How To Wear Flats With Literally Any Outfit

Sure, heels are great on occasion, but let’s be real...flats are the shining stars of a wardrobe when it comes to versatility and comfort. They can be dressed up or down, worn in any season, and are lightweight enough to pack on the go. And with a variety of styles to choose from - think ballet flats, espadrilles, oxfords, etc.- there’s always one to match the look you’re trying to achieve. They’re so versatile, in fact, they look stellar with any OOTD. Don’t believe it? Watch us prove how you can wear flats to pretty much any occasion.

How To Wear Flats To Work

You honestly can’t go wrong with a classic ballet flat for professional or business-casual work attire (especially a pair with a pointed toe), but black or nude ballet flats aren’t your only option when it comes to your un-elevated office footwear. There are other styles of flats just as work-appropriate as the classic ballet shoe that add a touch of added style and character to your outfit. For example, try a timeless menswear option like a chic loafer or brogue. Or, add a bit more character with a classic oxford or a stylish loafer. Flats work especially well with tailored dresses or work pants. A look we’re loving? Tailored pants with a slight ankle crop and our fave pair of flats.

How To Wear Flats For A Night Out

Instead of reaching for those 4-inch heels that make your legs look great (but you know your feet will hate after dancing the night away), try adding a pair of eye-catching flats to your going-out outfit. Metallic tones or a little extra sparkle add a touch of glam to any outfit. Try a velvet loafer or a metallic slip-on for a chic twist. Lace flats are also a great option to pair with night wear for a sultry touch.

How To Wear Flats In The Spring/Summer

Break out those cute and cool espadrilles! These light canvas shoes are perfect for strolls on the beach or evening drinks on the patio. The rope sole gives off the perfect beachy vibe and the casual style makes it an essential warm-weather closet staple. Pair them with a flowy sundress, a stylish swimsuit cover-up, or your go-to denim skirt.

How To Wear Flats In The Winter

Just because the temperature drops outside doesn’t mean you have to put away your favorite flats. Almost all flats can be paired with tights for the transition to cooler weather, and some styles can even be worn with socks. While this look can be a bit tricky to put together, your best bet is to go with a classic oxford and a fun pair of socks. In fact, oxfords work surprisingly well with the sock-and-flat look. Keep the socks thin and either crew-cut or knee-high and pair with a preppy dress or skirt for a chilly outfit win.

Pro tip: Flats are also the perfect shoe to leave at the office or pack in your bag for days when your commute to work can’t be done without winter boots. Because who wants to wear winter boots all day in the office?

How To Wear Flats To A Formal Occasion

Yes, flats can even be worn with evening and party attire. Seriously, is there anything these shoes can’t do? More and more brides are even choosing to forgo heels and wear gorgeous bridal flats on their wedding day instead. To nail the formal flat look, opt for flats that are simple and elegant. A solid-colored or metallic, dressier ballet flat with a pointed toe pairs well with cocktail or semi-formal dresses. If your dress is less formal, like a midi smock, an elegant loafer slide or espadrille also looks fabulous.

How To Wear Flats With Jeans

Skinny jeans and flats are a match made in fashion heaven. Almost any style of flat works with a jeans outfit - from ballet flats to modern loafers to oxfords. The key to mastering this look, however, is to make sure the jeans are skinny or rolled up so the denim does not overshadow the shoe. The possibilities are truly endless with this look.
