I know the early noughties girlies are cowering, cringing and confused as to why the shoe that saw them through their high school years is back already, but it’s time to embrace the ballet flat again pals.

They are absolutely back – spotted on the hoofs of influencers and it girls at every fashion week around the globe – but this time they’re being paired with slouchy jeans or hyper-feminine mini dresses covered in bows. And seeing as all of us are avoiding heels like the plague these days, ballet flats offer a easy, comfy dressy option to fancy up our outfits.

So to dip your toe into the trend, I’ve found some of the cutest (and cheapest) options in Australia so you can shop and trot off in your new ballet pumps!
