The balletcore trend isn’t all about pink, pastel colors. Keep your ballet-inspired look simple and chic with a black-and-white palette. Here, we’re styling Simone Rocha’s dress with Miu Miu’s sparkly cotton socks and ballerina flats. The look is complete with a sleek Jil Sander handbag.
Tulle All Over
This outfit doesn’t need many accessories because the garments are a statement on their own. Noir Kei Ninomiya’s tulle top and midi skirt are peak balletcore with ruffle details. The ensemble is finished off with Simone Rocha’s adorable platform shoes and Off-White™’s Burrow Bag in white.
We’ve built a ballet-influenced outfit around Heaven by Marc Jacobs’ colorful jeans. The denim pants are styled with Dion Lee’s corset top along with Recto’s tote bag featuring ruffled details. Nodaleto’s chunky Bulla Babies complete this ensemble.
Pop of Lilac Purple
We’re keeping it simple for this all-black look featuring Molly Goddard’s tulle skirt and Khaite’s knit bralette. To add a bit of personality, we’re pairing this look with TOGA ARCHIVES’ flats embellished with metal adornments, as well as SHUSHU/TONG’s pearl necklace. Courrèges’ lilac crossbody bag finishes off the fit with a pop of color.
Casual in Ruffles
While the balletcore might seem to be dominated with tulle skirts, it’s okay to repurpose small details to match your personal style. Here, we’re wearing Noir Kei Ninomiya’s ruffle-trimmed cotton shrit with FRAME’s baggy striped jeans and TheOpen Product’s platform boots. For accessories, we’ve included Dilara Findikoglu’s full brim hat and Cecilie Bahnsen’s Fryd bag.
