HOW TO STYLE BALLET FLATS: 2024 EN POINTE

From the stage to Audrey Hepburn and contemporary fashion muses, ballet flats have secured their status as a timeless wardrobe essential.
 
In 2024 it turns out this hasn’t changed, but the surprising ways you can style ballet flats is in the spotlight and puts a fresh spin on this classic.
STEP INTO TIMELESS CHARM

Firstly, embrace the power of simplicity. Ballet flats are inherently elegant, and this quality is best showcased when paired with clean, minimalist outfits. When first introducing them to your style repertoire, opt for classic colours such as black, nude, or a soft pastel to create a sophisticated and refined look. Whether you're heading to the office or out for a casual weekend brunch, a pair of ballet flats effortlessly elevates your ensemble without sacrificing comfort, when you choose the right pair with arch support and generous cushioning.  

ADD SOME CONTEMPORARY FLAIR

Then for a more daring style performance, experiment with texture and embellishments to add a contemporary flair to your ballet flat style. Patent or metallic finishes can inject a touch of luxury, making your flats suitable for both casual and semi-formal occasions. A polished bow or statement box-toe adds a playful twist to any traditional ballet flat design, allowing you to express your individual style. 

FOR A REFINED AND POLISHED LOOK

For a chic office ensemble, pair your ballet flats with tailored trousers or a pencil skirt. This adds a touch of sophistication, creating a polished look suitable for the workplace. Choose a pointed-toe ballet flat for a more modern and elongated silhouette, ensuring a seamless transition from the office to after-work engagements. For a classic pairing, opt for round-toe or square-toe ballet flats with a dress.  

CLASSIC STYLE MEETS MODERN EDGE  

In 2024, the fashion scene encourages mixing and matching styles. For an expert level of style, experiment with unexpected combinations by wearing your ballet flats with more relaxed and casual pieces. A flowy midi skirt or a pair of high-waisted wide-leg pants creates a stylish contrast that exudes an effortlessly chic vibe. This juxtaposition of femininity and ease allows you to embrace the versatility of ballet flats in any setting.

Don't shy away from incorporating ballet flats into your evening looks either.

Choose a pair with a touch of glamour, perhaps adorned with a metallic finish, to seamlessly go from day to night. Pair them with a sleek cocktail dress or a tailored jumpsuit for an understated yet fashionable appearance.

AN INNOVATIVE TAKE ON A FAVOURITE

Ballet flat shoes as a style have not traditionally been very comfortable, however, and are not known for their supportive nature. We take this history into consideration (and as a challenge) every time we start to develop a pair of exclusive FRANKIE4 ballet flats, and revolutionising women's ballet flats as we know them has become one of our proudest defining moments as a footwear creator. Inside each pair of our ballet flats is a hidden heel raise, luxurious leather, additional support, and strategically layered cushioning, meaning when you put on a pair of these flats, you can still have the aesthetic of a classic style without compromising on integral comfort and support.  

BALLET FLATS IN THE SPOTLIGHT  

This approach proves that comfort and fashion can coexist, just take a leaf out of Audrey Hepburn’s style book. (We recommend watching Roman Holiday 1953, Funny Face 1957, or Sabrina 1954 for the best inspiration.)   

Firmly in the spotlight, ballet flats remain a staple in contemporary fashion, and in 2024, their adaptability and charm show no signs of waning. Whether you're aiming for a polished office look, a casual weekend ensemble, or an elegant evening outfit, ballet flats offer endless possibilities for a modern, comfortable, and effortlessly stylish wardrobe.
