If you think that flats can't be stylish, designer Jenni Kayne may change your mind. Her versatile D'Orsay flat has quickly become a fashion favourite, and has been spotted on celebrities like Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, and Mandy Moore. The sleek signature flat is available in a rainbow of finishes and colours like pink suede, black crocodile, printed silk wool, and gold lizard, with 11 new styles recently added for Spring 2013.
Prices range from $395 - $610 a pair, but that doesn't mean that you can't get the look for less. More affordable labels are catching on to the fabulous flat, and brands like Chinese Laundry and Steve Madden have released similar versions, ensuring stylish flats for all.
