've probably shopped long and hard to get the perfect pair. The Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Illincic and Ashish catwalks showcased some killer styles but you can get a wow-ing flat without the hefty price tag.

You'll be living in these beauties all summer (that does justify spending big on a designer pair of pool sliders - MGSM's are THE BOMB) so don't panic buy. Check out the high street and Instagram for some style inspiration.

Here's a few looks to get you started - it's all about quirky detailing, multi-colour ways, texture, tread and (to reiterate) comfort.

Loving your feet is a must this season, a pedicure and a statement pair of flat shoes/ sandals will take you far. Click through this gallery to see looks from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections - be bold and steer clear of anything too simple, you want OTT fabulousness.
