How to Wear Flat Shoes and Look Great in Them

When it comes to comfort in shoes, flats are definitely a winner. Flats are the most ideal choice for shoes if you’re looking for something you can wear all day without paining your feet. Unlike high heeled shoes or even wedges, flats do not put strain on to your feet because it’s almost like walking barefoot with protection for your soles. Flat shoes come in many colors, styles, designs, prints and patterns. You can wear them with casual outfits, which is what they’re perfect for, but you can also wear them with dressier ensembles if you have a pair with classy and glamorous style. Here are some of our tips on how to wear flat shoes and look great in them:

  • Choose current styles – nothing makes you look more drab and boring in flats than wearing outdated styles. Flats typically come with inexpensive price tags so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get yourself at least one pair of one of the most current styles for flat shoes. Today, oxford shoes and cap toe ballet flats are very much on trend. Mary Janes, too, are super cute and trendy right now. If you’re on a tight budget, it’s always a good idea to invest in a pair that never goes out of style like plain black ballerina flats. Avoid shapeless, grandma-ish flats that will ruin your whole outfit.

  • Choose the right skirt length to wear your flats with – if you’re going for a girly look, a skirt and a pair of flats is definitely the best way to go. However, you have to be careful in choosing the length of the skirt you are going to pair your flats with. When wearing flats, choose a skirt that falls on or above the knee to make your legs look a bit longer. Unless you are super lean and tall, do not wear your flats with very long skirts and dresses because this will create a frumpy silhouette for you.

  • Wear your flat shoes with shorts – to create the ultimate casual look, nothing beats a pair of flats with an equally cute pair of shorts. This combination can be used for creating chic casual summer outfits. Simply throw on a tank or a t-shirt and you’re ready to head out the door. You can also wear this look for fall or even winter. All you have to do is add on a pair of leggings or tights underneath your shorts to help keep you warm.

  • Pants and flats: a classic – the combination of pants and flats have been a favorite for a lot of women over the years. This combination has allowed women to look fabulously stylish without sacrificing comfort. When wearing flat shoes with pants, though, take the same rule as wearing it with skirts: do not wear pants that are too long to avoid a frumpy silhouette. Skinny jeans, straight cut pants, or pants that have a slight flare are some of the best kinds of pants that you can wear you flat shoes with.
