Get these ballet-inspired fashion ideas from Lauren Conrad

There’s something magnetic about the effortless beauty that comes along with being a ballet dancer. What little girl doesn’t dream of wearing a glittering tutu, slick bun and pale pink pointe shoes? If you’re like me, that daydream never quite went away. As you’ve seen in some of my previous Kohl’s collections, tulle skirts and ballet flats are perfectly acceptable for most occasions. I’ve been pretty excited lately because fashion has been merging with the dance world yet again. Think soft tulle, dresses with lots of movement and lace-up ballet flats fit for a ballerina. The pastel colors are an added bonus too. I just can’t resist pale pink and powder blue!

I think we could all take a tip from the ballet world, especially in the fashion department. If you’re looking to add more soft and feminine pieces to your wardrobe, these ballet-inspired picks are essential. Keep scrolling to see which items I’ll be adding to my closet ASAP…

    The ballerina look may ebb but it never goes away. SJP did it in Sex and the City. The very chic Blair Eadie has been a fan for a while. It seems to be a matter of snapping up the skirts especially (do ballerina shoes ever disappear?) when they’re available in the stores and then wearing them ever after.
