15 ballet flats that will look chic with everything this spring

Elevate your outfits with a pair of ballet flats

When I think of ballet flats I’m instantly transported to 2007 when I wore a gold Topshop pair with my skinny jeans religiously. But like with many other Y2K trends, the runways have officially declared the ballet flat is back, and after seeing an onslaught of chic pairs all over the street style set, I’m finally on board.

Comfortable, elegant and versatile, what’s not to love? Of course, Chanel’s iconic two-tone pair has been around since the 1950s, but if you too still associate them with the unstylish era of wearing a waist belt with literally everything, just take a look at Miu Miu’s super cute logo-jacquard strap ballet flats or the beautiful satin styles by The Row.

We’re so ready to leave our boots behind, and until sandal season arrives, the ballet flat is the sweet spot between the two.
