Question: When, where, and how can I wear ballet flats?

Answer: The real question here is: what doesn’t go with ballet flats? The answer is nothing. Ballet flats are the perfect shoe for just about every occasion. They are cute, they’re comfortable and oh, did I mention they are comfortable?

The truth is, ballet flats look equally adorable with leggings and a printed tunic as they do with a cute spring sundress. And now ballet flats come in such chic styles that you can dress them up for any fancy soiree. Want to toughen up a girly dress? Go for a pair that’s embellished with spikes or studs. Need something simple for a busy ensemble? Grab a feminine and flattering neutral pair. If you need it, there’s a ballet flat for it.


The great thing about ballet flats this spring is that you can have fun with them. Anything goes! And it’s a great way to get in on the mixing prints trend without feeling over-the-top. Go for a pretty pastels, or even a bold leopard or floral print. They go with nothing and everything at the same time, and can really make your outfit pop without sacrificing comfort. It’s a total fashion win-win. Here are a few of my favorite options when it comes to ballet flats for spring:
Yosi Samra Erica T-Strap Foldable Flat ($92, Nordstrom)
These Yosi Samra flats not only add some edge to your outfit, but they also fold up—making them a great option for packing or throwing in your work bag. I love them paired with ripped jeans and a tee for a put-together day look.
Adrianna Papell Selina Flat ($89, exclusive)
Adrianna Papell’s “Selina” Flat is sweet, feminine, and the perfect flat to dress up any outfit for day or night. I adore the blush color for a girly touch, but all of these are great options…especially if you’re in an “off” phase in an on-again-off-again relationship with your heels, (but still need an acceptable flat to wear to a fancy shindig).
Valentino Rockstud Ballerina Flat ($695, Nordstrom)
These are the creme de la creme of all flats. Yes, they may be a splurge, but trust us: these beauties are worth it! The pointed toe is super chic, the spikes toughen you up a bit and add the perfect pop to any outfit. In love!
DV8 Tasmin ($40, Zappos)
These are the perfect combination of three trends: Black and white, pop of color (neon!) and a print. Put them all together into a flat and you’ve got a whole lot of adorableness happening on your feet!
Aerin Brava ($228, Zappos)
Who says black has to be boring? These are a great option for a “basic” flat that is anything but basic and still goes with everything!
