Ballet Fashion

Ballerinas are known for their grace, fitness and beauty. Apart from being in awe of their dramatic athletic abilities, I always love the costumes that also tell a part of the story being expressed through dance. Whether dressing for rehearsal (grey, pink and black knits and basics) or a performance (tulle skirts and dresses) there are plenty of pieces that can be worn for either occasion.

Tulle, sequins, dramatic make up and buns scream girlishness and class combined. It is easy to achieve the ballet look from net-a-porter.com.

Needle & Thread offer gorgeous evening wear featuring tulle and intricate beading. The designs are beautiful and they use cream and black tones.

This Topshop Unique pink velvet mini skirt, also from Net-A-Porter would look brilliant with a black or grey knit and back tights.

The Australian Ballet also have an online shop where they sell ballet themed clothing. I love this casual off-the-shoulder sweater.

Keeping with the grey theme, Witchery have some beautiful wool items that are perfect for the off-duty ballerina. They have just released their  Autumn collection, and many of the pieces are amazing.
