Bunheads past, present and imagined, rejoice—satin, Lycra and tulle rule this fall with rehearsal-ready ensembles that can pretty much take you from the barre to the bar. We looked to our all-time favourite dance movies like Center Stage, Dirty Dancing and Step Up (because, tbh, nothing really beats a drama-filled dance flick) for inspo on how to twirl into autumn in all the best looks.
Center Stage (2000)
Why we love it: This is the dance movie that has everything—teenage drama, all the ballet movie tropes, Zoe Saldana in her first starring role (!), throwback girl crush Amanda Schull and some romance and mean girls thrown in for good measure.
How to get the look: Channel your inner ballerina in sleek bodysuits, cropped hoodies and wrap sweaters, stirrup leggings (trust) and satin ballet flats.
