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.

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?
