You may not be doing pliés at the barre, but why not dip a pointe-perfect toe into one of Fall/Winter's sweetest trends? Ballerina chic danced right onto the runways at Valentino, care of its creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Below, three ways to style ballet-inspired pieces that will make you look like you came straight out of a modern-day Degas fantasy.
EASY: Blush pink wrap bodysuit
Streamline the blush wrap top—a dancer's practice uniform—with similarly-hued separates. Tuck under a rose-colored pleated midi, sling an oversized white denim jacket over your shoulders, then step into white sneaks. Equal parts cool and demure!

Mango oversized denim jacket, P3750, Power Plant Mall
MODERATE: Lace-up ballet slippers
You just can't get any more ballerina than this. Balance out the saccharine appeal of satin ribbons with slouchy-yet-tapered mom jeans and your favorite workwear men's shirt. For extra layering points, add a thin black camisole on top!

HARD: Tulle tutu skirt
Tutus are usually saved for the stage, but we challenge you to take it to the streets. Toughen tulle up by pairing yours with leather ankle boots and a chunky, interesting knit. Don't forget the attitude.
