6 Long Ballet Skirts We’re Obsessing Over This Fall

March 16, 2020

Longer ballet skirts are having a major moment. We’ve seen them popping up in the Instagram studio clips of dance fashionistas around the world—from American Ballet Theatre’s Isabella Boylston to The Royal Ballet’s Beatriz Stix-Brunell to Berlin State Ballet’s Iana Salenko. And with cooler weather on the way, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing even more calf-length skirts.

Beyond being trendy, long ballet skirts give any studio ensemble a sophisticated prima ballerina vibe (hi, Natalia Makarova). Try out one of these long skirt options.
