While we love fall's crisp air, pumpkin spice treats, and, of course, the official start of the ballet season, there are some downsides. Cooler weather means that unfortunately it's no longer practical to throw on shorts over your leotard and pretend it's a shirt. Does the thought of putting together outfits for autumn stress you out? Don't worry—we've got you covered. We've pulled some of our favorite dancers' street styles from past issues of Pointe to give you the fall fashion inspiration that you're looking for.
Former Ballet Memphis Dancer Julie Marie Niekrasz
Julie Marie Niekrasz reminds us that there really are dresses for every season. Niekrasz has a thing for vintage, and tries to channel Grace Kelly whenever possible; this piece comes from a local Memphis vintage shop. But whether you like your dresses from the 1950s or from the mall, you can always throw one on to create a more formal after-class look in seconds.
