Maybe you want an everyday shoe that will look sharp and keep you comfortable, or perhaps you want something totally appropriate for evening. Either way, you’re ready to retire your teetering heels--even for just a moment--and purchase a pair of flats. Good call! Your feet will thank you. Get ready to search Polyvore for all sorts of flats, including ballet, pointed-toe or even d'Orsay.

Ballet flats are considered a classic and with good reason--they’re incredibly chic and the elasticized sides and back make for easy slip on. J.Crew and Lanvin both make beautiful ballerina-inspired flats in a variety of colorways. A fun styling tip for this shoe: If you’re going for a look that’s modern but still dressy, try wearing them with a pair of skinny jeans and a structured blazer. Even though the shoe is on the casual side, the blazer helps button things up.

On the other end of the flats spectrum is the d’Orsay style. With beautiful lines, a pointy toe and flat sole, it’s practically a piece of artwork in the footwear space, and designer Jenni Kayne may be responsible for its surge in popularity. With so many styles and hues to choose from, this pointy-toe slipper looks fabulous with everything from trousers to skirts and even dresses.
