Bal­let Beau­ti­ful

Look (UK) - - FIRST -

Ever since Valentino’s bal­leri­nas seemed to float down the cat­walk – with soft polo­necks worn un­der­neath their vel­vet dresses, satin shoes laced around their an­kles, hair firmly bunned – it seems that the world, sar­to­ri­ally speak­ing at least, was born to dance.

Some la­bels, like Zara and H&M, were so over­taken by the urge to demi-plié that they re­leased en­tire lines of bal­let-in­spired sep­a­rates and del­i­cate chif­fon frocks. From the pret­ti­est of tulle skirts to wrap dresses to in­dul­gently soft knits, the rest of the high street also has a bal­let bounty so vast it seems fu­tile to try to re­sist.

If tulle isn’t your bag, channel Miu Miu’s rib­bonadorned flats in­stead, thanks to Zara’s silver shoes com­plete with a black rib­bon tie. Fail­ing that, a wrapfront cardi­gan will look per­fect with jeans and loafers. We could make a joke here about your style be­ing en pointe, but we won’t.
