We all know the mainstay of the mama uniform is a seriously great pair of flats. Popped on even with your most faded, worn-out jeans and an old tee, the perfect ballet pumps (for all the yank mamas, pumps in British English actually mean flats… confusing, right?) can literally “pump” up your look! Whether you like them sleek and simple or bling-encrusted, we’ve put together our Top 5 Ballet Flats for Spring.
First up, Kate Spade’s Tipsy flats with the fabulous neon tips. Available in pink, orange and yellow, these little babies are selling out fast in Hong Kong. Head to the Kate Spade stores in Pacific Place and ifc to pick up a pair. These flats will look just great with either jeans or tanned summer legs for running around town.
Every girl has got to have a little leopard print in her life, right? We love Stella McCartney’s version as it’s in satin so you can feel good that no real leopards had to die for your fashion. Yes, that’s a joke, but the kids will probably fall for it.
On the slightly more wallet-friendly side, these Topshop Karat Star Pumps are super-cute and can also roll up to pop in your bag if you have to do a heels/flats switcheroo.
Tory Burch’s Reva Flats are a modern preppy classic that look good with just about everything. Sassy tip: you might want to try sizes either size of your actual size (did that make sense?) to ensure a good fit as we find they can sometimes fit a little off-size.
Lanvin flats are pricey but super-comfy and you’ll have them forever as they’re made to last. Tangerine is such a hot colour for Spring/Summer and this is a great way to introduce a little touch into your wardrobe as a nod to a trend without going the whole hog.
