Ballet Chic!

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTCxkyPEJ_kKOMEDQU6gN-H_OB1Em2k8BTELS7b3VPiyQFcioEYSA

Tea rose pink, putty, nude, white and creams (now with Black Swan even black) bring me back to childhood and my ballerina obsession.

If you are as inspired as I was by all this ballet couture here are some a few pointers on how to wear the look.
  • Choose a v-neck or scoop top that is very fitted.
  • Pair it with a skirt that is loose and flowy – one with ruffles works wonders
  • Wear the skirt at your natural waist! This is important ladies, this will create that ballet silhouette. If you wear your skirt too low, it won’t look right.
  • Wear heels of any kind. T-strap, pumps, peep-toe, any kind will do, just be careful if you choose to wear flats. Wearing ballet flats will be to literal and might end up looking costume-like. You want ballet-chic, not an actual ballerina! Heels of any height will work and you will be suprised as you stand in the mirror how much it instantly changes the outfit to contemporary and how great it will make your figure work.
  • Try a long necklace.
  • As for hair: wear it any way you like, as long as it isn’t a bun (again you don’t want to look your going to Halloween as a ballerina, you want ballet-chic). My favorite is down with waves, or half up.
