What to Wear With Ballet Flats

Ballet flats are not related to any fashion trend, they are simply a fashion must have. These shoes give you comfort and you can wear them anywhere, for the bigger part of the year. Here are 5 different styles of ballet flats and what to wear them with.

Even though it looks like ballet flats are a recent trend, they became popular in the 50’s, after Audrey Hepburn wore them in “Roman Holiday.” Today, we wear them to work, to school, at parties, and they are among shoes, what a little black dress is among dresses.

Whether you like animal print, bright colors or simple black ones, check out the following outfits for inspiration, and look fabulous while your feet are taking a break from sky high heels.

Ballet Flats with Animal Print

Animal print is a fashion statement, so neutrals and black or brown, are always the safest choice. However, add some twist with your animal printed ballerinas, by adding some color to your outfit. Wear neon red or orange on your lips and match it with a same colored clutch. This outfit is great for summer evenings, and the biggest plus is that it makes you look slimmer.

Multicolored Ballet Flats

Many women think that when you wear multicolored shoes, you must wear a one-colored outfit. While that choice is not wrong, try to spice it up by paying attention to details. While this outfit is not a bold choice, it is rather elegant, and you can wear it everywhere. The key is to create gentle color-blocking, in this case that would be lovely light olive, with purple, and a bit of turquoise.
