I’ve had my fair share of ballet pumps over the years and pretty much always have a pair in the car to change into for driving but now they’re making their way back into my main shoe collection. They’re such an easy style to slip on that are safer for driving in than flip flops and that look just as good with jeans as they do dresses. Here’s the best Chanel ballet flat dupes and authentic styles to add to your shoe collection this season.
Are Chanel ballet flats in style
Ballet flats are one of the biggest footwear trends for 2023 and very much in style. The difference is that Chanel two tone flats or Chanel ballet flat dupes are more likely to stay in style and are something that you can wear for years to come versus some of the more fashion forward styles this year.
For the most classic style go for black leather, a classic beige leather pair with the iconic black toe caps or a quilted pair of shoes (solid or two-tone). For a women’s fashion look that’s fresh for Summer white and black are an elegant style that go with everything. The contrasting leather, suede or patent leather cap toe always creates a sophisticated aesthetic even just worn with leggings and an oversized blazer. If you’re looking for more of a statement pair, tweed, denim or glam metallic styles are on trend but are are also more likely to date.

Splurge or save on Chanel ballet flats dupes
For the most part deciding if Chanel ballet flats are worth it or not is so personal but they are known for being the crème de la crème of ballet flats. What’s your budget, how much will your wear them, how important the cc-stitched toe cap is to you etc. I’m not ashamed to admit I’m quite a labels and logo person and tend to splurge on shoes that I know I’ll wear to death but there are so many good lookalike styles you might not need to. Although the soft leather on the Chanel ballet flats is what really sets them apart. A lot of people will tell you they’re the most comfortable shoes (besides sneakers and slippers) that they own.
