Nothing slows down a Summer commute like four-inch heels. Hot sticky days require an easier way to run around the city or hang outdoors on the lawn, so we're trading in our stilettos for a more functional set of flats that, we promise, are just as stylish. This lineup still delivers on the season's biggest trends — think metallics, perfect Summer stripes, brights, and pops of print — and lends polish and a little personality to everything from pencil skirts and button-downs to your sweet date-night dress. We've done the work for you — just click through to shop the flat-out most stylish ways to go without heels this Summer.
