Ballet slippers have been around since the sixteenth century and were a style both men and women wore. However, they went out of style in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries because high heels took over the fashion world. Who would have guessed? Then flats took off again in the 1950s and have stuck around ever since.
The silhouette of the footwear is what you expect. Flats are indeed flat with thin heels — some don’t even look like they have a heel at all. There are gatherings at the top portion of the vamp, and designers add other elements to spruce up the look.
Flats are as low maintenance as you can get, but that doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing fun and style. You can pair your women’s designer moccasins with almost any outfit. Because their defining characteristic is that they have no heel, of course, there is little to no lift like slides or sandals. Therefore, you will want to find ways to elongate your legs and avoid certain hems that make you appear shorter.
Ballet flats can be plain and simple for a sophisticated look, or they can feature unique embellishments and silhouettes like peep-toe, pointed-toe and ankle strap styles. Whether your style is simple and comfortable or daring and dazzling, flats are the perfect high-end accessory. Everywhere from prints and metallic to pastel colors and add-ons, flats allow you to wear them barefoot or with stockings.
Here are a few suggestions on how to wear ballet flats and look dazzling instead of drab. Choose a delicate rounded-toe or peep-toe style for a more preppy, feminine vibe, or select pointed-toe pumps in a bold color for an edgy look. You can also use flats as a statement piece when you’re searching for a pair of shoes to match your LBD or another monochromatic outfit. And if you choose nude flats, opt for ones with lace-up features to elongate your legs.
