The Best Nude Flats to Wear With Skinny Jeans This Fall

If I’ve learned one thing over the past year and a half, it’s that I’m really not a fan of heels. Sure, I own a ton, but after trading in my going-out shoes for slippers and slides during the height of the pandemic, I’ve found that—even as life begins to return to normal—I’m a pretty big fan of shoes that are actually comfortable, even for a night out. Lucky for me, cute flats are a thing. Flats can come in a variety of styles. There are classic ballerina flats, trendy chunky loafers, and plenty of shapes and silhouettes in between—flat mules, anyone? And while I personally like to own a rainbow array of shoe options at any given time, there’s no denying that nude flats are a great everyday, go-with-anything style. Now that I’m trading in my flat sandals and slides for more autumn-appropriate footwear, I rounded up 25 pairs of the best nude flats of the season below. Did I mention these look especially great with a pair of skinny jeans?

So into this pleated square toe.

These are perfect everyday shoes, IMO.

These square-toe mules are a minimalist’s dream.

Soft, suede flats can go with pretty much anything.

The tonal buckles on these D’Orsay Flats are a nice touch.

These T-strap flats are so chic. 

I’m getting Chanel vibes from these black cap-toe flats.

These Prada bow flats are timeless, making them totally worth the investment.

The chunky chains on these are too good, and the cozy shearling lining is the icing on the cake.

Here’s a more affordable option if chains are your thing.

The buckled strap makes these basic mules, well, not so basic.

The kind of flats that will go with everything in your closet. 

Excuse me while I drool over these Bottega loafers.

How cozy are these?

So chic, so comfy.

These would look just as great with wide-leg trousers as they would with skinny jeans.

Suede is always a “yes” in my book.

Um, I’m buying these immediately.

These affordable flats feel very new Bottega.

TBH, I only want to wear shearling accessories this fall.

I love ballet flats with a bit of structure.

Leave it to Mansur Gavriel to put out perfect minimalist loafers.
