THE BALLERINA TREND
By Catherine Gao
Get graceful and envelop yourself in a dancer’s aura this spring by wearing a pair of ballerina-inspired flats. This wardrobe classic is the definition of comfort and chic, loved by style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Alexa Chung, is making a comeback this year after the street style dominance of the cool and androgynous white sneakers, and the quirky loafer-slippers. Here are our top three tips to style this springtime essential:
- Wear with denim for a casual, off-duty look. A pair of cropped frayed denim will bring out the strap detailing of the flats, elongate your figure and add a trendy touch. Also, you can never go wrong with teaming ballet flats with denim skirts and shorts.
- A midi-skirt to look extra feminine. Pairing ballet flats with a chiffon or pleated midi skirt will instantly give you a dancer silhouette. We love the versatility of this combo, because it will be appropriate for any occasion- simply swap up the top and accessories.
- Don’t limit to the classic pale pink, white and black! If you gravitate towards a more eclectic and fashion forward style, wear flats that have interesting patterns, textures and bright colours.
