the balletcore designer fashion trend is back

From the return of ballet flats to Zara’s collaborative partnership with the New York City Ballet to Rodart’s tulle-infused Fall Winter 2022 collection, the balletcore trend appears to be here to stay.

The perfect combination of glamor meets cozy, balletcore includes everything from tulle skirts to soft satin tops, bodysuits, wrap sweaters and cardigans, leg warmers paired with skirts or over tights and, of course, ballet flats. Think anything feminine and comfortable that allows you to move freely, like a dancer would.

What’s not to love?

The great thing about this style is that it’s easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. You can go the athleisure route with a wrap workout top and leggings or you can head to a night out at the opera or balle with a long tulle skirt, bodysuit and sleek flats for a real Swan Lake vibe.

Ahead, our 12 outfit ideas to keep your wardrobe and style on point(e) this season. Your inner child will thank you for wearing these dainty, beautiful looks.
