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.
