This weekend is your last chance to catch the Houston Ballet's performance of Swan Lake. If you're on the fence about attending because you just don't know what you'd wear (#firstworldproblems), we're here for you with a little "What to Wear There" inspiration board.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when choosing your attire for the ballet, the most important being the undeniable desire one gets to become a ballerina after the performance.
Let me backstep. I don't mean become become. That's seems hard, what with the hours upon hours of practice, pain, and sweat. What I mean is, you'll be so overcome with the grace and beauty of the dance that you'll be plieing and pirouetting out the Wortham Center door. My advice: Don't fight it. Wear flats.
You'll also want to don your best Degas-esque ballerina dress. Something with a little flow will make for a beautiful twirl. Then add a jacket because those theaters are always chilly. I'd opt for a motorcycle jacket because classic and edgy make a great combo (also because I'd totally be Zoe Saldana's character in Center Stage). A pop of color in a stud earring and a high bun for your hair, and you're off to the ballet. Buy tickets here.
