Feminine, versatile and so easy to wear, LLOYD Ballerinas must be the most attractive and comfortable reason ever for taking a break from high heels. These popular slip-ons enjoy perennial popularity, with their flat soles, classic bow detail or modern, sleek lines, and touch of girlish charm. Ballerina flats can be worn on virtually any occasion, and patent or smooth leather versions are even suitable for the office.
Ballerina flats offer superior comfort to many other shoe styles – provided, of course, the fit is flawless. It’s essential to find ballerinas that fit correctly at the heels, neither cutting in nor so loose that they slip off during walking. Take a close look at the material, too; soft leather fits snugly to the foot without chafing or pinching. Incidentally, many women find that low heels or slim platform soles are more comfortable to wear than completely flat models.
Ballerina flats are incredibly versatile and are happy to take centre stage in all kinds of situations. However, shorter women should avoid teaming them with long trousers or maxi dresses; the ankles should be on show at least to prevent optically shortening the legs. Instead, choose cuffed or rolled-up jeans, shorts, and dresses or skirts from mini to midi lengths – all of these complement ballerinas outstandingly.
