Maybe it’s inspired by the upcoming Sex and the City reboot. Maybe it has more to do with our newfound desire to dress up for even the smallest occasions. Whatever the reason, ballet staples, like tulle skirts, wrap cardigans and square-toe ballet flats, are majorly trending right now, and we’re honestly super excited about it. Balletcore (as global shopping platform Lyst has dubbed the trend) is a fabulous combination of comfort and glamour. Think, cozy, adjustable knits and easy flats that can easily be worn with the rest of our quarantine uniforms of sweatpants and anything cashmere, but a swish of tulle and dainty bows that have the power to make us feel more dolled up. Here, 15 ballerina-inspired pieces to shop and wear this spring.
Balletcore Is Definitely the Prettiest Spring Trend (and It’s Surprisingly Wearable)

The high crewneck of this full-seat bodysuit is flattering on just about every figure, but it’s the deep V in back that we love most of all. If you’re feeling adventurous, add a lariat necklace worn backwards to really emphasize the back cut.
