How to Wear Ballet Flats for Spring

So you have been told how classic ballet flats are and how they will merge perfectly with your wardrobe? But need a little help with how exactly to do that? Bring on cherri bellini’s guide to wearing ballet flats – and not looking plain!

 Boyfriend jeans: A favourite at the moment for a reason, these comfy as jeans will work oh so well with the classic nature of the ballet flat. Et viola! Comfort and style!

With summer dresses:
A total no brainer! Ballet flats were made for summery dresses to finish off a ladylike outfit with class. If you go a patterned dress, keep it simple with a neutral ballet flat, or colour pop a pair against a white dress for an easy on trend spring look.

Maxi skirts: One of springs necessities, the maxi skirt is perfect for transitioning out of the cooler months (and hiding white legs), whilst giving your wardrobe a summer spin. The perfectly chic accompaniment to a billowing maxi is an elegant ballet flat – and if it gets a little warm during the day, knot one side of your maxi and show off your shoes!

skinny jeans: Can I hear you say “model off duty!”? One of the easiest on trend looks to pull off, just the lovely Miranda Kerr, at the moment is the effortless M.O.D look and all you need are your trusty ballet flats, skinny jeans and a bold scarf or top. You can work skinny jeans and ballet flats in any way you like to keep your wardrobe fresh and comfy – think t-shirts, plaid shirts, kaftans or leather biker jackets. Endless possibilities!

With shorts. Another spring staple (when we have been in the sun for a few days) is a pair of denim shorts. When it isn’t warm enough for sandals, or when an occasion calls for something a bit dressier than beach casual, team your ballet flats with denim shorts and an oversized t-shirt tucked into your belt. Easy, chic and super comfy.

The Statement Stiletto

Talk about knock-out! Make the shoe the focus piece and keep accessories to a minimum. We love this heel with a shift dress and simple accessories for a dressy Christmas party or a night out. pink-shift Go for a more casual look (did somebody say drinks with the girls?) and pair with jeans and a silk shirt. And there you have it!jeans

The Bright Wedge

Take your wedge through its paces with an awesome race day appropriate outfit, or rock this pretty, slimline wedge with a floaty summer dress. Wedges are the easiest shoe to dress up and down – so have fun! Outdoor parties, ’tis the season, the wedge is the perfect way to get some height without sinking into the grass! Go for a a slim line wedge for a dressier look with the benefit of the comfort of the wedge.

Pair your wedge with a bright dress for the ultimate summer outfit which would work for coffee catch-ups, lunches and would look lovely for a Christmas day BBQ. Equally the slim line style and elegant look of this wedge dresses up perfectly with a long play-suit or dress and up-do for an outing like the the races or a chic summer party.polo

The Court Shoe

Heels don’t have to be sky high. There are some beautiful low heeled shoes available these days and if you aren’t comfortable in your shoes you won’t enjoy yourself! Stay low for understated sophistication for events like after work drinks or that dreaded ‘smart casual’ theme.

We love this tan court shoe paired back with a simple colour scheme like olive green, black and beige, but will work with so many different summer colours – think blues, pinks and of course white! Don’t feel like this shoe will only work for the corporate things hanging in your wardrobe either. For the very reason you love them for work (think comfort, style and easy to pair back with all your clothes) this little baby will rock an off-duty look too.
