Marisa Tomei has cracked the code for elegant summer evening wear — IN FLATS. What was once considered impossible is now easily within grasp. Seriously easily. It just takes a few key ingredients, which the actress has down pat, evidenced by her look at the New York premiere of Ricki and the Flash this week. It is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3:

1: Simple, solid ankle-length dress. (Tomei’s is utterly chic and perfect.)

2: A statement necklace. (The most fun.)

3. Elegant flat sandals. (The real winner. You want to walk everywhere and dance all night? Me too!)

That’s a look with major mileage, given you’ll actually be able to transport yourself throughout the night.

Check out our picks to get Marisa Tomei’s perfect look below.

The sleeveless option:

From left: Rosetta Getty midi dress; Tabitha Simmons suede sandals; Chloe gold-toned necklace

The strapless option, slightly more formal:

Clockwise from left: Adam Lippes gown; Paula Mendoza necklace; Rochas slides

The L.A. option (I mean pastels, honestly):

Clockwise from left: Tibi dress; Erickson Beamon necklace; Musa sandals

These are go-anywhere looks. Evening flats forever!
