It's time to say goodbye to calf-crippling stilettos and hello to comfy flats. We may have spent many a years lusting over Louboutins, cooing over Jimmy Choos and tripping up in our YSL Tributes but right now there is a new shoe in town...
When Alexa Chung stepped out at the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards earlier his week wearing chic ballet slippers teamed with a ruffled Jason Wu cocktail frock, we were all beside ourselves with excitement.
Over the past few fashion seasons we’ve seen the rise of the killer heel, the extreme heel and down right death-defying heel (think back to Prada’s S/S 09, show, the poor models barely made it out alive). And while we all appreciate a spot of architectural footwear, we've all been secretly praying for a hip A-lister to bring the ballet back with a bang! Alexa Chung has delivered!
Not only will a chic ballet flat add a Parisian edge to all your looks it also embodies a carefree attitude that can only work in a girls favour. French Sole are still our favourite go-to shop for endless ballerina slippers... Why not slip into these leopard print beauties with red-rim detail for a fashionable feast of comfort this Christmas.
