Not only are they appropriate for all occasions, but they look amazing paired with a little black dress, or even a pair of denim shorts. Style your lace-up flats with a bit of inspiration below.

Denim shorts

Take notes from blogger Elle Ferguson, and style your favourite pair of lived-in denim shorts with lace-up flats. A white blouse never fails to complete this casual outfit and a blazer is perfect for when the temperature drops.


Cropped trousers

Any type of cropped trousers add the perfect finishing touch to a pair of lace-up flats. They allow the laces to sit a bit higher on the leg and are easy to style with a chunky knit or scarf.


Oversized coats

A warm, oversized coat adds the perfect touch of high and low to an autumn outfit. How? Your body should feel warm and cosy without compromising your style – the best balance!


Chunky sweaters

Make like master-blogger Jules Sarinana, and style your flats with a cosy, oversized sweater. This look is perfect for a day filled with brunch dates and shopping bags – don’t forget that classic oversized bag to hide all of your purchases.


Distressed denim

Who could resist a touch of distressed denim, especially during the autumn/winter season? Tash Sefton style one of our favourite pairs of Isabel Marant flats with white and khaki colours – talk about outfit inspo!

Celebrity Style: Ballet Flats

With news that even Victoria Beckham is now wearing ballerinas, women are breathing a sigh of relief and ditching their heels for feet-friendly flats. Luckily, when we want to look fashionable without suffering, we can opt for a killer pair of ballet flats because they go with everything – from your favourite work outfit to casual weekends. Here are the trendiest celebs sporting ballet flats around.

Miranda Kerrs Neon Flats

Because these ballet flats (Louboutin, who else?) have a pointed toe, they help Miranda’s already long legs seem miles longer, and the thin ankle straps accentuate a slim ankle. The neon hue adds a fun pop of colour to any outfit.

We often see Beyonce dancing around in 6-inch heels and rarely does she go for sensible shoes. However, we have spotted her in a pair of adorable ballets, like these Topshop kitten ballets, which are perfect for a busy mother who doesn’t want to sacrifice style. These flats are versatile enough to be worn with shorts, pants, dresses and skirts, making them the perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

Katy Perry

Her quirky style makes her stand out from other celebrities, but even Perry can’t say no to a pair of ballet flats. She’s often been spotted in cute ballets, whether hanging out with friends or riding a bike around town!

Nicole Kidman

Nicole always dresses to impress and loves to wear classic, chic pieces, like at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Flats in neutral tones like Nicole’s are perfect for running errands because they’re polished, comfortable and long-lasting. Pair with skinny jeans or capri pants a la Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.
