From denim maxi skirts and cargo pants to metallic clothing and sheer layering, there are so many exciting new trends to try for spring 2023 — and we’re about to welcome in another major style to try this season. Introducing balletcore, a feminine, sporty-chic way of dressing inspired by the elegant dance style.
In case you haven’t noticed, ballet-inspired pieces have started making their way into the mainstream fashion scene over the past year. The Miu Miu ballet flats had a major moment with celebs including Bella Hadid, Ariana Grande and Rosalia rocking the style. Now, dance warm-up essentials such as shrugs, leg warmers and wrap sweaters alongside delicate details — think baby pink, lace and pleats — are all over our social media feeds for spring 2023.
