Two-Piece-Flats

 

 

Meet your wardrobe’s starting lineup: the d’Orsay flat. There’s been a resurgence of the two piece silhouette and we’re not mad about it at all. It’s definitely a classic in the making and the perfect transitional style for summer into fall.

 

Here’s a little history lesson: The shoe style was originally worn by men in the 19th century. A French solider Count Alfred d’Orsay was looking to improve the footwear designs worn by the French military. He wanted to create comfortable cut out sides for wider feet (we feel you, Alfred). He then added a pointed toe and voilà – high society French women immediately took a liking. And the rest is history.
