Ballet Beautiful

There’s a new take on feminine fashion emerging this season, inspired by the power of dance. It appears that the resurgence of ballet in the popular culture market is making its mark on the fashion world with a range of pieces emerging mimicking some of the classic styles seen on stage at the likes of Covent Garden in London or the Opéra Garnier in Paris. To help you pirouette your way into the best of the Spring/Summer trends, we’ve put together a quick list of ballet beautiful essentials.

The shoes: Invest in a great new pair of ballet pumps to get your ballerina look off on the right footing. One key staple is the flat, nude-coloured pump which is not only perfect for this kind of look but will also go with everything else in your wardrobe meaning you’ll never be in search of suitable summer footwear again.

The skirt: For Spring/Summer 2012, eschew the traditional tutu-style mini in favour of a more graceful, knee-length approach to the ballet beautiful look. A soft A-line skirt in delicately layered and floating fabrics makes for a great basis for any daytime or evening look. Take a look at Dior’s recent ballet inspired Paris show and stick to pale, neutral colours – nude, shell pink, cream and taupe – or take to the opposite end of the spectrum with deep midnight shades like black, navy and dark green. Matching tights and coordinating shoes complete the look.

The accessories: Keep accessories small and understated with delicate earrings, single neck chains or a silk scarf tied loosely at the neck. Bags should be small and unobtrusive with simple, cross-body styles proving the most versatile as well as the most popular among the designers this season. Don’t fall into clichés by tying a ribbon around your hair or opting for one of those bow-adorned headbands that are really only appropriate for pre-teens. But do go for a loose bun at the top of the head, held in place with kirby grips and plenty of shine boosting spray.
