Like Disco Balls for Your Feet! 11 Glitter-Bombed Flats for Fall

Flipflops are out, and sparkly shoes are in.

As we pack away our summer clothes and say a solemn goodbye to our trusty flip-flops, it’s time to turn our attention to that other shoe constant in our lives—the ever-reliable flat. Here for me when I’m blistered and aching from my beloved heels, flats are my Renaissance shoe, as there’s really no solution they are incapable of providing. Comfortable? Check. Practical for longs days and lots of walking/commuting/chasing kids at a park? Check. Stylish? Check. Portable? You betcha.

From mules to Mary Janes, a flat shoe can clinch your outfit like a hitting a grand slam when the bases are loaded—but if you really want to win the World Series, you opt for the glitter flat. Like a disco ball on your feet, the venerable glitter flat takes your outfit from zero to a hundred in three seconds flat. Whether you've chosen boyfriend jeans and a tee or a pencil skirt and blazer, the sparkly accessory is the exact amount of fun you want to add to any outfit. And thanks to the slew of designers taking notice of this trend, we’ve got a treasure trove of options for you to check out.
