We know you've all been there — most of us have experienced (firsthand) that moment during the party when the sky-high heels come off and the pair of flats secretly hidden in your bag get their turn on the dance floor. This holiday season, skip that step altogether and show up wearing some serious party-ready flats instead. Inside there's a style for every aesthetic and festive dress code, from printed loafers to metallic brogues to studded slip-ons. With flats this cute, who would ever miss a heel?
Just in time for Resort 2013, Marni has introduced a classic doctor bag to its accessories lineup — and this one comes complete with a Holiday-ready twist: serious hardware in the form of gleaming jewel and metal appliqués. With its quirky geometric pattern and its structured, masculine silhouette, this bag strikes such a perfect balance between tough and sweet that it may just be the prescription for of-the-moment seasonal chic. Look for the bag ($2,610) in Marni boutiques now or on Marni.com later this month — or click through the slideshow for some of our favorite similar picks.
