When it comes to combining style and comfort, nothing beats a chic pair of flats. So, what do you do when the little black flats you've been sporting all winter suddenly look heavy and opressive in the summer sun? Sandals just won't do for work or for pairing with dress pants, so aim for the middle ground.

Peep toe flats have the chic, dressy style of regular flats, but with a warm weather twist. Showing just a little toe will make peep toe flats look miles more appropriate in warm weather than their closed-toe counterparts. Don't have a pair of peep toe flats to call your own? Here are a few suggestions to help you find a pair that fits your style and your budget.

These Open Toe Flats from Dolce Vita (right) are a warm weather wardrobe staple. The simple, sleek shape is classic and they come in a range of colors, so you are sure to find a pair that matches your favorite fashions. My pick is the glossy Nude Patent. Such a gorgeous color!

Looking for a way to spice up your work week dress pants? I think that the Exchange by Charles David "Party" Flats (below) would look fabulous peeking out from under a pair of summer-weight wool trousers. They look stunning in Green-- which is the most expensive pair, of course! Prefer Black, Dark Brown, or Red? You're in luck. You can catch these adorable shoes, in every color except Green, on sale for half price at!

These sweet, basket-weave patent leather flats from Exchange by Charles David caught my eye immediately. They are unique and fresh, but still dressy thanks to the patent leather construction. They are lovely in Black, but the buttery Yellow pair is to die for. Click through to see the different colors.

Eyelet dresses are all the rage for spring and summer, but the girly-girl fabric isn't for everyone. I like my eyelet in small doses. These "Cassie" Flats from Report are a perfect way to take part in the trend without being overwhelmed by it.
