What to Wear with Flats


Flats where once only known as the shoes that women wore when they wanted ultra comfort, but as fashion often does, flats have made a complete 180 and have now made it to the forefront in women’s footwear. This is probably due to so many famous actresses now gracing a great looking pair of flats both on and off the screen. Flats are a very versatile shoe and can be worn with a number of different outfits and deciding what you want to pair you flats with is simply a matter of where it is you may be going for the day.

While flats go with almost anything, here are a few ideas for you to experiment with when wearing your flats:

Skinny jeans: This look is sweeping through Hollywood and making its way quickly to the mainstream. If you like to wear skinny jeans then this is the look for you and your flats. Pair your skinny jeans with your favorite t-shirt and finish it off with a lightweight leather jacket. As for the flats go crazy and try different looks. Skinny jeans look great with animal print flats, metallic colored flats, and even bright solid colored flats. Mix and match here and find what works best for you. If you don’t like the look or feel of skinny jeans on your body you can still accomplish about the same great look by just going with a tighter fit of jeans than  you normally would.
Dresses: A great way to compliment almost any dress you have in your wardrobe is by pairing them with a great looking pair of flats. Really it doesn’t matter how long the dress is what is important is the color. Go with solid colors on the dress and match them with the flats. This combination works equally as well with light and bright colors like white and yellow, as it does with darker colors like blue and black. For a great look and a cozy feel try ballerina flats with your favorite dress.
Capris and shorts: You can wear flats with capris and shorts to complete a cool and casual look. You can wear a simple t-shirt with this look and top it off with a light jacket if the weather is cooling off. Most of the time when wearing flats you will not wear socks but in this case it is totally up to you. If you do choose to go with socks go with no higher than calf high.
Leggings and tights: This look is great and easy to pull off. Simply start with a black pair of tights or leggings and top it off with a miniskirt or dress and your favorite pair of sassy flats. The result will be a hip but casual look. You can also go for a bit of a wilder look and dress in animal print leggings with a solid color flat. This look will spice up your appearance and definitely have people doing a double take.

Flats look great no matter how you decide you like to dress. From casual to formal, flats will have you covered.
