There seems to be a trend with belly dance costume where patterns and prints are not only acceptable but desired!
Long gone the days where beads were the thing. The more beads you had on your costume, the prettier it was considered!
I am starting to be a fan of this trend as well. I don’t like noisy costumes and beads just seem to get in the way sometimes and make dancing a bit less comfortable. Most dancers are used to practicing in comfortable clothes and when they put on a costume, they have to slow down the pace and be careful so the beads don’t go flying all over the place or have a wardrobe malfunction!
Now the trend if to bring that practice feel of attire to the performance costume. Keep it simple, comfortable and dare to be different so prints are in and the most beautiful prints are the flower prints! Here are some gorgeous floral costume ideas.
