It's important that while dancing you need to be able to feel comfortable, not to get too hot and also be able to have a lot of movement. Fashion tights can provide all of these!
This article aims to explain why fashion tights are the perfect garment to be worn for dancing purposes, no matter what style of dancing!
The fashion Hosiery industry has taken off and grown hugely over the past few years and has become a key accessory wanted and shopped by all. Fashion tights frequently appear on the big fashion catwalks, so why not add a gorgeous pair of tights to your costume on the dance floor! Throughout history, tights have often been worn for both dance rehearsals and recitals as they help legs to appear more toned and in shape than they sometimes are.. As well as professional dancing, fashion tights can also be worn for training, for dancing competitions in environments such as the gym. As these tights can be lightweight - (depending on the denier), they can often be much better to train in than regular tracksuit bottoms.
There is a variety of deniers of tights dancers can choose from to make sure your feel comfortable. The best way to find the perfect tights for you is to experiment with different styles and brands to find out which makes you feel and look at your best! Some may prefer the thicker pair whereas others may just prefer a much thinner denier to keep as cool as possible. As well as choosing between different deniers you also have a wide variety of choice on designs and patterns too. Patterned fashion tights always look great against plain garments as they do not allow clashing of prints. Textured tights are also hot at the moment. There are many examples including fish nets and laces to name a few - but once again don't clash textures with patterns (this could be a fashion disaster on the dance floor!) Also lace or fish nets are probably the coolest to wear because they are very airy with their cut out sections. However a 10 or 15 denier pair of tights could also be as cool. (But wearing a thinner pair means you will have to be extra careful putting them on and also not to rip them while dancing!)
However being a dancer you need to be careful not to wear a pair of tights with too many embellishments. This is because embellishments can get caught to perhaps dance partners or other things ripping them and ruining them.
A great way to make your fashion tights individual and unique is to create the slash effect in them, often seen on celebrities. This can easily be done by simply making a tear in the tights and ripping it into a slash. For a distinctive look, a coloured pair of tights can then be worn underneath the slashed footless tights so that the colour shines through to create an illusion.
