I'll be the first to admit that my favourite shoe trends have a flat sole. As exciting as teetering on sky-high stilettos or bold platform boots can be, you'll most likely find me in flat boots or trainers for their clear comfort factor. That doesn't take away from their stylish nature, but they aren't the most elegant when dressing up. Thankfully, the trending shoes of 2023 hit all the chic notes needed to add a polished finish to any look—enter ballet flats.
