ArticleAmerican fashion designer Michael Kors once said that modern fashion was largely inspired by dance. Today garments influenced by ballet can be seen all around the catwalk. Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of Chanel, firmly believes: “Ballet is an extraordinary art: this torture of the body to make something so graceful. All this hard work, to look effortless.” Both haute couture and pret-a-porter runway shows are highlighting the ballet tutu as a must-have fashion trend for the upcoming season. Let’s have a look at catwalk, red carpet and street fashion trends featuring the fashionable ballet skirt.

On the runway

Recently some of the most prominent fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Allure and Harper’s Bazaar have been widely covering the ballet phenomenon. Many fashion designers have switched to more feminine styles incorporating flowing skirts and dresses, and the ballet tutu has turned into the centrepiece around which some clothes collections have been built. In search of femininity in style and design, some designers have chosen the ballet skirt as the epitome of good taste and style and because a girl wearing it can’t but stand out in a fashion-forward crowd. This piece of clothing has run the whole gamut of styles from Rock’n’Roll (Jean Paul Gaultier) to Avant-garde (Chanel). Moreover, being much into ballet, Karl Lagerfeld has designed an exclusive ballet outfit for the ‘The Dying Swan’ as part of the 2009 season of Ballets Russes held in London. Fashion houses Dior, Marchesa, Rami Kashou and Jill Stuart have also created stunning runway ensembles featuring the ballet tutu.

On the red carpet

Hollywood has played a significant role in popularisation of the ballet outfit. Many fashion experts think Sara Jessica Parker starring in the TV series Sex and The City is the pioneer who has introduced ballet inspired garments. American actresses Nia Long and Lindsey Lohan have been spotted in the same Jill Stuart dress comprising a white bodice and a short black ballet tutu. American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez was dressed in a light pink Marchesa tutu dress at a Fox party while US performer Katy Perry is well-known for her love for ballet inspired outfits both on stage and in daily life.

On the street

The ballet fashion trends couldn’t but influence ordinary people. Glossy magazines, TV and Internet coverage of red carpet events have impacted a modern woman’s wardrobe to a great extent. No wonder fashion-conscious girls worldwide sometimes incorporate the ballet tutu into their party, casual and evening outfits. Looking ultra-feminine and stylish at the same time is one of the current fashion trends that many girls are doing their best to follow and believe ballet skirts might be helpful when it comes to creating a super-trendy look. The ballet skirt may be a practical piece of clothing as it could be worn with a number of items. In fact, it may be paired with nearly everything: a black tank top or a white shirt, a leather jacket or a skinny blazer. Sky-high stilettos, fashionable wedges, flats or boots could beautifully accessorise a ballet inspired garment. Some fashionistas believe the sky is the limit.

OT: fashion help?

Is anyone good at this?
I have always been a very casual dresser but I need to step up my work wardrobe a little. I am buying some nice basic mix and match pieces but my problem now is shoes.
What kind of shoe might work with jeans (we have 2 jeans days at work, but I still want to look polished/dressy), slacks and pencil skirts? This is for fall/winter, so I'm thinking closed-toe.
I'm not necessarily trying to only buy one pair of shoes, but I would like something with a slight heel that can work with all 3 of these bottoms
