As we farewell ‘90s trends (see ya, low-rise denim) and hurtle into a revival of the trends of the noughties, ballet flats are well and truly making a comeback.
If you’re ready to dip a dainty little toe into the return of ballet flats, here are ten styles we’re loving that you can shop on The Iconic right now—drop the code UL20OFF for 20% off full-price items over $99.
Country Road Claudia Ballet
Like their clothing, Country Road’s footwear is well-made and meant to last, and these classic responsibly sourced leather ballet flats are the perfect gateway into the trend if you’re more of a monochrome fan. Shop them here.
Rollie Ballet Flat
Designed in Melbourne, these suede ballet flats will mould to your foot and fast become a fave thanks to their removable insole for max comfort. The cherry red shade is très Alexa Chung (a noted ballet flats loyalist). Shop them here.
Spurr Koren Ballet Flats
You can’t go wrong with a neutral flat, and the soft round toe of these ballet slippers makes them super flattering and leg-lengthening. Shop them here.
Walnut Melbourne Abbi Leather Ballet
A classic design in a versatile colour, these powder blue ballet flats are perfect to see you through spring and summer, and the supple leather means you’ll be strolling in comfort all day long. Shop them here.
Atmos&Here Angelica Leather Ballet Flats
Neutral but with a twist thanks to that funky edge detailing, these leather ballet flats are the perfect place to reignite your love affair with the simple design. Shop them here.
Rubi Mary Jane Ballerina
The square toe and skinny strap of these ballet flats make them a decent dupe for the Miu Miu version that arguably reignited the trend, and the price point is perfect for those who are experimenting without a serious commitment. Shop them here.
Edward Mellar Fae Classic Ballet With Bow Trim
These mega comfortable ballet flats are made from smooth patent leather in a warm neutral tone, meaning they’ll go with every *claps* single *claps* outfit *claps*. The little bows are a super cute detail, and the grosgrain trim is just another indication of their quality. Shop them here.
Witchery Kai Suede Ballet
The combo of soft suede and the fun blue hue makes these ballet flats a fun twist on the old-school favourite, while the two-part outsole foils any of the common issues with comfort this style carries. Shop them here.
Ted Baker Norha Leopard Ballerina Shoes
Leopard print is basically a neutral, right? Throw on these cute Ted Baker ballet flats with your denim and white linen for a dose of French-girl cool. Shop them here.
S By Sempre Di Sveva Ballerinas
If you’re already a ballet flat fan, perhaps it’s time to upgrade to this slightly avant-garde take on the wardrobe staple. Available in white, black and summery yellow, the square toe and additional detailing just add a little oomph. Shop them here.
