Even a reality TV star like Michael Kors can be inspired by someone else’s gig.

His spring show was something of a sportif homage to “Dancing With the Stars,” full of luxe looks boasting dancerly ease. Kors reworked the classical high-stepper’s wardrobe, pairing slinky T-shirts with tailored pants and lean blazers with leggings. Naturally, he picked up on the traditional taupe-black-gray palette throughout, covering a lot of neutral ground in a show that could have used a little editing.

But even for those who don’t know a shuffle-ball-change from a pas de deux, the collection had loads of great pieces. Fluid jersey dresses trailed wide satin ribbons, while pailette-slicked minidresses delivered a little Fosse-esque pizzazz. And Kors’ fabulous knits — kimono cardigans and plush pullovers — all but stole the show.

Warming up never had it so good.
