Tan Ballet Flats

Tan ballet shoes are a staple, but what’s the best way to style them? Here’s what you need to know about pairing tan shoes with the colours in your wardrobe.

The many shades of tan

Tan is more of a colour range than a specific shade. So, before you decide how to style your tan ballet flats, it’s worth taking the time to figure out what hue you’re working with. Some of the most commonly found shades of tan include:

  • Camel, a creamy hue with biscuity undertones
  • Whiskey, a slightly darker, richer tone with an almost orange look
  • Beige, a paler tan that’s too warm and too saturated to classify as an off-white
  • Taupe, a neutral tan shade with a prominent grey base

As a general rule, the richer, redder the tan, the more neutrals and earthy-toned colours you should incorporate. Let’s dive a little deeper.

How to wear tan ballet flats with neutrals

Neutrals are a no-brainer – they are the ideal choice for any shade of tan. Pair a white dress with beige shoes or your terracotta wool trousers with your whiskey-toned flats.

While black is neutral, it deserves a category of its own. Black and tan don’t always pair well together, so tread carefully. Try a deep, rich tan hue and a charcoal grey-black. Avoid wearing a true black with cocoa-toned tan or a pale beige shade, as the two may clash.

Which colours work best with tan shoes?

Aside from neutrals, make blues and pinks your top choices. Sounds surprising, we know, but both blue and pink complement the orange-toned warmth of various tan shades.

Let’s start with blue. On the colour wheel, blue is opposite orange – it’s no wonder your camel ballet flats pair so perfectly with your blue jeans. Roll your hem or go for a cropped pair of jeans to elongate your silhouette.

As for pink, choose a soft, pastel pink and a bold tan shade. Again, you want to create contrast.

How to Measure Your Size

1. You will need a ruler, pen, and a piece of A4 paper.

 Place the piece of paper flat on the ground and stand on it. Make sure your foot is flat and your foot is in the middle of the piece of paper.

 Draw a mark behind your heel and another in front of your longest toe. If one of your feet is larger than the other, use the longer foot to calculate your size.

4. Measure the distance between the the two lines.

5. Find your measurement on the ladies’ size chart above to determine your correct size. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend taking into consideration whether you're purchasing a closed in shoe such as a boot or ballet flat and whether you'll be wearing socks or stockings.

Also remember your left and right foot will vary in length and width, so choose the size you think will be most comfortable for you.

Each shoe style is fit tested in Australia and we do everything we can to make a fit as close as possible to the correct AU standard sizing measurements.

Use these sizes and measurements as a guide only. You know your feet best!
