Shoesday Tuesday: Ballet Flats
Jessie Ajluni | Tuesday June 20th 2017
Having lived in New York City for going on almost 10 years now I’ve learned a thing or two about dressing for style and comfort. In the beginning, I was almost always in heels. At the most respectable height of 4’11, on a good day, I was never secure enough in myself to wear anything less than three-inch heels. However, with many years, and miles, under my belt in NYC, I have come to appreciate the need for a stylish but practical shoe option.
The catalyst for this epiphany happened one day while working at my office at the time when one of my then co-workers, and one of the chicest ladies I know, walked into the office in a pair of the most adorable Chanel ballet flats I had ever seen. From that moment on I was a total convert to the flats trend. Now with the rise of sneakers and slides, I feel that this much love shoe trend isn’t getting the praise it deserves. From Sophia Webster’s adorable butterfly confections to Paul Andrews cool girl style basket weave numbers designers are making a major case to bring back the ballet. So get your style game on point and check out our round-up of the best flats around.
