Have you guys seen the previews for the new NBC show Smash? I’ve caught glimpses of the preview here and there, and every single time I think back to my dancing days. I know the show is more Broadway then ballet, but when I see the characters in rehearsal I miss dancing more and more.I’m not sure I’ll watch the entire season, but I just might tune in for the first episode to see if it grabs my attention.

Thinking about dance, rehearsal, and all that jazz (ha, see what I did there? jazz=dance, get it?) made me think about how fashion is often inspired by ballet and it’s related attire. So I put together a little sampling for your viewing pleasure.
Clockwise from left to right:
- This really is a wrap cardigan made to dance in. I looooved my warmup gear, it was so comfortable. I would absolutely wear this with a cute tank as a sweater.
- Some of Essie’s nail polish names are dance/ballet inspired. Ballet slippers, curtain call, and prima ballerina to name a few.
- Sock buns are all the rage right now, and there is no denying that these gorgeously full buns are inspired from the classic ballet bun. This foam bun circle is similar to the sock bun, but because it’s foam I think the hair stays put better.
- Tights, dancers wear them alllllll the time.
- This adorable metallic lace headwrap would look so cute with a low bun or any other up-do.
- This BCBG wrap sweater reminds me of a ballet wrap without it actually being one.
- Ballet flats have been around for a long time now, and due to their cuteness and comfyness I’m sure they’re not going anywhere. The flat toe on this pair is similar to point shoes.
- A light and airy skirt gives the feeling of a ballet skirt.
- More adorable ballet flats.
All this makes me want to pull out my ballet shoes (and tap shoes, and jazz shoes, and so on) and dance down my hallway! And I just might!
