In the fashion world, ballerinas are not welcome lately. For some, ballerinas are a must-have item in their closet, while for others these shoes are a real fashion faux pas. However, you can look stylish in them. How to do it? We suggest.
At the beginning of XXI century ballerinas had their heyday: they became fashionable shoes, which you can put on without thinking. In recent seasons, however, this has changed – ballerinas are no longer as popular as they once were. However, you can still wear them with style.
History of ballerinas
Ballerinas were created in 1932 by Australian Jacob Bloch and were originally shoes for dancers practicing ballet. Rose Repetto – the founder of the famous shoe brand, decided to create improved ballerinas that would make dancing easier for her son. To do so, she invented a new technique called “backstitching,” which involved sewing an insole onto the sole, but on the opposite side. In 1956, Brigitte Bardot asked Repetto to change the original way of using ballerinas to produce lightweight and comfortable city shoes.
A year later, in 1957, Gabrielle Chanel made a two-tone shoe that resembled the current ballerinas: beige with a black toe. Today, two-tone ballerinas are the hallmark of the Chanel fashion house
