Shop this season's lineup of chic flats to update your shoe wardrobe

Flats are very much like that one good friend you have whom you can always count on (think your BFF/designated driver on Friday nights/shopping buddy)—totally trustworthy, comfortable to an extent, yet impeccably stylish. You can't go wrong with a pair of flats no matter where you go, whether keeping it casual with easy slides for a day out, or sprucing your ensemble up with embellished mules for the evening.

Trend-wise, it's all about hardware and textures this season, jazzing up flats including sandals, slides and even loafers for a dressy countenance. Take your pick from multicoloured fringe (Pretty Ballerinas), touch-worthy suede (Prada) or even a dash of bling (Roger Viviers, Giuseppe Zanotti) to complement that new dress in your closet; while partygoers can opt for glittery ballet flats by French Sole and seriously cute polka-dotted perspex pumps by Malone Souliers that will guarantee double takes. For those who can't resist a classic silhouette or two, take on Salvatore Ferragamo's versatile collapsible-heel loafers or chic strappy flats by Jimmy Choo that will go with any outfit.
