The ballet flat can be worn with a wide range of outfits. Being simple, chic, and versatile, they are a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. But how should you style them? We are going to show you how to wear ballet flats for every occasion.
Ballet flats are designed to make the legs look longer and create an elegant silhouette. There are not many occasions that they are not welcome at. They can be worn to the office, to dinner with friends, or even to the beach. Ballerina flats look best when you have some skin showing! This means wearing shorts, above the knee skirts, and cropped trousers.
When wearing flats with jeans it’s important to remember that your jeans should not touch the shoe. Leave a bit of ankle showing. This allows your shoes to do their work and accentuate your legs! Either stick to neutral tones, perhaps wearing a light coloured knit with your jeans, and shoes in a matching shade! Or make a statement, wear a simple t-shirt but accessorize brightly with red ballet flats, and a matching bag or belt.
When it comes to wearing ballerinas with skirts, floaty skirts are definitely the best option! Choosing a floaty skirt adds to the feminine feel of the ballet flats. If wearing a neutral coloured skirt, be adventurous with shoe choice, go for a bright colour or a print. You may fancy a leopard or animal print pattern here if feeling a bit on the wild side!
Summer calls for hotter weather and fewer clothes, which means it’s the perfect time to break out your favourite pair of ballet flats. Dark denim shorts go fabulously with navy flats, brighten a neutral look with some coral shoes, or choose a delicate pink to go with your summer dresses.
Winter is the most tricky time to be wearing ballerina shoes. As a shoe, they leave your foot quite exposed but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear them! On those slightly milder days you can wear your shoes with skin toned tights or socks.
It’s important to look smart and professional at work. Whether your office dresses ‘business casual’ or completely ‘casual,’ you can never go wrong with a simple flat shoe. Flats are such an ideal work shoe. More formal coloured ballerinas are perfect for both a day in the office, and the after work event. When wearing flats with a suit it is best to keep it simple and sophisticated, we recommend sticking to a classic black flat.
