Campus Runway: Cap-Toe Ballet Flats

When you’re on the hunt for a new pair of shoes, you have to be picky. While it’s important to find a shoe that’s comfy and wearable, you also want to be on the lookout for something that has the “it” factor. Enter the cap-toe ballet flat, this season’s new must-have shoe!

Odds are you already have a closet full of ballet flats. While that’s fine, isn’t it time for something new? With its toe dipped in colors like fuchsia, tangerine and bright green, the cap-toe will get you in the spring spirit in no time! Not only are they oh-so-charming and complement everything, but they also evoke a happy-go-lucky feel.

For a fun twist on the classic ballet flat, try the cap-toe! From budget-friendly to splurge-worthy, here are six cap-toe ballet flats that are calling for you!

Eclectic and Chic:
Banana Flat by Restricted in Turquoise - $38 (Francesca’s Collections)

Every girl needs a pair of stand-out ballet flats that are a little bit quirky, a little bit eclectic. That said, this pair from Francesca’s is perfect! Available in the most coveted shade of turquoise and topped with a chartreuse-yellow bow, what more could you ask for?

S is for Stripes:
Ladybug Toe Cap Neon Ballet Shoes - $44.76 (ASOS)

For a cap-toe ballet flat that is cute and brimming with personality, I recommend this playful pair from ASOS. Decked in black and white stripes with a pink tip, these cap-toes are just what you need to liven up your look!

Neon Color-Blocking:
Simply Vera-Vera Wang Flats - $44.99 (Kohl’s)

Spring is all about bold pops of color, color-blocking…and more COLOR! As it just so happens, this totally affordable pair of ballet flats by Simply Vera-Vera Wang fulfills both of these qualities. The color combination consisting of gray and neon yellow is unexpected and will surely add panache to any ensemble. Wear them with a little black dress or white skinny leg jeans for maximum perfection.

Quilted Perfection:
Vince Camuto 'Fawna' Flat- $88.95 (Nordstrom)

I know I’m not the only one dreaming of a pair of quilted Chanel ballet flats. Until I can actually afford them, however, these ballet flats by Vince Camuto will have to do. For under $100, they are such a steal! Covered in white quilted leather and finished off with a black cap-toe, they are quintessential for any end-of-the-semester events.

Comfy, Casual and Chic:
Bloch Colbie Ballerinas in Lavender - $118 (Anthropologie)

This pair of cap-toe ballerinas by Bloch fulfills my three C’s criteria: comfy, casual and chic. They’re casual enough to run errands in, yet totally chic when paired with black pants and a white blazer. Not to mention that they come in the most to-die-for shade of lavender (coral and pewter are also available). With a cute black bow and cap-toe, these are the crème de le crème!

Fun in the Sun:

Kate Spade Elina - $225

First off, you can never go wrong with Kate Spade. Second, coral is the ultimate springtime hue. Third, they’re made from cork and have summer-lovin’ written all over them! If you’re only going to splurge on one cap-toe ballet flat this season, then make it these – you won’t regret it!
