7 Ways to Pull Off the Ballet Trend IRL

Lauren Eggertsen

Valentino, Acne Studios, Celine, and more, each so valiantly declared during F/W 16 fashion week that the most elegant way to dress this fall is exactly like a classical ballerina. Therefore, we bring you the ballet-inspired fashion trend.

Since sporting a tulle skirt and pink tights around the city might not feel like the most natural thing in the world, we are here to give you a handful of style tips that will definitely hit closer to home and that you can make work with the pieces you already have in your closet.
