It’s Time: Divorce Your Boots & Marry Ballet Flats

By Daniela Apeloig


Not only has the weather been playing with your feelings, running hot and cold by the day, but you’ve been married to your 6 pairs of boots and booties for so long now that the honeymoon is over. Teased by Black Swan, you seek out those ballet flats from last season—they whisper your name, flirt with you, and beg you to take them out for a spin. You are totally seduced and headed for divorce. If you’ve already signed the papers and are totally over it, we can help. We love matchmaking. So, here are the ballet flats on trend this spring. You’ll fall in love at first sight.

Nude Ballet Flats
Neutrals and nude colors are a big spring fashion trend. The BCBG Molly Ballet Flat, $98, is a classic and hits the spring color trend at the same time. The elastic trim makes the flat super-comfortable. The perfect pairing for a neutral outfit, or to contrast with something more dramatic.

Colorful Print Ballet Flats
Colorful florals and tribal prints are a hot spring fashion trend. You can have fun mixing and matching motifs—just make sure they have a similar color palette or pattern. Pair this Vitia Kaleidescope Print Snip-Toe Bow Flats by Mossimo, $24.99, with a print outfit, tribal accessories, or a simple T-shirt and jeans. Whatever the combination, you’ll make a statement.

Waterproof Ballet Flats
With spring ☺, come the spring showers ☹. Although you divorced your boots, we know you still see your rain boots from time to time. We’ve got the perfect rebound—Melissa Plastic Island shoes, made from Melflex, a waterproof plastic. The Melissa Royale II in black, $86, is very Chanel-like, with a white toe and a heart-shaped heel.

Lace Ballet Flats
Lace is fickle. One season it’s the hot trend, the next, it’s moved on. This spring, the lace trend loves you, so love it right back with the Sam Edelman Women’s Caper Ballet Flat, for $99. It’s covered with black Belgian lace and topped with a jeweled toe to add just the right amount of sparkle to your look. Wear these flats with anything from jeans to leggings to dresses.

Floral Ballet Flats
Flowers bloom in spring and in spring fashion trends. They should bloom in your wardrobe too. The Gap’s Appliqué Flower Ballet Flats in taupe for $49.50, put the perfect spring in your step. Pair them with that military vest you just bought—you’re so on top of the trends this season!

Striped Ballet Flats
Ahoy, there, nautical stripes! Come aboard this spring fashion trend with the American Eagle Outfitters Canvas Ballet Flat, $29.50. With white and navy blue stripes, these flats are great for jeans or a nautical outfit in blue, gold, or red.

Metallic Ballet Flats
We love everything that shines. That’s why we love this Yosi Samra Merlin Fold-Up Ballet Flat, in Bronze Crackled, for $65. These flats fold in half, so you can carry them in your purse and take them out whenever you want a rest from your killer heels. Also available in gold, silver, pewter, rose gold, and even metallic pink or blue. So choose your favorite metallic and hit the streets rocking one of spring’s hottest trends!

What I’m Buying This Spring & Summer Fashion Season

By Stacey Mayesh


It’s always a challenge to take the fashion season’s trends and then distill them down to what it means for you. Sometimes you might love something, but it just isn’t right for your body or age. With fashion trends, it’s really important to understand what works for you!

Here’s what I’m coveting for the 2010 spring and summer fashion season—some I’ve already purchased and some I’m still eyeing . . .

1. Elizabeth and James Field Jacket $545
My take on the military trend: my new Elizabeth and James lightweight trench. It’s the perfect transitional jacket for my busy lifestyle running around the city.
Buy at Shopbop

2. Vince Shrunken Blazer $445
I just got this cute navy shrunken blazer by Vince. I’m planning to wear it with my Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans and a little striped tee underneath with a wedge cage shoe.

Buy at Shopbop

3. Lanvin One-Shoulder Ruffle Dress $1,190
I love this Lanvin dress. You can really dress it
up or down, and the color is to die for. It makes
me happy just looking at it.

Buy at Kirna Zabête

4. Chloé Wide Leg Vent Pocket Jeans $565
I’m seriously coveting these CHLOE jeans! I need them now!!

Buy at Intermix

5. YSL Agate Disc Necklace $650
This one I already bought—it’s my YSL take on the tribal trend. I plan to throw it on with all of my spring simple tees and tanks. It takes a basic outfit up 10 notches and makes it fantastic.

Buy at Saks


6. Lanvin Macramé Low Sandal $1,110
I’d really like to get these Lanvin macramé sandals—the colors are so much fun. Reminds me of Rasta colors.
Buy at Kirna Zabête

I’m still trying to figure out what bag to get this season . . . there are so many good ones!

Want it all but don’t know where to put it? Read Stacey Mayesh’s guide to styling your closet.
