Supposedly a ballet flat is a very important shoe to own. I personally don’t own any, but there have been many times I wished I did. The problem is there are usually never any good vegan ones.
Ballet flats are very practical. They are a flat shoe, so they’re easy to walk in, and yet also they are extremely chic. They call to mind Audrey Hepburn, Briggite Bardot, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and other glamorous movie stars from yesteryear.
I’d like to do a post sharing some of those iconic photos of these glamorous women wearing these simple flat shoes to show everyone how a ballet flat was classically worn. I’d also like to share the perfect vegan ballet flat I’ve found, available for purchase online or at your local old navy.
These are the best looking vegan ballet flats I’ve seen. They have great reviews online too, are very inexpensive ($21.50) , and come in many colors.
And now onto our history lesson.
The first person one thinks of when one hears ballet flat is Audrey Hepburn. Why? She only wore flats, and she looked amazing.
You gotta love her! She never looks like she is trying to impress anyone in unwalkable high heels. She puts her own comfort first and foremost, while still looking amazing. How DOES she do that?
Here is some inspiration for how one can as they say in fashion magazines “get the look”! This girl is doing a fantastic job. As we learn from Hepburn, ballet flats are great to wear with capris.
Another iconic ballet flat wearer, was a laid back girl from St. Trpoez, and a hero in the animal rights movement–none other than Brigitte Bardot. Let us study some images:
She looks amazing!
My dear animal loving readers, was this post helpful to you? Do you have a better sense of how ballet flats were worn throughout history? What do you think of Ballet Flats? Do you like these Old Navy ones, or do you prefer a more embellished style? I prefer the classic look of the ballet flats worn by these old movie stars.
