Only last year fashion journalists were questioning whether or not classic ballet pumps were being sidelined for trendier flat counterparts such as brogues. Now thanks to the box office smash Black Swan, the ballet has once again become an inspiration for both the high street and designers alike.
Every little girl at some point dreams of becoming a prima ballerina, (this is a dream that stays with some of us right up until we are adults!) The beauty of the ballet look is that is uber feminine and chic and best of all it requires minimal effort; if you don’t want to be seen out in a tutu, all you need to do is turn to your footwear collection to create the perfect ensemble.
Luckily, help is at hand as Sarenza has over 900 different styles of pumps from brands all over the world. Here’s a pick of some of our top choices:
