How to Rock Flatforms

 If we have one bone to pick with summer, it’s that so many of the season’s most iconic looks are hard to pull off—without a little know how, that is. Our “How Tos,” which we'll post all summer long, are here to help. The second look to conquer: this year’s It sandal, the flatform.

Flatforms are easy to wear but hard to style. These three look options—modern, summery, and sexy—would work well from the shoe up:

White Flatforms
Who isn’t a fan of a sold and classic black and white outfit?  Pair white flatforms with wide leg black pants and a loose black dolman sleeved top for a modern look.

Peachy Pink Flatforms
Orange and pink are standard summer shades, so why not pair a colored pair with a matching skirt and crop top combo for a flirty seasonal look.

Metallic Gold Flatforms
This sexy and rock-inspired look reminds us of Betty Davis or Blondie. Wear gold statement flatforms for a night out on the town with a lingerie-style dress or romper.
