The one thing

Fun Flats

Casual shoes in citrus hues, when flip-flops just won’t do

Summer weekends are made for walking in the sand. But during the week, life remains replete with corporate obligations, from business meetings to late nights at the office. Sadly, when you’re on the clock, your toes — and that amazing teal pedicure you just got — must stay under wraps. Airy sandals are often just not an option till the workday’s done. So slip on Allessandro Dell Acqua’s “Bow Tie” ballet flats, made from cork and trimmed in citrus grosgrain ribbon. They’re darling, and dressy enough for lunch with a potential client. The lemon pair is perforated, and absolutely office-friendly, while the lime and tangerine are studded, taking you easily into a party-filled evening.
