Black flats, especially for commuters, are something of a closet essential. The versatile color makes them a match for any office ensemble, while the low or nonexistent heel guarantees all-day comfort. There’s a reason they have such universal appeal. While some might classify them as boring, we like to challenge that idea by finding the most stylish pairs.
While a simple ballerina flat will never go out of style, there are some more intricate designs that make black flats anything but basic. Consider these options worthy investments for long office days, spontaneous plans, or even a first date. We’ve rounded up our top picks for you to shop. We’ve got choices with bows, sleek chains, and shearling. There is no doubt they’ll become your go-to shoes regardless of the season. So grab your favorite pair ahead.
