Ballet flats are timeless, foolproof classics. It seems like everyone has a pair — Queen Letizia of Spain likes a structured, elevated flat while Emma Roberts prefers a slingback style. One might recall Meghan Markle’s personal affinity for the footwear from brands like Sarah Flint and Rothy’s. Just in case you wanted a pair of ballerina-inspired shoes, too, TZR rounded up the best ballet flats to shop for Summer 2021 for your convenience. All you have to do is click add to cart, then wait (approximately) three to five days until the precious cargo arrives at your doorstep.
Flat shoes were one of the biggest trends last summer, and for a good reason. The silhouette requires minimal outfit planning and goes well with everything from Bermuda shorts to a billowy maxi dress. Style your flats with a wrap midi number like Naomi Watts did for that Parisian-chic vibe or opt for a pair of leggings on the bottom for a more sporty-casual look. If you’re still committed to sweats or loungewear — worry not, as actor Sophia Lillis has recently determined, ballet flats pair surprisingly well with a set of luxe pajamas. Scroll on to find an assortment of shoes in this style that make for great additions to your warm-weather wardrobe.
