The pretty silhouette has been a fixture on the runways (ahem, Miu Miu) and is a go-to for celebs and fashion people.

The beauty of ballet flats is that you can wear them with a range of outfits because they’re quite versatile. Baggy jeans are a popular pairing, but yes, so are trusty black leggings. The silhouette brings an elegant and an extra chic element to a leggings outfit, whether it’s a more dressed-up or low-key ensemble.
