The ballet pump is a timeless shoe that never falls out of fashion, and one that, in a new era that champions wear-forever staples, is something every woman should have in her wardrobe.

The best way to put your ballet flats on display is with a pair of tailored trousers or jeans that show some ankle - Choose a pair that finish somewhere between the top of your ankle, or a couple of inches above. Mini skirts and ballet flats are a playful option, while midi lengths strike just the right balance of looking sophisticated and feminine.
