Spring is here and it’s time to embrace ballerina style ! I love this dress from tba for Urban Outfitters because of the colour but also the ballerina pattern. It’s 100% silk, and is a lightweight sleeveless dress featuring printed panelling and mesh inserts; finished with smocked waist and concealed zip closure at the side. It’s £150 and avaialble now from the Urban Outfitters website.
Chloéhas a heavenly brown silk-mousseline midi skirt, recently featured in Elle magazine, which has an internal grosgrain waistband, pleats throughout, a hook and press-stud fastening at back, and is fully lined. 100% silk. Dry clean only and £1,445 from Net-a-porter.com. You can see the Elle-styled version (with Capezio pointe shoes if you dare at £40.99) here
I’ve never been able to make up my mind when it comes to shoes, so here are two options. The Chanel shoes might work on a day when the sun is hidden behind the clouds, and the French Sole Ballerina flats are perfect for all the days when it’s not raining.
At £133 these pretty shoes will see you through every occassion with style to spare. Called Hester, they are Raso Satin Hester in Cream 113 and leather lined. They are available from the Pirouette range on the French Sole website.
See you at the ballet in your new spring styles !
