Dance Inspired Wardrobe

dance inspired wardrobe

Dance inspired wardrobe. As the weather gets warm, my winter clothes start to feel too heavy and bulky and although I’ve always had a more tomboy style, I seem to want to pull out all of my pretty girly pieces. In addition, because of my small obsession with ballet, I’m tempted to wear my pointe shoes on a daily basis (pain notwithstanding). So this time of year, I start to search out soft feminine pieces that just make me feel pretty.

Pretty ballet flats. These are a classic and a must have shoe in every woman’s wardrobe, but as we all know, one pair is never really enough. How about finding a pair with pretty ribbons or bows? They will add a feminine slant to an edgy outfit or look pretty and dainty with a skirt for day.

Ribbon/hair scarf. I can’t get enough of summer scarves and am always tempted to wear a bow in my hair. I’ve never felt that I could get away with it, but this just might be the year to pull out a fun pattern and incorporate it into my look. Or I may just tie a pretty scarf on my bag.

Wrap top. I don’t know of anything that says ballerina more than a wrap top. As a plus, this style looks great on pretty much every body type and depending on the fabric, can be be either quite dressy or very casual. This is a must have item for your wardrobe.

Pleated a-line skirt. So I won’t go so far as to say that we all need a tulle skirt (although I personally have a not so secret love for them), but a nice pleated skirt can be paired with a tailored blazer for a business meeting, or a pretty blouse for dinner. If the style is chosen correctly then it can be quite the versatile piece. If you are looking to de-emphasize your hips then simply opt for a wider pleat and a thicker waist band. Really, if you stick to classic cuts there is a pleat for everyone. If a skirt is absolutely not for you then try a wide leg pant in a flow-y fabric, or better yet choose a pair of culottes which are so on trend at the moment.

Metallic and anything pink. While shimmer may not be for everyone, especially during the day, a touch of metallic can give you that extra bit of glam. Just remember that a little goes a long way and only opt for one item. I personally like to make it an accessory. Remember those shoes we just spoke about? Well, how about choosing a pair in silver or gold? Or perhaps a great bag in a bright metallic.

For me, this is about adding the most beautiful and elegant elements of a dancer’s wardrobe. I know first hand what it’s like to be sweating and straining only to make a fleeting movement look effortless. This isn’t about reality, but about re-creating some of that magic in my every day wardrobe, which makes me walk a little bit taller, almost like I’m floating on the sidewalk.

Do you include any sports inspired elements in your wardrobe?

What To Wear When You Have Nothing To Wear


  1. I’m totally in love with dance-inspired wear. I even buy clothes from dance websites (e.g., leotards, tights, flats).

    1. Ha! That is so awesome. I’m so jealous that you live in NYC… so many awesome shops. You need to check out Bloch, I think you would love their clothes!

  2. Oh that pleated pink, white and black pleated skirt is beautiful. I’ve always been tempted to buy a pair of ballet flat because they look so cute and feminine. However, I have yet to find the perfect pair.

    xo, Jackie

    1. I know what you mean. I have bunions and if the cut isn’t right then they look awful on me! I find I have to look for some with a higher vamp.

  3. Now and then yes, this is a great way to add feminine touches to your outfit! A wonderful list of ideas 🙂 Have a great day!

    1. I know, I’m a little bit dance obsessed at the moment! ha.

  4. Cheryl Everitt

    Thank you for sharing. My oldest granddaughter is your fan!

    1. Oh my pleasure! That’s so nice to hear. Please let her know that I’m happy to answer any questions she might have or to write post if she’d like to know something!
