I Think These Flats Look Chic With Leggings, Skirts, and Jeans


Flats are having such a moment right now. Ballet flats, anyone? On that note, I recently shared intel on how to wear this pretty shoe trend with jeans. Well, there's actually another flats silhouette that I think looks so elegant with jeans and is incredibly chic with leggings and skirts. Yes, I'm referring to flat Mary Janes.

Similarly to ballet flats, the fashion crowd has been gravitating toward this style as an alt to heels and other shoe styles to give off a polished vibe. They're incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down, which is why they work with everything from jeans to leggings to skirts.

Below, I'm sharing how fashion people are styling flat Mary Janes right now, complete with shopping inspiration if you want to add a pair of these shoes to your own wardrobe or need a fresh pair of jeans or leggings or a gorgeous skirt.

While you could really pair any shoe style with this look featuring a maxi skirt, the flat Mary Janes just feel modern and easy.

The white socks and flats are so cool with the leggings and striped top. They're also a beautiful alt to a sneaker choice, for example.

This is a no-fail 'fit with jeans, flats, and a pretty jacket.

So here for the white-sock-and-flats look! The addition of a denim maxi adds a forward element to this ensemble.
