Every Girl Is Going to Lose Her Mind Over Zara's Ballet Collection

The A/W 16 runway collections debuted arguably one of the most graceful looks of the year—and one which we couldn't wait to get our hands on—the dancer trend. Designers like Valentino, Céline, and Acne Studios sent out looks engulfed with tulle, lace-up ballerina flats, stirrup leggings, and the like, each more delicately irresistible than the next. Although the fashion algorithm is shifting towards the "see now, buy now" method, we did not expect to see this trend on the racks of fast-fashion retailers quite this early. But, of course, Zara once again gave us exactly what we have been looking for. 

Not only did Zara just release pieces inspired by this trend, but it even created its own subcategory for it on its site titled "Ballet Collection." When Zara pushes a trend this hard, you know it's about to blow up. Whether you are in the mood for a head-to-toe dancer-inspired look or a simple pair of lace-up sateen flats, look no further than this gorgeous collection. Bravo, Zara. Bravo.
