In the heat of summer, everyone is looking for that one carefree, fashionable outfit to wear.  Pairing these three items can set you apart from the crowd whether it be a day on the boardwalk or a night on the town.

FLAT FORMS - The notorious flat form is shorter than its sister, the platform, but has the same desirability.  This slight curved heel will give your relaxed summer duds a boost.

MAXI DRESS - In 80 degree weather, no one wants to spend a long time putting an outfit together.  The maxi dress is this season's simple staple piece.  Choose a solid color or opt for stripes and prints for a kick.
