You've been paying attention and you've finally pulled your flares out of hiding or gone and bought a new pair in time for Spring. Now, they've been hanging in your closet for a couple of weeks while you rustle up the courage to wear them out to brunch — but you just realized you haven't the slightest clue what footwear works with your new purchase.

The more we talk to our friends, the clearer it is that this is a pretty widespread concern. A stiletto isn't right, a sneaker doesn't work (unless we want the hem to trail in the street!), and our tall boots are meant for tucking our skinnies into. The trick is finding a shoe with a little lift that's comfy enough to wear all day — bonus points if it's got a '70s vibe, too! Our picks: look for clogs, boots with chunky heels and supportive platforms, and open-toed booties and wedged sandals that'll easily transition to warmer weather. It's easier than you think, especially since we've pulled 25 styles that'll do the job right here. Just scroll to shop your favorites. Source: Mark Iantosca
