Cheat Sheet: Complete Your Holiday Wardrobe With These Ballet Flats!

By April Jamie Bustamante

It’s that time of year again and the perfect excuse to level up your wardrobe! With events, parties, reunions, and not to mention, all that shopping and vacationing, don’t get flustered into settling for mediocre basics. Dress to the nines with standout holiday style! Don’t worry about looking fab while staying comfortable. It can be easy, wherever you’re headed—we’ll show you how!

A golden rule to follow is to build your look from the ground up—starting with the right pair of shoes. Stilettos seem perfect for parties with its leg-lengthening benefits. However, while heels may look enticing, these death-defying shoes won’t get you far or very long in multi-tasking. You definitely want to look chic and feel relaxed at the same time, so opt for a pair that’s both versatile and easy enough for a seamless transition. But which one will complete your different looks—girl boss, domestic diva, party-ready chick, name it—you ask?

Look no further as global brand Skechers just released the answer to your style dilemma. Introducing Skechers CLEO: a new line of ballet flats designed with advanced comfort features! It’s got Skechers’ signature Air-cooled Memory Foam in the footbed for a cool, cushioned experience. The knit upper, which molds perfectly to your foot shape and expands as you walk, provides incredible breathability all day and night!

Here are some of the looks you can pull off breezily with Skechers CLEO!

1. The Ladylike. You can’t go wrong with classic feminine dresses. The Skechers CLEO - Blitz in Black & Charcoal pairs amazingly with almost any dress you slip into. Take this blue patterned dress by Georgine for instance. It’s perfect for social gatherings—simple but not underdressed. Wear this to the office by adding a structured cover-up or blazer

3,. The Laid-back. If you want to go for the ”I woke up like this (but still as gorgeous)” look, the stripped down style is just for you! To achieve it, slip on the CLEO-Blitz in Grey for that soft, modern touch, then couple it with a bomber jacket and a white statement shirt you have lying in your closet. Lastly, mix it up with a few girly pieces—say, a pink cap for a pop of color.

4. The Girl Next Door. There’s something about wrapped tops, handkerchief skirts, and the right shade of Navy that really bring out the girl-next-door in you. This style does not only make you look and feel sexy—it also makes boys go crazy. Pair these pieces up with CLEO – Razz Dazz in Navy & Silver in patterned charcoal grey to bring you from the weekend bazaar to afternoon drinks!

A basic top covered by a shiny oversized jacket, matched with a patterned skirt is a true unconventional statement. For the perfect pair of comfortable flats, choose the CLEO – Razz Dazz in taupe and gold nude tones to round out your glitzy look.
