With the cold winter months approaching, women need to start thinking about what shoes they will be wearing on a regular basis. One piece of footwear that most women do not think they can wear in winters are ballet flats. The following article will discuss whether you can or cannot wear ballet flats during the winter months.
It is understandable to feel a little confused about whether or not it is appropriate to wear women’s ballet flat shoes in the winter months. After all, there are lots of styles and brands of flat shoes that have no tread on their bottom.
First of all, always be aware of your surroundings when you head outdoors with your ballet flats. Whether you’re walking from your car to the front door or running errands, make sure that you wear shoes with some sort of traction. Even if you’re wearing flats for short periods of time, it’s not a bad idea to put on an additional pair of socks, or have a pair of boots in the car. You will also want to be careful about wearing flats in rain and snow. There is no reason to ruin a great pair of shoes, even if they are flats.
Ballet flats have a variety of different shapes that can be found online or in shoe stores. The most common type of ballet flat you can wear in the winter is the penny loafer, but other shapes are available.
What many women don’t realize is that you can wear ballet flat shoes any day as long as your overall outfit looks appropriate for the weather. If it’s a good, sunny day and you feel like sitting out on the deck for a bit, you can wear your flat shoes without worry. Just make sure that they have enough warmth and traction in case you slip on any patches of gravel or wet grass.
You can also wear flat shoes to work. Just be sure that you have changeable footwear, like a pair of heels for important meetings. You will look more professional if you wear a heeled shoe with a skirt or dress, instead of flats. Pantsuits and pencil skirts are best with wedges, heels and athletic shoes.
