Winter Style Tips – En Pointe.

Winter Style Tips – En Pointe.
Carly Jacobs

I’m a shocker. Every winter I refer back to my standard ballet-style wardrobe. It’s such a simple and beautiful way to keep warm.


* Dark denim jeans with a roll neck mohair sweater and black ballet flats.

* Grey, loose fitting, over-the-knee socks worn with ballet tights and a bandage skirt.

* A sleek bun in your hair, simple hoop earrings and a knotted, fringed scarf.

* Anything that wraps.

* Minimal make-up. A touch of light foundation, a swipe of lip tint and a tiny dab of blush. Nothing else.

* Exposing one shoulder.

* Giant knits with long sleeves.

* Blush, cream and the palest of pink.

* Head bands.

* Opaque tights and mary janes.

* French manicures.

What about you? Do you have a fall back winter style that you drag out when the temperature drops?

Oh and this post is for one of my readers, Nadist. She’s a ballet teacher from New Zealand! xxx

    I watched Flashdance for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it made me long to wear loose, floppy jumpers and leotards.

    I tend to wear a lot of vintage styles in winter, particularly 50’s gamine and bombshell looks and also 60’s mod outfits.

    in winter I tend to fall back on a very mod/schoolgirl kind of look. thick tights, short skirt and woollen v-neck jumpers. I have a lot of nice wool coats too but lately I can’t stop wearing my dad’s old duffel coat that I altered to fit me! I’ve also been wearing the same pair of black leather mary-janes every day for about the last month!

    I always loved the wrap-around cardigans that ballet dancers wear. Flattering and easy to layer, and super cute!
