The Diane Kruger Way to Wear Ballet Flats on a Saturday

We’ve already told you how excited we are about the resurgence of ballet flats as of late. It’s so nice to have another pair of go-to comfortable (yet chic!) shoes in addition to your usual white sneakers. Simple ballet flats just have that amazing French-girl effect where you look perfectly polished without trying too hard. They’re the best classic staple because they pull together nearly any outfit in a sophisticated way—and we really mean any outfit.

Diane Kruger just stepped out in a total cool-girl outfit that we never would have thought to pair with ballet flats, but it totally worked. While running some errands in L.A., the actress styled some quirky Charlotte Olympia kitty moccasin flats with a plain white T-shirt, wide-leg jeans, and a messenger hat. We normally wouldn’t pick ballet flats to wear with wide-leg pants, thinking they would get lost, but this pair is cropped enough to show off the shoes and just a hint of leg. The ensemble of a tee, jeans, and flats seems so simple and perfect for the weekend, but it’s the jeans’ silhouette plus an amazing hat and shoes that made it all the more interesting. We can’t wait to try out a similar style for ourselves.
