Elaborate and Elegant – Costumes for You!

Oh there’s nothing that compares to getting a new costume at the start of the year. You plan all of the places you’re going to wear it. You want to look elaborate, not gaudy, elegant without the kitchen sink of accessories. There’s a method and a know-how to getting dressed for a successful show or raqs presentation. This week we’re looking at the elaborate costume and how to jazz it up without going overboard. We also want to hear from you!

Our Tempi set is a fine example of elegant raqswear that has plenty of embellishments. You’ll want to wear a set of bangles with this and a lovely veil. Much more would be a bit over the top but hey…sometimes over the top raqs! What do you want to see accompanying this ensemble? Let us know.

Coastal Jewel references the edgier styles we see on both coasts. From hard core rocking raissat in Los Angeles and Seattle, to bold city bound dancers killin’ it in the cafes of New York and Miami. We’re pairing this with our silver sets. This one being one of our favourites. But is that what you would do? Let us know. Tell us, how would you pair your accessories for this elegant and elaborate raqswear?

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 missbellydance.com. 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.

Bling For Bellydance Shows

Hope you had a great holiday yesterday. It’s now time to shift gears and think about parties and gifts for the ones you love. We’re looking at sparkling things and cool accessories to wear to shows. There’s something for everyone in our stock. If you’re hoping for something traditional and elegant consider a ‘Mano de Fatima,’ Hamsa, or regional hand ornament. We have several styles that work well. These have a cultural and regional significance. They mean a lot to us and are worn by all sexes and genders.

We also have lovely necklaces that go well with those looking to glam up their outfits. There’s a wide variety and we’re fond of this one. It looks good with so many personal styles.
