Black Swan and Ballet Inspired Black Dresses For Women

With the release of the latest blockbuster film, Black Swan, ballet inspired party clothes especially black dresses for women are likely to be a huge trend for the season ahead.

The film which is a psychological thriller starring Natalie Portman which follows the journey of a young ballerina working towards playing the role of a lifetime. The film was gripping for a number of reasons and its amazing costumes were just one of the attractions. Whilst most little girls have an inexplicable desire to wear tutus, this doesn’t necessarily go away as they grow up. The black swan costumes were designed by New York design duo Rodarte and inspired by the artwork of Degas and his ballerina series .

Whilst most of us would be a little embarrassed to wear a full ballerinas tutu as party clothes, there are so many ballet and black swan inspired clothes around at the moment, that we can definitely indulge our inner ballerina with something a little simpler like ballet inspired black dresses for women or black swan inspired, feather embellished party clothes. Wearing black instead of white or pink not only explores the dark side of ballet (as does the Black Swan film) but also helps to balance the look and prevent it from looking too frou frou.

Ballerina inspired pieces can be feminine and graceful. They are the perfect choice for party dresses but you can also work the off duty ballerina look for casual with leggings, ballet pumps, wrap cardigans, bodysuits and legwarmers (although not all at once).

For the perfect ballerina inspired party clothes look for black dresses  for women with delicate tulle or chiffon skirts as well as feather skirts. Also look for shoes with ribbon ankle ties. Wearing your hair in a neat bun is also a great way to add a little ballet inspiration to any outfit.
