Dear Anne, After a terrible foot injury, I can no longer wear heels over three inches and feel stable. I used to wear heels with lacy tops and track pants, but when I tried flats I felt stumpy. How can I elevate my sporty chic look?—Mave H.

Dear Mave, I’m so sorry to hear about your injury, but so glad you asked. The flat shoe dilemma is an evergreen fashion challenge for so many women, myself included. The key is in the pairings: A low heel or a slight platform shoe go well with a cropped, slim pant or mid-length skirt. To balance the sport element add a dressier piece so it all looks purposeful, not sloppy. Here are some ideas to get your wheels turning.
