Hailey Bieber's flats prove that she's still very much in her Balletcore era—here's how she's styling classic slingback pumps and why you should consider adding a pair to your capsule wardrobe.

When it comes to getting fashion inspo, Hailey Bieber is always a safe bet, whether you're looking to recreate Hailey's leather jacket style to her cargo pants outfits (and don't get us started on Hailey's sunglasses). But lately, it seems TikTok's favorite dancer aesthetic has her heart.

The model-turned-Rhode Skin founder has fully jumped on the Balletcore bandwagon, from her cute hairbows to her latest pink slip dress and now, she's making a case for the ballet-style flat—and how she's styling them is actually so refreshing. Here's a look at her shoe game and where to shop for similar styles...

Hailey Bieber's patent flats

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, June 22, 2023, Hailey proved that first of all, she doesn't mind shoe-repeating—something that still seems rare among the A-listers of the world—and secondly, that pointed flats are surprisingly versatile.

From what we can tell, Hailey is wearing a pair of Saint Laurent slingbacks and before we dive into exactly how she styled them, here's our edit of Hailey B-approved pumps...

MIL's picks of Hailey Bieber flats

While Hailey's Saint Laurent flats are gorge, thankfully slingbacks are very in right now, so some affordable dupes are easy to find...

As mentioned, in her IG carousel, Hailey could be seen wearing the same YSL, gold-detailed pumps with a micro skirt, an oversized leather jacket and a pair of mid-wash, blue jeans—which she accessorized with her signature statement earrings (Hailey Bieber's earrings never fail to elevate a fit!).

While both outfits had a slightly different vibe, with the skirt being more date-night/formal and the jeans and white T-shirt fit being more casual, the shoes instantly made both look chic and sophisticated. 

Each look felt more mature with the addition of the pointed, patent sling-back shoes, which makes us think they'd actually make the perfect addition to our work capsule wardrobes

Though flat sneakers like Adidas Sambas are very popular right now, Hailey definitely proves that a pair of smarter shoes definitely deserves a spot in our rotation—especially in summer.
