Top 5 Ballet Flats Everyone’s Wearing


Ballet Flats
Ballet Flats

The revival of a classic closet staple, ballet flats are making a comeback and we’re here for it. Just like cargo pants, double denim and mini skirts, the 2000s are defining the fashion pieces of today and 2023 has taken it one step further.

For some, ballet flats are the school shoes you always had and for others, they evoke your skinny jeans and cropped cardigan days. This season, we’re seeing shiny black patents, silk-like satins and soft leather neutrals, the key to this trend is reimagining how you’d typically style them.

Growing into the fashion shoe of the summer, these little flats are practically made for us. Chic, casual and comfy, each pair is fitted with our unique biomechanical footbed. The arch shape is designed to aid foot function and reduce pressure on the heel, while the heel cup cradles the heel providing next-level support.

We’ve re-entered our ballet flat era and turned to our community to show us exactly how to style them.

Partridge / Black Patent Leather Ballet Flats

Walking down just about every runway, you’ll find Mary Jane flats. Now that they’re officially cool again, we’ve been wearing ours on repeat.

The little black dress of footwear, Partridge is taking our feeds by storm. A triple-buckled staple that’s as comfy as they are on-trend, they’re just like heels without the fuss. Patent shoes are a wardrobe essential, if you’re making your morning commute or venturing out for an afternoon Aperol, they’ll elevate every outfit you own. Now, let's get into how to wear them.

It’s no secret monochrome is a crowd favourite. For work, slip into your fave leather skirt and pair back with a simple white shirt. For brunch, turn to shorter lengths to make your shoes the hero. For an evening look, all-white is an absolute must with a black bag and belt to match.

TIP: Mini skirt or floaty dress, pair your flats with contrasting socks for the ultimate trans-seasonal look.

Inca Black Leather Ballet Flats

This season, we’ve reinvented the simple ballet flat and introduced three distinct hues. Sold so quickly we had to restock them, Inca is the single-strapped style your wardrobe has been waiting for. Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, they’re fitted with our B.plantfoam footbed for added comfort. Made from 72% plant-based materials, each consciously curved bump will support your every step.

Soft satin is known as the go-to for traditional ballet slippers. Embrace your inner ballerina and go full balletcore in a soft colour palette and silky textures. For an edgier take on a typically feminine flat, we’ve got you. We’re talking midi skirts and oversized blazers, top it off with a matching bag and you’ve got yourself a look. If minimalism is more your style, you can’t go wrong with a black pencil skirt. Add interest with a striped top or pair with an oversized shirt for a refined look.

If heels really aren’t your thing, pointed toes are pretty much made for you. They’ll elongate the leg while refining your look, not to mention, they’re bloody comfy, too. While you may think your feet will feel squished, we make ours a little differently. Designed with extra length to accommodate the width, your feet and wardrobe will thank us.

We’re no strangers to embellished shoes, they’ll elevate your wardrobe while making you sparkly, too. Fitted with delicate crossover straps detailed with diamantés, save Siskin for a special occasion or add them to your daily rotation.

If you’re opting for silver, show them off in all-black or complement the look in all-white. Whether structured suits are your thing or you live in stockings, the possibilities are endless with this timeless flat.

There you have it, ballet flats are in and you know exactly how to wear them. If you can’t land on one style, we’ve got you covered. Pop into one of our boutique locations, we’ll measure you up and try a few options to find your perfect pair. If you can’t make it in-store, chat with us live. We’ll provide fitting advice and will even send you additional shoes to try!

Whether you’re jumping on the patent trend or opting for minimalism, you’re guaranteed a pair of ballet flats to last you through the seasons.
