While some things are better left in the past, others have every right to a second life. This is what happened with ballet flats – women’s flat shoes that came to us from the world of dance, and were last popular in the zero years. Then Kate Moss and Keira Knightley came to social events in skirts with a deep cut, cropped tops, massive belts and, of course, ballet flats, which were a key element of the image. After 20 years, we see that these elegant soft flat shoes are coming back to our lives again. Yes, the brand’s spring-summer 2022 collections gently hint that it’s time to shake off the dust from these iconic shoes once again.
Ballet flats are versatile and practical everyday shoes that can be worn both day and night, depending on how you style them. Yes, you can mix ballet flats with jeans and white shirts, as true French women do, combine with pleated mini skirts and preppy jumpers or accessorize cotton romantic dresses, inspired by the Molly Goddard collection. Always remember that high-quality ballet flats are a great wardrobe investment for all time, as they are timeless classics. For example, by buying the popular Chanel ballet flats, which are easily recognizable by the contrasting rounded sock (although the brand’s modern collections also have many plain variations), you multiply your style. By the way, ballet shoes from the Chanel spring-summer 2022 collection are decorated with a lacquered cape and an elegant ankle chain.
This summer, designers insist on purchasing a fashionable pair of ballet flats. Simone Rocha showed doll shoes, embroidered with pearls and decorated with silk linen, which will easily compete with high heels. Salvatore Ferragamo released a laconic black model with a signature flat bow, which will fit into any wardrobe, and Giorgio Armani showed woven ballet flats that refer to pointe shoes.
