Looks like we can finally, finally step outside in warmish weather attire.. which means flats sans tights can replace our winter boots. But heel-less shoes are tricky, as they can make you look stumpy and awkward if worn with the wrong outfit.
Thankfully, cropped pants are back on our radar this season, and are ideal for pairing with flats like a not boring metallic pair ($62). Show off your ankles in some slouchy rolled pants ($20, was $59.50) to elongate your foot and prevent the stump factor. (Stay away from long pants that bunch at the bottom, as this will make you appear shorter.) A black lightweight cardigan ($168) keeps the look laid back while key pieces of jewelry like a vintage-inspired necklace ($325) and big ring ($195) pop against the black.
