These Previously Basic Shoes Are Now Cool Again

Ballet flats have long been a staple in stylish women's wardrobes, and it's easy to see why. They're a practical, simple style that is totally easy to slip on with any type of outfit. They also exude a certain chic minimalism that French women naturally come by and the rest of us strive to emulate. However, they've been glossed over as of late in favor of white sneakers and even slide sandals. Well, that phase is now coming to a close. 

Since Miu Miu debuted its highly coveted leather buckle and lace-up ballerinas, flats have become all the rage again. (Seriously—everyone's obsessing over these designer ballet flats.) Everyone from Alexa Chung to Olivia Palermo has been spotted sporting ballerinas again, and there's no shortage of chic ways to wear them. Any way you choose to don this shoe style, you're guaranteed to end up with a comfortable yet polished ensemble.
