I'm pretty sure that black ballet flats will be a wardrobe staple of mine until the day I die. I've gone through countless pairs, but I think my latest iterations are my favorite, at least when it comes to the way they look.
J.Crew has always been a standby for simple ballet flats, but they've updated the style a bit in recent years. This version has a higher vamp and a heel that adds a nice lift. The black ones go with literally everything and make me feel like a true Parisian, so until I make the leap and purchase a pair of Chanels, these will be my go-to.
Kiki Ballet Flat, $150 (but currently 30% off with code GOSHOP), available at J. Crew.
