Hailey Bieber.

Hailey Bieber often sports the trendiest looks, and the early fall season is no different. The Rhode founder and social media influencer shared an Instagram collage of pics from Paris on Sept. 26, in which she incorporated a few hot trends into one ensemble.

While many of us associate “autumn” with a new pair of boots, ballet flats are back and they’re one of the most versatile shoes of the season. As Bieber demonstrated, you can wear a classic black pair with a chunky sock and a pink ballet-inspired dress, or go more casual with a pair of jeans and a cute sweater.

Either way, in case your closet could use a ballet flat refresh, we’ve listed a few of our favorite looks below for your shopping convenience.

If you like the buckled strap look of Bieber’s shoe, this one is even better, since you can slip it right on and off with ease.

This top-rated style is available in seven different colors, and the bow detail provides a sweet touch.

These nude-and-black flats are a great neutral option besides just basic black. The shoe is also available in several bright hues.
