Our 10 Favorite Pointed-Toe Ballet Flats

Not just for Aubrey Hepburn.


Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Popularized by icons like Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face and Bridget Bardot in And God Created Woman, ballet flats have rightfully earned their seat at the table. Gaining popularity in the '40s and '50s, and then again in the '80s—thanks to no other than Princess Diana—ballet flats have become the city girl's go-to shoe. The most buzz-worthy pair at the moment? Those featured on the Celine Spring 2021 runway. But if you're looking for a different iteration of this trend, opt for a pointed-toe style for a more polished look. The options are endless.
