When it comes to shoes, our options seem to be limitless. But is there one shoe style that is at once comfortable, stylish, and able to be worn with most (if not all) of our wardrobes? Well, yes – ballet flats.
It comes as no surprise that the shoe worn by Kate Moss and Sienna Miller for the majority of the noughties has come back in a roaring fashion, alongside the Y2K revival that has taken over the internet in recent months. While a good handful of those trends are likely to fade away as quickly as they have been introduced, ballet flats are being considered a classic staple by the fashion elites – they are a piece you can repeatedly rely on.
Having been championed by the likes of Chloé, JW Anderson, Baum Und Pferdgarten and Dior, it is clear that ballet flats are well on their way to becoming the staple shoe of the year. This sudden popularity is in no doubt due to their simplicity and versatility – able to be styled with anything, the shoe lends itself to your favourite denim as well as it does all your dresses. However, It wouldn’t be right to discuss this trend without covering the style’s extreme comfort and ease – two things which we have actively sought more than ever over the past 18 months. Slipper-like in form and function, this style is sure to take you through the day and into the night with utmost ease.
Available in countless iterations – think strappy ankles, square toes, iridescent and in every colour imaginable – there is a pair out there for everyone; simply slip them on with wide-leg trousers or dresses for an effortless yet summer-appropriate (and, most importantly, comfortable) ensemble.
