Every time the words “basic or “so over” get thrown around certain footwear trends, I tend to approach with caution. Ballet flats are one of those staples that have stood the test of time, having graced the feet of icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. Most of today’s style mavens opt for this modest style too. What’s not to love? They’re comfortable and easy to stash in your handbag for days you know you’re not going to last in those super high heeled shoes gathering dust on the shoe rack.
There is a great selection of ballet flats available from EziBuy right now and I picked out my favourites. Styling them could not be any easier, whether you want contemporary, classic Parisian and even a little airport chic.
The texture of the Classic Leather Ballet Flats in Pewter and Metallic Ballet Flats add a modern touch to any outfit. In the example below, you can see how it tones down the bold and visual print just ever so slightly.

I’m not one to follow rules like patent only for the warmer months and suede exclusively for winter, so these Classic Ballet Flats in Nude (also available in black and navy) naturally caught my eye. This shiny material is also easy to clean.
Wear with Grace Hill Printed Pants or Capture Polka Dot Chiffon Dress
Pop of Colour
The coral and white-striped Marseille Ballet Flats bring that certain twist to what would otherwise be a boring but perfectly comfortable outfit. There’s definitely nothing wrong with a pair of jeans paired with a slouchy linen top – just remember to accessorise with colour. Stripes are a nice change too should you get tired of solid colours. If this bit of airport chic has you inspired to plan for your next getaway, keep an eye out for my next post on packing for holidays.
