There’s something about ballet that fashion folks are just drawn to — maybe it’s the intricate costumes on stage, or the fact that ballerinas are basically models in tutus, perhaps it’s the footwear (although with the decline in popularity of the ballet flat…I doubt it) but regardless of the reason, you really can’t avoid the topic of ballet in fashion. Whether it’s a celeb-crazed workout, a spring gala, or on pointe Instagrams (get it?) let’s dive a little deeper into fashion’s obsession with the dance genre.
How many times have you heard a friend or acquaintance stare at your flat shoes and say, those are cute…but I could never wear flats? Or the one girl who always makes a point to say every time someone comments on her outfit, I only wear heels? This is something I could once very much relate to, but with my shoe closet growing (and with less and less heel height) I wanted to see if you all felt the same.
Still trying to figure out what to wear during this awkward time where the weather fluctuates between spring and winter on the daily? A knit jumpsuit may be the answer to all of our problems…
It’s funny that for quite some time, I pretty much refused to wear flat shoes. Then when loafers and oxfords came along, I rarely wore heels. The reason for never wearing flat shoes is that our options were limited to traditional ballet flats, which let’s be honest…are ugly. But if loafers and oxfords aren’t your thing and sneakers are too sporty for you AND you still need an excuse to ditch your heels…I have the perfect solution.
