Below are the different fashionable tips and guidelines on how to wear flats for a chic, sexy and romantic outfit.
Ways To Wear Flats
Flats With Skinny Jeans + Cardigan
When wearing flats, you should try to go for attires which look like a match made from heaven. A combination of skinny jeans with flats is a win-win combination as if it was matched and made directly from heaven. Therefore if you are looking for shoes that won’t add to you extra height, flats will be a great option with skinny jeans. I know that every sophisticated lady has at-least a pair of skinny jeans in her wardrobe and every lady should have at-least a pair of flats in her wardrobe.
In this case ladies can wear flats with skinny jeans, team the trend with a white round neck t-shirt. White is a neutral color that will definitely match with the navy blue skinny jean. Pair the outfit with black flats that will match with the white top. Adding a scarf around your neck will keep your neck region warm. Complement the trend with a matching cardigan that will keep you warm in case it gets chilly along the day. A black oversize handbag will complement the black ballet flats when teamed with the outfit. Finish the trend with dark shades and golden earrings that will add style to your outfit. This will be the perfect, comfortable outfit to wear to office.
Flats With Formal Dresses
Almost every lady has a cute little dress in her wardrobe. You can rock flats with a cute little dress for a romantic, sexy and chic outfit. In this case you can combine your flats with a pink and white polka dot dress. This will be the perfect romantic outfit with flats that you can wear on a date or a night out with your boyfriend.
I would recommend pairing the attire with Pink or Red ballet flat that will complement the patterns in the dress. Since this is a romantic outfit with flats, pair the attire with a red or pink shoulder bag or handbag that will match with the outfit. Personally I would complement the trend with a white cardigan that will match with the patterns of the dress and keep me warm in case it gets chilly along the day. Pink or reddish armlets will add style to the outfit and I will strongly recommend them with this outfit.
Jeans are not the only outfits that we wear on a daily basis for casual and formal outfits. You can rock flats with formal dresses of knee-length. In this case you can wear a black and white floral dress with nude ballet flats. Complementing the attire with black leather jacket will flatter and complement the patterns of the dress. You can add more glitter to your outfit by accessorizing with an oversize handbag and a scarf. You can dress like this when going to work or when going out for a drink with pals on weekends.
Personally I would opt for a black knee-length dress. Though some people don’t like black and they perceive it being a color for dirty people. I strong disagree with them. Black is a stylish color for sophisticated women which can be ruled out of style. I would pair this knee-length black dress with black ballet flats and wear a thin belt to show off the waistline. To glitter the outfit, I would complement the attire with dark shades and an oversize handbag. Finishing the attire with a gold necklace and a watch will be the winner for this outfit. You can dress like this to office or any formal occasion.
Flats With Casual Dress
Well, let’s go casual by dressing a sleeveless dress with flats plus a hat (panama or cowboy). This outfit is for all women who love hats and wear them for casual outfits. You can dress flats with a sleeveless dress say red or light-blue. Pair the attire with an oversize belt to show off your waistline. For a red sleeveless dress, opt for a black oversize belt and for a light-blue dress opt for a greenish or bluish small size belt. Team the trend with black flats that will complement the oversize belt. Add more glitter to the attire with a small size shoulder bag and finish the outfit with a black panama hat that will complement the whole attire.
For a light-blue sleeveless dress, pair the outfit with leopard printed flats. A leopard print clutch bag will glitter and add style to the outfit. Accessorize the trend with a golden watch and necklace and you will be good to go for your evening or weekend walk.
Flats With Shorts
You can’t wait to try out flats with denim shorts on weekends when going for shopping. Wow, a combination of flats with denim short plus a fitted tee is the perfect outfit for sophisticated ladies. Whether you are tall and looking for shoes that won’t add extra height or you simply want easy-to-wear shoes, flats are the best option for you.
Ladies can wear flats with denim shorts and t-shirts or shirts. You can pair your plaid shirt with this outfit. I would recommend black flats that will complement the patterns in the plaid shirt. Since this is a weekend wear, finish the trend with a shopping bag and you will be ready to go shopping.
Flats With Leggings
Try leggings with flats. Well, ladies can wear leggings under a long tunic or skirt with flats. This outfit was originally for dancers. Dancers made this outfit popular but regardless of your dancing skills you can pull off this style.

For a chic, sexy, romantic and sophisticated outfit, wear black leggings with matching black flats. Finish the attire with dark shades and armlets that will glitter and flatter the outfit.

Tuck-in the top and belt the skirt with a small size belt for an elegant and sophisticated outfit.

Flats With Skinny Jeans A Tee + Blazer
Well, shouting color tops and flats with skinny jeans are a perfect match which looks like it was made and designed from heaven. In this case we will consider yellow, however others colors like pink, neon can as well apply to this outfit. Choose a nice top like a tee of shouting or bright color; pair it with a skinny jean (black or navy blue). Team the attire with flats of the same color like the top. The flats will complement the top. An oversize handbag of neutral color will definitely match with the attire and add style to the outfit.
