My husband and I are passionate dancers. When we go out for swing dancing I like to wear jeans with a top as the dance place is not very formal. It is more a country and western style place. When we go out for milongas or Latin I prefer a flapper type dress of the sort I posted a couple of weeks ago.
Another reason to wear jeans for swing dancing is that we do some aerials and lifts. Thus, a skirt or dress is not a suitable choice. On the contrary, Latin dances and milongas are well “grounded”. Thus, a feminine dress works well and looks great.
Here is my Saturday nite “dance” outfit: Rolled up washed jeans, studded heels, a sequin stripe top, and a faux fur bomber. I bought this bomber two years ago for going out when Tucker had a joined venture with Target.
P.S.: I have to admit that I switch to dance shoes when we arrive at the dance place. I can walk in these heels, but they are too high for safe swing dancing.
