Flats for Prom: Style Guide 2023


These days, traditional prom “rules” and traditions are starting to change to make room for individual style. While prom is all about glam, glam does not mean sky-high heels are a necessity. What if your date is a bit shorter than you, or if you simply don’t like subjecting your feet to a pair of heels, no matter how fabulous! Well here at Faviana we have some good news for you, flats can be just as glam at prom, and can complete an amazing prom look. Here are some great ideas for How to Rock Flats at Prom!

Notably Nude

Nude flats are a classic go-to, and can work with almost any prom dress color or theme. Go for a pair with a pointy toe for a touch of interest, or have your shoes perfectly blend in with a rounded shape. Keeping your shoes simple also leaves lots of room to add fun accessories! Highlight your look with a fabulous prom jewelry - necklace or layer on dainty bracelets. Tip: be careful when getting in or out of your prom ride in nude flats, as they can scuff easily- but a pair of pantyhose will take off black marks easily!

Girly and Glam

If you want some flats that will capture everyones attention, go for something with a fun color and a little embellishment. Pastels are perfect for spring, but if you are going with a lighter color for your dress, go bold with your shoe color! But be sure not to go over the top with multiple colors or too much embellishment, as you want to keep the focus on your dress.

Simple and Sophisticated

A simple two-tone flat is perfect if you are looking for a shoe that doesn’t stand out, but still looks chic. Go for a black, white or nude to keep things simple. If you want to add a little interest, maybe a touch of gold or silver on the toe or heel can complete your look. An ankle strap is also a life saver for breaking it down on the dance floor, as the added stability will allow you to dance all night.

Laced Up and Lovely

A Pair and a Spare

A laced up flat is effortlessly edgy. Look for a laced up shoe in a statement color, or go classic with black leather. If you are rocking a cocktail length dress try a pair that laces up your leg for something new, or with a longer style stick to lacing that just goes over your foot. For an ultimate edgy look, try a lace up flat that also features studs.

Whether you are a flats person or not, these styles might just turn you into one! Go for comfort and class in a flat at prom this year, and be chic as ever making your entrance. Your friends will wish they had chosen to rock flats at prom as you effortlessly rock out on the dance floor, and don’t have to worry about taking up space in your clutch for spare shoes!
