I have always admired ballerinas. I can’t imagine the amount of work that goes into a performance, espcially at the college level. I caught this Fashionista on her way home from dance practice and couldn’t get over her simple sophistication. She shows the perfect way to easily jazz up a workout or dance ensemble en route to your next class.
Name: Avery Mallory
Major: Dance and Pre-Law
CollegeFashionista: What three pieces in your closet can you not live without?
Avery Mallory: Leggings, Vince Camuto Boots and Ralph Lauren sport coat
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
CF: How do you stay stylish and put together while going from dance class to other places on campus?
AM: It’s simple: boots, leggings or tights, T-shirt and sport coat. A fitted jacket can make all the difference.
CF: Do you ever wear your ballerina bun besides to dance class? It’s adorable!
AM: Yes! When I don’t have time to fix my hair it’s an easy quick solution.
How to: Yes, this Fashionista is wearing tights and not leggings. Some may say fashion faux pas, but I say she’s a ballerina so she can do what she wants! For those jetting from a dance or yoga class, a quick and easy way to maintain sophistication on your way to an academic class is a fitted jacket. This Fashionista chose a menswear-inspired blazer, that is perfect to throw on over any leotard or tank; try this Topshop version for a similar look. Boots are always a good go-to shoe when looking to spice up a casual look. You can get reasonably priced black boots just about anywhere; DSW has a few options. A ballerina is not a ballerina without her signature bun. Lucky for the rest of us Fashionistas, there is a kit to help perfect your perfect ballerina bun!
