How to style ballerinas in fall 2022

You've probably heard that fashion is cyclical and that past trends come back sooner or later. Just recently, it-pieces from the 80s, 90s and early 2000s made their comeback, and now it's the turn of the ballet flats for the upcoming fashion season. It's been a long time since these flat shoes were a wardrobe essential, so we're showing you some of the styles that are especially hot this fall. So, you'll know exactly what to wear with your ballet flats!

Go casual!

In recent years, ballet flats were considered more as shoes for chic occasions and mainly as alternatives to high heels. But this fall, the flat shoe will be styled in a more casual way again. Vogue magazine gives the style advice to wear ballet flats with boxer-style shorts. If you want to be a little more elegant, you can combine the flats with chic short pants and a matching blazer.

Shine in eye-catching colors!

Colors are a must this fall. You can now find pink, red, or bright orange everywhere in the stores. Since color blocking is back, you can combine your flashy outfit with ballet flats in a similar striking color like flame red. Of course, you'll also never go wrong with classic black!

Go for plaid!

Plaid patterns are on the rise again this season - and rightly so! Plaid blazers combined with pleated short skirts and sweaters make for a girly yet chic look. Perhaps a merino wool sweater would be just right for this trend? Merino is especially great in the fall because of its breathable and thermoregulatory properties. You won't have to worry about temperature variations, and you'll feel good about yourself all day long. Brightly colored ballet flats, such as flame red, can add a colorful accent to this elegant style.

A bit of romance!

If you want a very girly look this fall, go for dresses. Maxi or midi dresses with romantic and whimsical sleeves, combined with minimalist accessories, were already very popular this summer - and they're still going strong! To accompany this feminine look, we bet on ballet flats with pointed toes, which give the feet a beautiful flattering shape. And round-toe flats give your outfit an even girlier touch.
