Completely classic and sweetly elevated, heeled ballerinas have become a staple piece for the fashion girl and minimalist of today, though simple flats have been a wardrobe essential for decades. With the edition of a small block heel, classic ballet flats have been transformed and have the power to take any look from classic to elevated in an instant.
The block-heel trend has been circulating through designer collections and the streets of fashion week for the past few seasons (and they’re not going anywhere). Designers have become more creative with this heel, taking it from sandals to attaching it to the bottom of loafers and everywhere in between. Though some designers are new to the heeled ballerina game, Mansur Gavriel, is definitely not. From patent to suede, this well sought after brand gives us the ultimate ballerinas in a variety of playful colors that have walked the streets of fashion week and beyond.
Style Tip: In need of a simple day look? Pair a simple white oxford button-up with your favorite pair of denim and slip into your heeled ballerinas. This classic look, while easy to throw on at the last minute, still looks elevated and polished!
We love the soft femininity of a ballet flat. With the extra height, these ballerinas can take you from a busy day at the office to a lunch date to the market and back again. Say goodbye to those commuter shoes you carry with you, these walkable little numbers are all you need. Take a look at a few of our favorites below!
