6 Classic Black Flats

What shoe is more classic than a basic black flat? If I could only own one pair of shoes, I think it’d be a black flat. You can wear them with jeans, skirts, dresses, pants, even shorts! If you think about it, this may be the shoe that you could find in every woman’s closet. I’d also argue that you should spend the most on this shoe, because you will wear the living day lights out of it. Here are 6 different kinds of classic black flats. Which would you choose?

The Basic

The most basic of them all, the rounded-toe black flat will never go out of style. This Clarks version is crafted from premium leather and has an OrthoLite footbed. It’s the kind of shoe that will never let you down.

The Point

When I was in high school, I went on a 3-week-long trip to Italy and one of my main take-aways from the trip was that women look sexier in pointed toe shoes. I love this asymmetrical design from Sole Society, but I also love these and these. A pointed-toe flat is a gorgeous way to wear this classic shoe.

The D’Orsay Flat

Ooo la la. The D’Orsay flat cups the heel and skims your toes—such a lovely and exotic design! My mom bought me a pair of D’Orsay flats for my birthday a few years ago and they add an instantaneous zing to any outfit I pair them with.

The Ballet Flat

These strappy shoes are extremely trendy right now and can be paired with just about anything! Plus, it’s a way to channel your inner 5-year-old that daydreams of being a Russian ballerina.

The Smoking Slipper

Inspired by menswear, these suede flats will fold your feet in a warm embrace. I love these shoes because they look so doggone good with jeans and, lets be honest, that’s what I wear 6-7 days a week!

The Oxford

Doesn’t get much more tomboyish than this! I feel doubly attracted to these shoes because they would be the warmest option (and the only pair that could be easily paired with socks). I hatehatehatehatehate having cold feet and would never leave the house without socks during the winter, so my shoe options get pretty limited.

What about you? What style of flat is your favorite? Do you have a favorite pair that you wear now? Do you like having a pair of flats in black or do you prefer a pop of color on your feet?
