Get ready to plié till your hearts' content, because Balletcore is pirouetting its way back into the fashion scene and taking over our wardrobes this season! Oh yes, you heard it right - channelling your inner ballerina is giving those fisherman sandals a serious run for their money!


Remember when flats were everyone's comfort BFF, only to be overshadowed by those cool trainers? Well, Vogue predicted in August 2022 that flats would make a comeback, and boy, were they spot on (as always!). The balletcore trend has strutted its way into our hearts, making ballet flats an absolute wardrobe essential.


Picture this: pairing them with jeans and a tee - check! How about boxer shorts and a bomber jacket - double check! Or get a little playful with a denim mini skirt and a colourful crocheted cardy - triple check! These versatile cuties go with everything, making them a must-have for your shoe collection this season and beyond.


We've done the legwork (pun intended) and rounded up the most delightful ballet flats you can slip into, dash around town in, and flaunt on repeat. So, get ready to put your best foot forward as we reveal our top picks!
