Strut your stuff in the studio with fashion-forward looks from Bloch
Dance teachers can often be heard saying a good dancer never blames their tools – well, mine certainly did as I hobbled round the studio in ill-fitting pointe shoes and an uncomfortable leotard that had been designed to the motto ‘practicality over style’. But dancers and students across the country can now rejoice in the knowledge that shoddy dancewear is certainly a thing of the past as Bloch Shop UK has succeeded in creating super stylish dancewear that not only looks great but works for the dancer too.
So forget unflattering syllabus leotards, you can now get your fashion fix in the form of luxe leotards, statement warmers and the-coolest-yet dance trainers in every colour under the sun.
And it’s not just dancers who are benefitting from Bloch’s stylish designs. Bloch’s ballet fashion has caught the attention of fashionistas the world over who are snapping up the dreamily dainty ballet flats and saying so long to blisters.
Top of my Bloch lust list are:
1) The Bloch Kate leotard – this leotard takes its inspiration from none other than the ultra-stylish Kate Middleton and more specifically her beautiful Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress. You’ll look regal and elegant as you twirl round the studio in this lacy number.
2) Bloch cable knit crop jumper – a winter in Britain doesn’t go by without cable knit being a key trend and with this super stylish number you can rock cable knit cool in the studio too. The crop style is perfect for ballet, keeping you warm without feeling too trussed up and allowing freedom of movement around the waist.
3) Bloch Enam lace skirt – floaty wrap skirts are old news now thanks to this so-now lace mini, which ticks all the trend boxes for 2013. The elegant lace design will make you feel pretty and provide a comfortable amount of cover up.
4) And finally… Bloch lightening women’s fitness trainers – I’m head over heels for these funky dance trainers. The sleek modern design means you can put your best foot forward both in and out the studio!
