Pip Blogs: Flats are Back

Even Victoria Beckham, who famously said she’d rather die than wear ballet flats, has been spotted wearing them!  And although we love our heels, and they make our legs look fabulous, we can’t be wearing them all the time. 

So when it’s time for shopping, running errands and chilling out at the weekends it seems ballet flats and loafers are a whole lot more chic than a pair of trainers. It could be the influence of’ Black Swan’, or the Royal Wedding – as the Middleton sisters Kate and Pippa often wear them – whatever it is,  flats are back with a vengeance. 

Check out our selection below for the 10 hottest styles in store at Scarpa now:
