Best Bet: Tipsy Ballet Flats


The classic ballet flat is a warm-weather essential — comfortable, but decidedly more demure than throwing on a pair of flip-flops. These new kicks by Kate Spade give the style a sunny update, contrasting natural linen fabric with a lemon-yellow patent-leather toe. The half-inch rubber heel, cushy lining, and leather sole make these a well-made, mood-boosting option for running around the city this spring.
