Ballet flats are everywhere, so what makes these by Tieks so fabulous?
They’re made from Italian leather – though if you don’t want leather, Tieks are also available in vegan styles.
You can fold them in half (so that they’re about the size of a man’s wallet) to carry them in your purse or tote or pack them in a suitcase.
They’re super comfy, thanks to their cushioned instep and no-skid rubber soles and they’re available in lots of bright colors.
Tieks range in price from $175-$295, depending on color and style.
Consider them a worthy splurge.

A natural-looking pop of color
After a winter like this, don’t you think it’s time for some roses in your cheeks?
New, from Clinique: Cheek Pop, a blush that’s supposed to give you a just-pinched natural-looking boost.
Available in four shades: Berry Pop, Ginger Pop, Peach Pop and Plum Pop. And that, Clinique says, means there’s a shade for every skin tone.
The best thing of all? The imprint on the blush looks like a flower.
Price: $21 at department store Clinique counters. To find one: clinique.com.
For women, borrowed from boys
There are many benefits to having a man in your life – including his dress shirts.
For many women, few things are more comfortable than wearing a man’s dress shirt; it’s roomy, it’s cool against your skin and it’s long.
So take a look at Claridge + King, an entire clothing line for women based on men’s dress shirts.
Founded by sisters Laurann Claridge and Lizbeth King, the line features sexy cotton boyfriend-style shirts, fitted shirts appropriate for weekend wear or important business meetings and, maybe best of all, dresses.
Also in the collection: sleepwear inspired by menswear (think boxers for gals), T-shirts and lounge wear.
Button-down shirts start at $132. Most dresses are in the $180 range.
Claridge + King also offers accessories with boho flair.
