Royal Wedding Countdown: Union Jack ballet flats have spot-on British style

Union Jack ballet flats have spot-on British styleI’m a dyed in the wool Anglophile. In past posts, I’ve shared my passion for British style including iconic Burberry plaid, Grafea  leather bags, and traditional feathered fascinators.

Now, I have a new fave that I’m thrilled to share: Patriotic ballet flats from Butterfly Twists!

The Jacqui, pictured, is the ultimate look-at-me style for the girl who loves England. These simple flats get a patriotic makeover with the addition of the vibrant red, white, and navy Union Jack — and are sure to get noticed.

These flats (or ballet pumps as they say in London!) are also incredibly versatile. They look amazing in winter paired with dark wash skinny jeans and a red librarian cardigan (a personal go-to outfit), or in summer with a denim mini and tank.

And, not only are they adorable, these flats also have a secret. They’re foldable!

They come with a small cloth drawstring bag. So, you can toss them into a tote or handbag and pop them on whenever high-heeled sandals, pointy toed pumps, or constricting boots simply become too much to bear.

They are incredibly well made and are crafted of faux leather, with a sturdy one-piece heel and sole, and strong elasticized sides. So, unlike “disposable” foldables, Butterfly Twists won’t wear out after only a few uses.

They are also incredibly comfortable. The sole and heel offer plenty of support – you could literally walk all day in them. And, the elasticized sides provide a properly snug fit without and pinching or cutting, like inexpensive foldables tend to do. Retail $47

In addition to the Jacqui style, Butterfly Twists has a vast collection of ballet flats in so many different colors and styles – I want them all. A few of my faves include the Olivia, a classic quilted flat with a contrasting cap toe, available in six color combinations and very work-appropriate. I also love the clean, wide stripe of the Gigi. These have such a preppy vibe!

Butterfly Twists also offers other types of must-have footwear that has quintessential British style including Flat Sandals, Slides, Summer Espadrilles and Trainers with glam (aka athletic shoes). To see the entire line, visit Butterfly Twists.
