Ballerinas become fashion icons at European Fashion Week

Delicate and comfortable look is the hallmark of the balletcore trend

During the European fashion weeks, the brands showed the playful and fun trends that will be featured in the next season. In addition to the revival of the 90s style, which triumphed at New York Fashion Week, in London, Milan and Paris, balletcore also appeared in the streets and on the catwalks. The fashion and style consultant, Camile Stefano, draws attention to the typical look of classical dance applied to casual style.

But she calms down: it's not about dressing up as a ballerina, but adapting the details of the costume to the look of the streets. Thick socks with sandals, for example, which were in evidence at the Spring/Summer 2023 shows by brands such as Dior and Fendi, refer directly to the dresscode of the dancers and are the mid-season must-have. “Colorful models or similar to leg warmers match very well with high heels or doll-style shoes”, explains Camile.

The minimalist glamor and delicate touch, typical of ballet, were also present in the creations. In the fashion show of the Italian brand Moncler, in Milan, a ballerina opened the event. The stylist explains that the winter coats were brought to the stage making a perfect sport-chic combo. “Inspiration also has to do with the movement and lightness of dance. These concepts are applied to the clothes, which stop being so extravagant this season", she analyzes.

The big fashion brand inspired by ballet studios are flat shoes. This season, the brands opted for flat versions instead of high heels or platforms. “In London, the brand Tod’s brought models inspired by dance shoes”, points out the expert.
