Contrary to popular belief, ballet flats are NOT boring. They’re classic, yes. But they can also be worn in a variety of ways to dress up or dress down a look. It’s not always about the goody goody outfit or matching it with a plain old Sunday dress. Ballet flats are my ultimate favorite form of shoe, and today I’m gonna show why. Here’s my take on how they can be worn in 5 different ways.
Even if your fashion sense is on the edgy side, you can wear ballet flats to add a bit of contrast and irony to your look. It’s an unexpected way to add a touch of femininity to an otherwise androgynous outfit.

You can also wear ballet flats with mom jeans and a turtle neck shirt for a bit of a vintage Audrey Hepburn kind of outfit. I’ve been wearing these patent green ones with everything lately. They are such a nice pop of color and they go with absolutely everything.

It’s also an easy way to incorporate a trend to your look in a subtle way. I love animal prints, especially when worn in an unexpected way. These flats save me from looking too Cougar-y.

Ballet flats are also a great way to make cocktail dresses day-appropriate. They’re an easy pair to bring day and night, and they work for the office too!
And last but not the least, nude ballet flats! They don’t only elongate your leg, but they are my ultimate go-to pair for a busy outfit. They don’t distract from your look, but complement if effortlessly!
