This Is Zara's Summer Answer to Ballerina Flats


Collage Vintage

It all started with classic ballet flats. But this year, we've seen the ballerina-inspired trend grow, expanding into bodysuits, tulle skirting, and, yes, fresh takes on the footwear. And while we don't often recommend messing with the classics, Zara is doing a great job of taking a little creative royalty and making this trend feel especially fresh for summer.

The fast-fashion brand has taken summer espadrilles and ballet flats and brought them together into a single easygoing yet feminine shoe style. It's definitely casual enough to pair with denim cutoffs and a T-shirt but would work paired with a flowy dress for a summer wedding, too. (How's that for easy?) So no matter what may be on your agenda the next few weekends, you'll want to wear these ballerina espadrilles to get it all done.
