Natalie Portman‘s standout role in Black Swan left us swooning for all things ballerina-inspired. From body suits to ballet flats, this is one trend we hope takes off as much as the movie has. Here are our picks for wearable ballet styles that won’t make you look like the understudy:
Haute Hippie’s Tulle Ballerina Skirt ($395) is one part sugary sweet, one part rocker tough. It features unfinished edges in each asymmetrical, ruffled tier.
Marc Jacobs gives the classic leather ballet flat a funky edge. These patent leather Logo Plaque Ballet Flats
($195) are ornamented sweetly with the MJ signature logo.
You can even pair Donna Karan’s Black Draped Jersey Bodysuit
($750) with jeans for a long torsoed-ballerina look. For a night out? Opt for a jersey skirt and classic black or beige pumps to accentuate that long silhouette.
For a more delicate look, we love Thayer’s Dance Skirt
($136.50, down from $195). This satin mauve mini is enrobed in a pleated tulle overlay.
Don’t forget to layer an American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Bodysuit ($24) under sheer tops and bottoms. This form-fitting spaghetti strap tank is as versatile as it is functional.
Do ballerina chic right with a BCBG Cropped Wrap Sweater
($52.80, down from $88). This bodycon V-neck cardigan creates a relaxed yet graceful effect.
