Heels are great and we know our Dots divas love them, but sometimes you just have to wear a ballet flat! Personally, I love flats but sometimes they just don’t seem to go with everything. But being heelless, ballerina flats have a tendency to make ones legs appear shorter, so petite women may want to steer clear, or pair them with a shorter skirt, extending the amount of leg that is shown. So here are some tips on what to wear with a flat.
This spring you’ll find everything from sneakers to evening shoes that are inspired by ballet slippers, and hence could be called ballerina flats. Ballerina flats with satin or embellished uppers can seem especially dressy and elegant, while leather skimmers are a bit more casual and are great for pairing with jeans and shorts. If you’re looking for a fun, sporty look, a casual canvas skimmer is adorable with capris, shorts and short denim skirts.
However, there are a few items that should not be worn with flats, like pants that are too long or with pleated pants with narrow legs. This will make your mid section appear bigger, while making your legs seem shorter.
Flats are a comfortable and great for warm weather! Check out the great selection we have at Dots.
