In 1957, the eternally chic Coco Chanel launched her famous two-tone pump with a beige chassis and menswear inspired black toe-cap. A half-century later, Chanel modernized the pump into a bi-colored ballet flat with a beige leather upper and a black toe-cap with a $550 pricetag. Other high-end designers like Prada and Lanvin also feature chic two-toned flats in neutral hues with black toe-caps retailing for $340 and $515 respectively.
Even if I could afford shoes that expensive, I'd be petrified to wear them out of the house. If you're a fan of the bi-colored ballet flat style, I've found a great knockoff on 6pm.com. The Fitzwell Bridgett Ballet Flat is only $19.50 (70% off its $65 retail price) at 6pm.com. This bi-colored ballet flat features a bone-colored perforated leather upper and a black patent leather toe-cap with a charming bow detail. These shoes are great for cramming into your carry-on luggage since they do double-duty as both light and dark shoes as well as look as effortlessly fabulous with ripped jeans as they do a chic, black shift dress.
