Choosing how to style ballet flats this spring is easy, thanks to these fun fashion tips. Cute, comfortable, and versatile, flats are the shoe staple every girl needs in her closet as the weather warms up!
If you’re looking for the perfect go-to spring outfit that covers all the bases, you can’t go wrong with a pair of great-fitting jeans, a cute tee, and a lightweight sweater. A button-up like a girls' cardigan is perfect for the season, as she can take it on or off to adjust to the changing temperatures. Flats of any color or style look fabulous with this type of outfit and dress it up a notch. To really make this look stand out, consider trying a pair of flats in the same color family as the top, or opt for a contrasting pair in a bright shade for a cool pop of color.
Spring dresses are just the thing for when the days start to warm up, and they’re even better paired with flats. Because girls’ ballet flats have that great balance of an unfussy yet chic style, they can easily be worn with all types of dresses. From cute floral prints to A-line skirts to solid-color jumpers to short dresses, girls of any age can create a cute outfit with a spring dress and flats. This is also a good look to layer up for spring; the flats pair well with tights, and a bolero or cardigan can be a great addition too. Don’t forget about the spring holidays; flats make a chic and safe choice to wear with girls' dresses for dressier events.
Cute and comfortable, leggings are an absolute staple for little girls. Not only are they on-trend, but they’re also super comfortable for kids to be active in. Get the best of both worlds when she wears leggings paired with flats. The flats take the look up a little, so it’s casual but still very stylish. Great tops to pair with leggings include girls' tunics, long sweaters, long button-up shirts, oversized fleeces or sweatshirts, and long tees. You can also consider wearing a dress over some leggings on those chillier days. Add a cute spring jacket or girls’ zip-up fleece, and she’ll be ready for anything spring brings!
Another great spring option is pairing a cute skirt or skort with a girls' shirt and flats. Try a floral top with a solid skirt or vice versa. A simple tee and a corduroy or denim skirt is a classic combo and the ideal match for a pair of adorable ballet flats. Button-up tops with simple skirts can also have a crisp, cool look for the season, and a patterned pair of flats can even give the simplest skirt outfit an instant boost! An option like a straight chino skort and a pastel sweater will have a sweet, sophisticated look with flats as well.
If you’re looking for a girl’s outfit that has the perfect blend of a polished yet casual style, try a polo in her favorite color paired with capri pants! The flats are an unexpected twist with this look since this type of outfit is often worn with loafers. It adds a unique element that still works well with the pulled-together-yet-casual spring feel of this type of outfit.
Ruffles are trendy yet classic, so they’re an ideal option for girls that want to stay stylish! Ruffles are also great for spring with their adorable, breezy feel. The sweet style of ballet flats is right on par with anything ruffly, thus put together, they’re truly a winning combo.

However, feel free to let your little girl mix and match different ruffle pieces to create her own stylish outfit. Trust us; if there are ruffles and there are flats, it’s a style combo sure to look fabulous!
