Latin Dance Dresses come in a wide variety of styles and colors. Some people favor dresses covered in fringe while some go for sequins. One thing that most Latin dance dresses have in common is their length. Dresses of this style all tend to be somewhere around knee length in order to best show off the fast and precise footwork of most Latin dances as well as call attention to dancer’s the sexy hip action.
One of the most popular colors for Latin Dance Dresses is red. Red is a color often associated with all things “hot” or “sexy” so it goes hand it hand with Latin dances. Other popular colors are bright pinks, yellows, blues, and metallic colors. But there’s something about a red dress that makes a bold, sassy statement that no other color does. Latin dance dresses in pastels or muted tones are rare.
When dancing, dresses that move and spin with you are ideal. For this reason, many Latin dance dresses feature several layers of ruffling on the skirt, if not all the way down the dress from neckline to hemline. Each layer of ruffling can fly out on its own to create a stunning visual effect. Sometimes in place of ruffles the dress in covered in fringe that not only flies out during a spin but bounces and moves with a dancer. Just be careful when wearing a dress covered in fringe because fringe can easily catch on your jewelery or accessories, those of your partner or even other dancers around you.
If such a high maintenance dress doesn’t appeal to you, consider a simpler handkerchief hem. Latin dance dresses with a handkerchief hem still offer a sassy cut but with less fabric to catch on your accessories. This style is usually accompanied by a simple halter or sleeveless cut top. This style is also more versatile; with the possibility of being worn as day wear when paired with a bolero or sweater.
Some Latin dance dresses have a very different, distinct style that calls to mind a Spanish Flamenco dancer. These dresses are characterized by longer, heavier ruffles on both the skirt and around the shoulder on the sleeves. These dresses also often sport large polka dots or bold prints in bright, dashing colors. It is not uncommon to find dress with white or black in them to help offset and highlight the colors or patterns in the fabric.
Many party dresses can also double as Latin dance dresses. These dresses often go on sale just after Homecoming or Prom season. Of course, if you can’t wait for it to be that time of year to have the best selection possible, you can always turn to the internet to provide you with a wide variety of dresses.
