Five Ways To Update Your Black Flats

I guarantee every girl in the world owns a classic pair of black flats. They’re the perfect way to clean up an outfit and always work when you’re in a rush. I love the classic look, but every once in a while I get the urge to be a little edgy. With “heavy metal” and all black outfits in style this fall and winter, I plan on investing on edgier all black footwear so I stand out amongst the masses. Here are five unconventional pairs of black flats to consider:

Fallon Black Skull Detail Suedette Ballet

I’m a sucker for skulls. I think they’re cute rather than cunning and these dainty suede flats by Fallon (Only $35, available at are definitely on my wish list for this fall.

Sigerson Morrison: Walda Cap Toe Ballet Flats

A small accent goes a long way with these Sigerson Morrison Cap Toe flats ($395, available at

B Brian Atwood: Amata Flats

These flats by B Brian Atwood ($275, available at are simple classic black leather flat with a twist. I love the double ankle strap on these flats; it delicately updates the shoe with a trend that’s huge this fall.

Steve Madden: Valantne

Even though this pair of flats isn’t entirely black, I’m completely drawn to the Dalmatian pattern of these Steve Madden Valantne flats ($119.95, available at

Marc by Marc Jacobs: Studded Mouse Flats

Always leaving the best for last, this pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs Studded Mouse Flats ($250, available at is edgy and playful in a subtle way. At first glance they appear to be simple black leather flats with gold studs lining the top but up close you see that the studs are in fact creating the face of a mouse. What a conversation starter, right?

Will you buy any of these flats for fall?
