It's no secret that we love a good fashion/dance collaboration, which is why we're fangirling over model Shalom Harlow. And this model took the whole "dance, but make it fashion" vibe to an entirely new level during a Versace photo shoot—and we're in awe. She paired her stylish, spring jumpsuit with an arsenal of dance moves that Michael Jackson himself would be jealous of. Her performance was so captivating that everyone at the shoot couldn't help but cheer her on. Who can blame them—her moves are lit 🔥!

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.

Simone Messmer's ensemble points out the biggest difference between summer and fall: Jackets! And not heavy, practical winter parkas, but fun, light jackets with the power to instantly transform any outfit. Messmer's selection comes with quite a bit of history; it's her best friend's father's army trench. We also love Messmer's slip-on shoes; they're a reminder to wear all of your favorite no-socks-necessary shoes this season before the snow starts to fall.
