You heard it here the first time.
Who else remembers when the wrap-around Miu Miu ballet flats took over social media in 2016? From Instagram to Pinterest to Tumblr, you couldn’t go online without coming across these shoes at least once a day. Even still, they have never lost their charm. And now, after a brief hiatus (and balletcore revival), the flats are back.
For its Fall/Winter 2022 collection, Miu Miu paraded the models in delicate satin ballet flats paired with legging-inspired socks.
But Prada’s playful little sister isn’t the only brand taking inspiration from ballet. Chanel, Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha and Tory Burch also showcased the shoe style in their Spring/Summer offerings, but with modern twists like ankle ties, metallic textures and platform soles.
So how do you wear this 2010s trend in 2022? Just pair your favorite ballet flats or Mary Janes with an easy slip-on dress or babydoll and you can pull off this look with little to no effort.
