I'm 58, Always Wear Flat Shoes, and Will Never Retire These 6 Styles

Asia's Tech News Daily

We routinely turn to Janet Gunn, the 58-year-old influencer behind The Grateful Gardenia, for sartorial guidance. And while age should have nothing to do with your style choices, we’re always interested in her fashion viewpoint specifically given her experience over the years building a well-rounded wardrobe. Today, we wanted to gain further insight into some of the go-to shoe silhouettes she swears by. And while she wears a variety, there’s one key style she wears on repeat and will never retire. Yes, flat shoes, given their comfortable and versatile nature.

Below, you’ll uncover the six flat shoe styles Gunn will never give up, complete with styling notes from her. And if you’re inspired in adding one of her must-have silhouettes into your arsenal as well, we also rounded up chic styles to consider if you’re shopping at the moment.
