Ballet flats are back, people!

Okay, let’s be real, the classic shoe never went anywhere. But it is true that this season, these feminine flats are popping up again everywhere from high-fashion runways to the TikTok trending page (thanks #balletcore!).

If you’ve let this footwear trend fall the wayside over the last few years, it’s time to invest in a new pair. Not only are they fashionable, but they’re practical, versatile and completely timeless. While these shoes are “in” right now, they never really go out of style so you can wear your favorite pair for years to come. Pair them with jeans and a sweater this fall or wear them with your favorite dresses — you really can’t go wrong.

Below, shop seven gorgeous pairs of ballet flats that you’ll want to kick around in all year long.
