Although there is no specific dress code for ballet performances, you should dress up in a neat, respectful manner. The smart way to attend the ballet is to dress up rather than dress down, and several dress code styles are safe choices for such events. Choose a noble color, a good fabric, and a simple, elegant cut. Think about an outfit you would wear to a nice dinner out, job interview, or to the church. Business casual attire is appropriate for a matinee show, but an evening performance may require cocktail looks and formal clothes.

Ballet is an elaborate spectacle of beauty, grace, and elegance, so it would be lovely to share that same balance with your outfit choice. It’s rather simple – opt for timeless, sleek, and elegant pieces like an LBD, a silk dress, or a refined blazer and pair them with dressy shoes. Take a look at simple but chic outfits to get a better idea of what to wear to the ballet.
