5 Sensible and Cute Ballet Flats Perfect for Weekend Strolls: Friday Finds

Ballet flats are a simple fashion choice this fall.

Ballet flats are back and they are just as simple as ever. If you want to stock up on a few cute ballet flats before fall hits, we’ve rounded up a few places you can find these comfortable flats.

Ballet shoes, vintage

1. Vintage Ballet Flats

I am not one to swoon over flats (I’m more of a platform girl), but these flats are darling enough to make me change my sky-scrapper heeled ways. These flats are vintage from the 1950-’60s and quite similar to the style that the graceful Audrey Hepburn donned. Pair these shoes with a pair of black skinnies or sleek, high-waisted, dark jeans. On top, wear minimal jewelry (small earring studs will do), and a chunky white sweater. Priced at $36.92 from Etsy shop FiregypsyVintage.

Ballet flats, simple

2. Nordstrom Flats

These are one of the more classically simple ballet flats on the list. While they may not be sexy, they would look totally cute with a light gray frilly pair of socks, a navy pleated mini skirt, and a sheer gray collared shirt. From ThredUp and priced at $27.99.

Ballet flats, brown

3. Vintage Italian Flats

I love these vintage flats — they look so attractive and classy. I’d pair these low-heeled shoes with a plaid wool skirt, thick tights, and a fitted, light blue sweater to pull together the perfectly sensible Thanksgiving day outfit (yes, I’m thinking ahead). From Etsy shop AllycatAttic, priced at $38.

Ballet flats, lace

4. Washed Leather Ballet Flat

You better jump on these flats before the weather cools too much so you can show of their amazing laces. This darling flat comes in three colors: brown, black, and tan. Priced at $88 from Free People. Pair this flat with a midi-skirt, and a loose fitting top for an effortlessly flowing outfit.

Ballet flats, flair

5. Billy Ella Shimmered Flats

These flats are the perfect choice if you want to add a little bit of flair to a solid-colored dress. Wear them all season long to cocktail parties to standout (in a good way). Priced at $158 from Anthropologie.
