Tutus. Blush colors. High buns. Flowy skirts. It's all part of the world of ballet. But ballet fashion doesn't just belong in the world of barre and pirouettes. Ballet fashion can easily be incorporated into everyday style. Here are some ways you can feel like a ballerina with your style, even if you have never heard of Baryshnikov (the famous Russian ballet dancer).
High buns, also known as ballerina buns, are a great way to incorporate a little ballet style into your look. High buns are also great as a second-day hairstyle or if it is really hot outside and you want to stay cool in fashion.
Gather your hair into a high ponytail. If you have long hair, wrap the hair around the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. If you don't have very long hair (like me), you can use a bun maker (it looks like a mesh donut) and slip your ponytail through the hole. Wrap your hair around the bun maker and secure with bobby pins. Finish the hairstyle with hairspray for a sleek and sophisticated look.
Yes, tutus can be worn as a serious fashion piece, not just for costume parties. The key to making the tutu work for everyday fashion is all in the styling. If you want to wear a tutu, keep the rest of your outfit very simple. Go for a big fashion statement with the tutu!
Just because you don't spend hours working on one ballet move doesn't mean you can't wear ballet-inspired pieces of clothing.
