In Love With Layers

This past week we featured an amazing costume of sheer fabric in layers. We love this look because it’s elegant and ruffled. It also allows you the cool breathing room that many dancers forget is needed even during winter months. Chances are the places you’re dancing in don’t have the air on full blast and a lot of cozy places even have the fire place blazing. Therefore wearing a little too much velvet can have you breaking a sweat a lot sooner than you might imagine. Layering sheers work well in this situation.

This amazing costume is one in a series of new looks set to debut in the coming weeks. It’s a skirt with a choli top layered over a sheer black lace skirt accompanied by eastern jewelry that you’d find in a Turkish Bazaar. Love the look?

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.

Terrific Tops for Raqs!

Dance tops are a wonderful addition to your raqs wardrobe. Colourful bright and easily adjustable, they make great pairings with dance pants and skirts. Recently we refreshed our look at tops pairing them with ruffled skirts and different types of harem pants.

Some fans and dancers like to wear their raqs tops as regular eveyday wear and that’s cool. We suggest pairing them with cool accessories and earrings to match. These tops are head turners and people may ask you about them. They come in plus size and, again, are adjustable so you can tie them in the front or the back.

They also make great troupe wear. So if you’re looking for something fantastic to display on stage, consider the adjustable choli tops that tie in different ways. They range in price and we suggest pairing them with your favourite pair of pants and skirts for the best deal. Send us a photo of yourself wearing your raqs couture and we’ll enter you to win some cool prizes from missbellydance.com

Happy Dancing!
