Defined by tulle skirts, corsets, sheer fabrics, flats and more, the ballet aesthetic is one of the latest fashion trends to sweep TikTok. As the world slowly unfolds, we put away our sweat and casual wear, opting for stylish clothes and accessories instead.
In this latest installment of Hypebae’s Style Guide, we explore different ways to rock the balletcore trend. If you’re new to this aesthetic, a great place to start is to use a monochrome palette or incorporate small details into your everyday wardrobe. Some of our favorite designers who fit this look perfectly are Simone Rocha, Cecilie Bahnsen, SHUSHU/TONG, Miu Miu, Noir Kei Ninomiya, and Molly Goddard.
Keep scrolling to see five different ways to rock the balletcore trend.
The balletcore trend isn’t all about pinks and pastels. Keep your ballet-inspired look simple and chic with a black-and-white palette. Here, we styled Simone Rocha’s dress with glitter cotton socks and Miu Miu ballerina flats. The look is complete with a slim Jil Sander handbag.
This outfit doesn’t need a lot of accessories because it’s a statement in itself. The Noir Kei Ninomiya tulle top and midi skirt is a balletcore peak with ruffle detail. The ensemble is complemented by the adorable Simone Rocha platform shoes and the white Burrow Off-White™ Bag.
Ballerina Ready to Go
We’ve created a ballet-influenced outfit around the Heaven by Marc Jacobs colorful jeans. The denim pants are styled with a Dion Lee corset top along with a Recto tote bag featuring ruffle detail. Bulla Babies from Nodaleto completes the ensemble.
Pop of Purple Purple
We kept it simple for this all-black look featuring a Molly Goddard tulle skirt and a Khaite knit bralette. To add a bit of personality, we paired this look with TOGA ARCHIVES flats adorned with metal embellishments, as well as a SHUSHU/TONG pearl necklace. The Courrèges lilac sling bag completes the match with a pop of color.
Chilling at the Ruffles
While balletcore may seem dominated by a tulle skirt, it’s okay to reuse small details to match your personal style. Here, we’re wearing a ruffle-trimmed cotton Noir Kei Ninomiya T-shirt with baggy FRAME striped jeans and TheOpen Product platform boots. For accessories, we included a Dilara Findikoglu full hat and a Fryd Cecilie Bahnsen bag.
