Get ready for the sunshine and throw on a pair of your favorite summer shoes of 2014. . .flats! Comfortable flats are a low-maintenance women's shoe that can be paired with just about anything! In order to prove just how effortless and versatile flats are (seriously, they are the perfect summer shoes for women!), we've compiled this list of the best ways to wear flats.

We understand that you probably (hopefully) know HOW to wear flats. "Put them on your feet!," would be the obvious solution. So instead of simply stating the obvious, we've done all the research for you and paired different types of flats with different outfits. Whether you're tall or small, anyone can pull off a pair of flats when worn with the right outfit. 

They were coined "flats" because they characteristically have no heel. And just because a flat has to be flat doesn't mean it can't have other diverse feature. There's the ballet flat, the peep-toe flat, the sandal flat, the pointed-toe flat, and the ankle-strap flat. Feeling feminine? Wear a pair of ballet flats with a flower-print sundress. Feeling sexy? How about a pair of high-waisted shorts with a tube-top and some ankle-strap flats? Flats are awesome because they compliment just about any ensemble and they're absolutely effortless to wear.

 Depending on your budget, you can find flats for a steal of a deal, and if you're looking for a more comfortable, everyday flat with an arch, you can find that, too! So read on ladies! Pull out the flats from your closet and find the best way for you to look stylish and chic this summer!
