Riva Ballerinas: A “Must Have” For Every Girl | Panache Shoes

Riva Ballerina Provence PewterSince the late 1950′s, ballet flats have been part of every girl’s closets. And Audrey Hepburn was among the celebrity figures that glamorized their use. After her decline, the fad again surfaced in the 1980′s, thanks to the likes of Madonna and Meg Ryan. The 90′s were not so kind though as grunge and working class fashion statements overshadowed the need for prim and feminine footwear. Fortunately, the footwear was revitalized by the late 21st century, giving way to different versions of Riva ballerinas. But this time around, they’ve managed to claw their way deep into the fashion industry’s framework, making themselves indispensable to the eyes of designers and consumer.

Every brand today sells ballet flats. And very few women have refused to own them. This speaks positively on how they are perceived and appreciated, which is not surprising given how smart they are in function and design. You can wear Riva ballerinas with bespoken outfits or random clothes. And you can attend high-class gatherings with them after going to the mall.

Riva ballerinas are also great with skinny jeans and leggings so you don’t have to feel conscious about showing off your legs. But just in case you are game, you could also put them on with rompers, shorts as well as mini skirts and pull it off. A lot of celebrities are actually mixing up their clothing choices with the flats they own so they don’t stop its evolution. Paris Hilton, for instance, has pushed the boundaries of their use, wearing them with every imaginable garment in the world – even a swimsuit. And alongside her, there’s Zooey Deschanel, Taylor Swift and Katie Holmes, who’ve encouraged further acceptance of the footwear with the revival of the1950′s/1960′s fashion sense.

All of them typically use ballet flats during spring and summer when the weather conditions are conducive. But you don’t have to store them outside of these time frames if you don’t want to. You can also wear your Riva ballerinas late in the year, so long as it’s not going to be ruined. Just follow the lead of Catherine Zeta-Jones, was photographed last September wearing ballet flats while walking in the streets of New York, and Alexa Chung, who was seen pairing hers with overalls and a Louis Vuitton bag while out and about in London.

The application of ballet flats are not really dictated by the seasons, only by circumstance. But you might want to pay attention to color trends since they do keep you in line with the rest of the world. Experts endorse the use of black, gray, purple, and red Riva ballerinas since they are sleek and eye-catching. But if you want something that pops out, you’re only choices are pink, emerald or yellow for this autumn and coming winter. When you’re buying, also see to it that you’re getting a quality product so you get more use out of the shoe. It would be a shame to know all of this and not be able to try it out because you got something that deteriorates easily.
