So you’ve got a killer new pair of ballet flats, but dread the thought of looking like a schlubby frump. No worries! You can work any style around your favorite flats! Today I bring you this amazing street style collection of fabulous ballet flats completed with cool socks.
Socks aren’t a must with ballet flats, but it’s important to cover your feet with an extra material so you don’t ed up stinking. You can’t go out in ballet flats without socks, at least go for invisible socks.
Here are five ways to mix up your look without compromising comfort.
-Sockless? Wear a legging or trouser that hits just above the shoe.
-If you’re wearing jeans, try sticking to ankle length ones and wear them with no socks to break up the denim.
-Wear your flats with a dressy tunic or a plain shirt (but skip the blazer).
-If you want to wear your flats with tights, make sure they are opaque.
-Go for shoes that have some cushioning inside so you’ll be comfortable when wearing them without socks.
When it comes to socks, choose an opaque pair or tights instead of a sheer pair. This will prevent foot-borne fashion faux pas from being visible to the eye .
The best socks for ballet flats are cotton, as they will not cause chafing. Wool socks will trap too much moisture in your shoe and make your feet feel hot and sweaty. Because synthetics often make your feet sweat, avoid them as well.
And just to be clear, we’re talking about tights and socks that you wear with ballet flats; not the kind you wear with other types of shoes. You should never wear hosiery with heels or Mary Janes, as their main function is to lift your feet from the ground.
I don’t think you can. It’s not really a sock, its more like a material that goes on your foot and covers the entire foot, but not up to the ankle, so yes you can wear ballet flats with socks. I have never heard of anyone wearing them without socks. A lot of girls wear them with thin tights, quite alot actually. They are comfortable and practical and will help protect your feet while dancing. Just make sure they are not too thick or stiff otherwise they will be uncomfortable to wear. I see lots of girls who experiment wearing ballet flats with knee-high socks, this does look interesting and chic. But try it only if you are feeling like a trendsetter, otherwise you won’t be self-confident.
