Most little girls have had a brief affair with ballet; plies, ronde de jambes, strict French madames, and itchy tutus. (I had a particularly awesome leotard with a panda blowing bubble gum.) Then we get older and realize we can’t all be ballerinas due to things like dedication and genetics. Well, luckily with fall coming you can indulge your inner dancer by dragging your friends to Swan Lake or a variety of other productions, or by interpreting these five pieces; think tulle, lace, and grace.
Dolce & Gabbana showed just how wearable ballerina-inspired pieces could be.
