Not always the shiniest or most desirable choice of footwear available, the flat can often be over looked and under loved but with all the options available right now it might be time to re-think and invest this chic and comfortable footwear option.
From Valentino’s lace and raffia espadrille to Simone Rocha’s patent pink brogues and Miu Miu’s bejewelled loafers there is something for everyone.
Tips for tackling the trend:
– The right pair of flats can dress up any outfit, jeans and even your favourite denim jacket will be transformed into a lady like staple by the right pair of flats. Pale pinks, cream and lace options will add just the right amount of polish.
– Timeless as it may be, the ballet flat can sometimes lack that something special your outfit needs. Don’t be afraid to clash prints, not matching your shoes to your whole look can be so bad it’s good. Try other flats options- smoking slippers and brogues are modern day takes on the humble ballet flat.
– Play with proportion, paring flats with your mini skirt will make the look more daylight hour suitable then Friday night only attire. Vice versa longer options work on the same principle, flats dress down your look for when you want to dress up but not stand out.
Next time your feet have nothing to wear don’t ignore the humble flat…it’s your best friend this spring, your feet will thank me later!
