Sneakers will always have a place in our hearts, but after several season spent wearing chunky shoes, sporty styles, and footwear that’s anything but feminine, well, you can’t blame a woman for itching after something more girly.

Now, flat footwear is taking a turn—namely, lace-up ballet flats which are primed to takeover slip-on sneakers and pool slides this spring. The style’s a little more polished, perfect for work or weekend, and comes with a seal of approval from industry It-girls and fashion bloggers.
