#TuesdayShoesday: Ballet Flats – The It Shoe of SS17


Piece by piece, ballet inspired fashion has been slowly infiltrating our wardrobes over the last few months, First came the bodysuits, then the tulle skirts and now the ballet flats made famous by Miu Miu have been deemed the ‘It’ shoe of SS17.

Although you may not be ready to bare a little skin just yet, Spring is (thankfully) just around the corner which means sooner or later we need to start prepping our wardrobes for the season ahead. Shoes are always one of the easiest places to start and quickly update an outfit with very little effort.

When it comes to ballet flats, you can safely rely on the fact that you’ll never be out of step with the rest of fashion set. They’ve been a running theme across Chanel collections season after season. This time around it was Miu Miu who jumped on the bandwagon, taking inspiration from the more athletic route that the fashion world is taking. Throw in a bit of maximalism and you’ve got a shoe that screams SS17.

As much as I try, I just don’t have the patience to wear heels all the time. Yes, they definitely boost your confidence but they also tear your feet to shreds. If I’m running around at work or know that I have an event to work, comfort is my priority. With ballet pumps, they give you the comfort of trainers with the elegance associated with Parisian chic. My favourite thing about the trend? The high street brands have adopted it with open arms.
