Today you can order clothes online, and many go traditional routes; but have you thought about dancewear? Dancewear has some qualities about it that make it especially desirable for everyday use.

For one, it’s meant to be seen. The costumes worn on stage are designed to inspire, dazzle, and—perhaps most importantly—allow for a free range of motion. Many formal outfits are made to look good, but moving is difficult, and they’re uncomfortable.

Dancewear may have some level of discomfort depending on how tight it is, and the physique of the wearer. But generally, a costume you use to pirouette and leap across a stage will allow more free motion. Imagine an evening gown that allows you to do a backflip. That’s dancewear, essentially. Well. Some dancewear.

If you’re a dancer, you might want to put some of your dance garments to use as everyday clothing. This is a style of dress that has become increasingly fashionable over the years and has now entered the mainstream. Following, six dance-inspired
outfits will be explored to help stimulate your imagination.

You can pair such a bottom with any top you like. Go sophisticated, wear an ugly Christmas sweater for an ironic contrast—just ensure it contours with your physique!

Get creative, and pair it with something that makes you feel like the flowers you’re evoking.
