This Classic Shoe Style Is Comfortable—And Will Go With Everything You Own

·3 mins read

If I were to rattle off the top shoe styles that are timeless and classic, black flats would rank high on the list. Similar to black sandals, pumps, and booties, this footwear silhouette is essentially no-fail given its highly versatile nature. That ideal pair of black flats—whether that’s a ballet style, flat mules, or loafers—can be dressed up or down and could probably go with just about everything you own. Have a go-to denim and sweater look? That pair of black loafers would look great. A blazer and tee situation? Just imagine that ensemble with chic flat mules. Oh, and of course, many of these silhouettes are also extremely comfortable as well given the flat shape.

While you may have a pair of black flats already in your offering, I thought an edit of some current styles could be of interest just in case you’re looking to add a fresh silhouette into your wardrobe. With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out a curation of chic black flats available now.
