BALLET-INSPIRED FASHION: BALLET NECK TOPS & WRAP SWEATERS

I think I enjoyed my ballet warm-ups as much as if not more than my ballet costumes. I had so many cozy knit sweaters and tops that I would wear to ballet class.  Ballet warm-ups are meant to accentuate the shape so it’s only natural that the style of collar bone-baring boat neck tops and waist-accentuating wrap sweaters would become popular in mainstream fashion. I have a wrap sweater I got from H&M in 2003.  I held tight to my wrap sweater addiction even through the past few years where they, for a time, were nowhere to be found.  No other sweater style is as flattering!  I am happy to see that they have returned.

  1. I love this post – I didn’t realise so many of these styles were around, I really like the All Saints cardigan, I can see it with a pair of skinny jeans and a simple top. I still have my old ballet wrap cardigan, several sizes too small of course, but brings back warm memories…

    ps Elle McPherson said she thought she wanted to be a ballerina, but she quickly realised it was all about wearing the tutus 😉
