Being heelless, ballerina flats have a tendency to make ones legs appear shorter, so petite women may want to steer clear, or pair them with a shorter skirt, extending the amount of leg that is shown. Because of this same quality, skimmers are especially great on women of medium height or taller.
Ballerina flats with satin or embellished uppers can seem especially dressy and elegant, while leather skimmers are a bit more casual and are great for pairing with jeans and shorts. If you're looking for a fun, sporty look, a casual canvas skimmer is adorable with capris, shorts and short denim skirts.
What to Wear with Ballerina Flats
- Capri Pants
- Skirts with hemline at or above the knee.
Apparel to Avoid
- Pants that are too long.
- Pleated pants with narrow legs. This will make your mid section appear bigger, while making your legs seem shorter.
