Why the Ballet Flat Is Perfect for Fall—Plus, 30 Styles to Shop Now

If you’re not ready to step into knee-high boots and this divisive footwear trend isn’t your speed, then perhaps it’s time to consider fall’s most important shoe: ballet flats.

There’s no denying the ease and comfort the best flats for women offer, especially ruched, slip-on designs like the Ashland style created by Khaite. The Italian-made shoes mold to the foot like a glove, and those returning to the office this fall might consider tossing them into a tote bag as a chic backup option. But just because ballet flats are perfect for on-the-go moments, please, don’t consider them in the commuter shoe category. There are so many options crafted with fanciful details. Have you seen Jimmy Choo’s crystal-embellished Genevi shoe? What about Manolo Blahnik’s glitzy Hangisi flat. The sparkling features on both styles certainly deserve to be a plus one at every elegant gathering on your calendar this autumn.

So whether you’re planning a comfy wedding guest ensemble or looking for a sophisticated way to elevate your weekend outfits, you’ll be sure to find a beautiful pair of flats to accompany you throughout the season, below.
