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.


To assist you with building an amazing raqs wardrobe in the new year, MissBellydance is offering 25% off $80 or more. Browse the site and grab what you need. Use code hipdrop16 and see the savings! Send us photos of your MBD haul and we’ll happily feature you in our blog and social pages. We look forward to seeing the selfie hauls posted to our Facebook page and tagged on Twitter and Instagram. Can’t wait to hear from you! @missbellydance 🙂 Tell us when you follow us or if you have been for some time. We’ll enter you in our end of the year drawing for accessories from MBD! 🙂

Raqswear for the Real World


Glamour is important when you’re going out on stage. But you also want to look good when you’re in class and out and about with your friends. We’ve discussed the wonderful world of bellydance workout wear and practice outfits in the past but did you know these can be worn as outfits too?

Pair these pieces with your favourite long knit jacket for the fall. Do it up with a little jewelry and cool items from your dance treasure. Let the whole world know you’re into raqs with the right kind of wear.


MissBellydance has these in lots of different styles and colours and colourways. They’re just the right price for festival season and dance class. But the fabric is limited and won’t last forever. Get these while you can and let us know what you think.

Bold Colourful Looks for the Stage

imageLooking for something cool, breezy and beautiful for your troupes? Try Raja Raqs! It’s a gorgeous bra and bolero top with skirt and veil. It’s a popular classic cut that is often worn to celebrate regional raqs and bellydance. Got an earthy song with great rythm or something that is soul stirring and evokes a powerful scene? Consider this bold, bright ensemble to compliment your troupe’s work.

You can buy this in three different colours, blue, black and red. Each one is designed exactly the same, no worries on getting one with one design and the other with another. The waist is elastic and the bolero has a secure velvet fastener. It’s a really great option for troupes looking for a lively ensemble to compliment the look and feel of a strong dance set.

Even more helpful will be our 25% discount code “summer2015” on all orders of $75 or more. Get in on that deal now. It ends very soon. Send us photos of you and your troupe in this great ensemble and let us know where you wore it or plan to wear it. We’d love to highlight your events with our network of friends and dance family
