Good news for anyone that’s been feeling nostalgic about their childhood dance classes—spring is giving you an excuse to dress like a ballerina. That means you can wear pale pinks and grey tones, ballet flats, gauzy tulle, parachute silks and even leotards again.
Back in September, designer Tomas Maier of Bottega Veneta sent models down the runway in tap shorts, cropped knit wrap tops, and one very incredible pale pink cashmere wrap coat—but it doesn’t end there. Stella McCartney’s spring collection is chock full of parachute silks and fluid ruffles, and the designers at Tome used a ton of blushy taffeta and pink sateen. The bottom line here is that it’s now completely acceptable to leave the house looking like your headed to a ballet barre class even though you’re really just going to Trader Joe’s. In fact, it’s encouraged. So take advantage while it lasts, and enjoy wearing slouchy grey cardigans with pale silk camis, or flowy tulle skirts with bodysuits—there’s no better time to do it.
