Building Your Bellydance Wardrobe

We’re talking about building a dance wardrobe this weekend. We’re taking time to look through our collection of clothing and that of friends to make sure we have the most vibrant of colours and styles to start the new year. No matter what your aesthetic, primary colours should be in your treasure chest. For tribal dancers, dark colours and jewel tones in the same base of the primary colours should be present. Extend that to green, tangerine, peacock blue and deep reds. For those often on the festival circuit, 25 yard skirts are key!

Creating a wardrobe can be very easy when you base it on the colours. Making sure the cuts and patterns are flattering to your frame, find discounts online such as those we offer weekly at You can stock up on tons of items and accessories to make your ensembles pop and look really bright with eye catching colours stage. A great set of costumes simply enhance what you bring to your audience. It doesn’t stop there. Couple your skill with the cutest costumes and cool trending raqs and dancewear in class.

Costume Gifts

The perfect gift for the dancer in your life is often a new costume. has picked out three that are flattering and fun to wear…and are in stock ready to be owned and worn with delight by all the raissat in your life. We’re looking at flowing chiffon in a symphony of colours with ‘Fit for Fatine’ shown above.

We also have several ensembles with great coverage in the torso area. They are accompanied with harem pants that are comfortable to wear. You can pick out a matching hipscarf, gold or silver zills, cover-ups and thobes to wear over the outfit until it’s time for the event or ceremony.


Then there’s “Chebba Shinewhich is a personal favourite for many of our staff due to the intricate cut of the top and the stylish layers on the pants and hipscarf. Which one would best suit your favourite dancer friend? Post a photo of you with your favourite dancer pal this week on our Facebook page and we’ll email you a couponcode for your next order from
