The phrase comfortable and sexy ballet flats, is not an oxymoron. If you pair the right clothing with your ballet slippers, you can ooze sex appeal like Sophia Loren or Eartha Kitt, effortlessly. Because dressing sexy requires an attention to the fashion details, you need a primer to add a little seduction to your slippers. For women looking to infuse a little spice into their wardrobe, you can select flat shoes for occasions that require something sophisticated and slinky without sporting 5-inch stilettos.

  1. 1

    Wear pointy-toe flats. A chic alternative to round toe shoes, these flats boost your sex appeal by revealing a slight peek of toe cleavage. For extra sexy style, On Dressing Well recommends you pair your ballet flats with opaque footless tights.

  2. 2

    Pair your flats with leggings and a flirty summer dress. Worn with a long and flowing strapless maxi dress, nothing exudes comfort and summer style like colourful leather ballet slippers. For evening parties and summer barbecues, a long flowing cotton or rayon dress reveals bare and sexy shoulders up top.

  3. 3

    Choose pencil leg cropped trousers. The Lucy & Lolita website recommends you pair straight-cut trousers with your ballet slippers. The lean silhouette skims your body without clinging too tightly to reveal your thin and sexy frame.

  4. 4

    Bare your legs in shorts. If your legs are your best feature, wear shorts and ballet flats during the spring and summer months. When paired with empire-waisted tops and crisp white button down shirts, cuffed shorts reveal well-toned legs and classic style.

  5. 5

    Wear wrap jersey dresses. A jersey dress that skims and clings to your body, is the ultimate sexy style staple. A mid-length wrap dress flatters most figures and complements ballet flats beautifully.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't pair ballet flats with pleated trousers. These garments add bulk to your body and gives the appearance of shorter legs.
  • Avoid wearing skinny jeans with ballet flats. The combination of the low-heeled slippers and the thin jeans can make you look larger and wider.
