Comfortable, Affordable Flats for Fall

Stylish comfy and affordable flats for fall

Sponsored by Macy’s and ShopStyle

While I can appreciate a gorgeous pair of heels, we all know flats are the way of life!  Typically I recommend starting with a ballet flat or ones with a slightly pointy toe, but once you’ve got those basics in place, there are many more fun flats to try.  So, today I want to help you grow your selection of flats by sharing three types of cute flats for fall that are all stylish, on trend, affordable, and COMFORTABLE!  I’m excited to partner with Macy’s for today’s post, and I’m even more excited to tell you that almost everything I’m showing today is 30% off with Macy’s VIP sale until 9/22!  Use code VIP at checkout!

Macy’s has an enormous selection of clothing in a good range of sizes, including misses or standard sizing, tall, petite, and plus.  Shopping there is also incredibly wallet friendly as they run sales very often, like the one going on right now.  I’m so excited to tell you about some of these pieces!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes, 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

1. Slip-On Sneakers (in a lighter neutral like taupe or grey)
A pair of white slip-on sneakers is one of my closet staples, but I’ve wanted to add another pair in taupe or grey for a while.  I was delighted to find a few good options at Macy’s that are really comfortable!

The pair above is from Naturalizer, which is a brand I’ve trusted for a while for comfort.  These sneakers did not disappoint!  They have a comfy flexible upper and padded footbed.  There’s a rubber, textured sole for traction.  And, I love the pebbled texture which you can see better on the product page HERE.  I also love this taupe as a soft, subtle neutral.  The main thing to be mindful of is that the upper will wrinkle where the toes bend.  It’s pretty common, but I know some people are very particular about that kind of thing.  They come in 8 colors (!!) which you can see HERE, and are only $55!! I’m wearing size 8.5 in Oatmeal.  The color is different than pictured online–a little lighter than the product page but darker than my pics above.

These sneakers pair well with these camo pants by Style & Co, which is only available at Macy’s and are just $24 right now!  I really, really like the muted print.  They’re lightweight, on the thinner side for jeans, but they are very soft with some stretch.  These run large and loosen up during initial wear, so size down.  I’m wearing size 4 above.  Check them out HERE and grab them on sale!

Lastly, this top is from JM Collection and also exclusive to Macy’s.  It’s really soft and thick with a relaxed swing silhouette, is super comfy and buttery feeling, and comes in 22 colors!  And it’s just $18 on sale!  See all the colors HERE.

2. Loafers
Loafers are timeless and classic, but they’ve definitely been having a moment in the spotlight lately.  They add a chic, polished vibe to any outfit!  For example, I would normally wear this outfit with a pair of white slip-on sneakers or tan ballet flats.  But, trade those for a pair of loafers, and you instantly elevate the outfit.  Loafers are also great flats for work!

These loafers have an incredibly soft upper.  However, there’s not a ton of support in the footbed, so I would recommend using a shoe insert.  They also come in a black suede and are $42 on sale!  See them HERE.  I wear these in size 8.5.

The rest of this outfit is comfy, too!  The olive jeans are another one of Macy’s exclusive items.  They are lightweight and on the thinner side but are very, very soft with a good amount of stretch.  Comfy!  They run large, so size down.  I’m wearing size 4.  They come in 15 colors, and they’re only $24 during the sale!  See them HERE.

The cute olive striped tee has great bold stripes, is fairly thick, and is just ___!  It also comes in a bold black and white stripe, which you can see HERE.  I polished off the look with this white tassel necklace.  If you’ve been in the market for one, I FINALLY found a good option!  See it HERE while it’s only $23.80.

3. Animal Print Mules
Animal print mules are everywhere this season, and these are a great, comfy option by American Rag that are only available at Macy’s.  So, so cute!  The upper is microfiber suede, and the whole shoe is very flexible.  There’s not a ton of padding in the footbed, but they are still pretty comfortable since the sole is soft and flexible.  I really, really like how the muted tone and smaller animal print add a lot to the outfit without being super loud.  These work with tons of colored bottoms for both casual outfits and work outfits.  They also come in solid black and dark olive.  And they’re on sale under $35!  See them HERE.  I wear size 8.5.

Also, if you’re looking for an affordable, COMFY pair of jeans, check these out these Curvy Fit jeans, which are also only at Macy’s.  They’re made of “power sculpt” material that is SO stretchy and fairly thick. 🙌🏽 And only $24!  PEOPLE, GET ON THESE!!!  They come in this pretty medium blue wash (Juan), a dark blue wash, black, and grey HERE.  I’m wearing size 4 in these pics, but I exchanged them for size 2 and like those better–and they’re still roomy with plenty of stretch!

NOTE: I only know the color Juan is super soft and stretchy for these.  I tried another color and they weren’t as soft, though still pretty stretchy.

These are some fun, affordable, comfy shoes you can add to spice up your selection of flats!  I think they’re all great, but my guess is I’ll wear the animal print mules and sneakers the most given my casual, laid back style.  Which flats could you see yourself wearing?  Snag some of these great pieces for 30% off w/ code VIP now until 9/22!
