I’m always in search of cute comfortable flats to wear on those days that I just don’t want to wear heels. On days that I’m exhausted, I prefer to wear flats so that I can feel lower to the ground and so that my calves don’t have to work so hard.
Black flats are a necessary staple to anyone’s wardrobe because they go with just about everything. But what kind of flats to choose is another story. I recently ordered two different pairs of flats – a lace-up option and a simple slip-on flat. I’ve been looking for a new pair of black flats for some time now so the question of which to choose came up. Below, I listed the pros and cons that helped me make my decision.
The Lace-Up Flat:
Pros: Trendy, cute and looks good with skirts, dresses and skinny ankle jeans.
Cons: Trendy, and may be out of style in a few years. Doesn’t work with a corporate outfit. The laces add on a few more minutes to your prep time.
The Traditional Flat:
Pros: Simple, stylish, and timeless. Can be worn with any outfit including slacks. Easy, slip-on style.
Cons: I can’t think of any.
So, I weighed my options and ended up keeping the BP ballet flats. I can wear them with just about anything and not have to worry about them going out of style in a few years. I also love the toe-cleavage on these flats. 🙂 The laces on the Steve Madden lace-ups drove me crazy and it just took too much time to get them the way I wanted them! So back to the store they went. I must admit however, that both of these shoes are extremely comfortable and I would recommend either of them.
What are your thoughts on traditional black flats versus a more trendier style? Would you go for one over the other?
Below I’ve linked various styles of black flats that are great choices whether you want to go the more trendy route or whether you want to keep it simple.
Have a great day lovelies!
