I saw a thread on the AT forum, and thought it would be fun to talk about salsa "uniforms". What do you like to wear when dancing salsa, and why? What looks do you really like on others, or not so much? Do you think the salsa look is pretty standard worlwide, or do some countries get more dressed-up than others? What I love about going out salsa dancing is that I feel it gives me the license to dress more sexy than I would elsewhere. I like wearing tight jeans with heels, showing a little bare back and/or belly at times, bare arms etc. Normally I would never dress this way walking around the city, as I don't like that kind of attention from random guys on the street. But somehow my outfits all feel "right" at salsa venues. :--) I've never worn a skirt or dress yet salsa dancing, although I am looking forward to doing so sometime. I think I'll feel so "pretty", being in a swirly dress and dancing! But I think I'll always prefer slim/tight pants, as it just feels more conducive to down and dirty salsa, versus in a dress or skirt. I love the towel-hanging-out-of-the-back-pocket look on guys. While a towel really is essential for certain guys and/or at certain (HOT) venues, I think for others it's worn as more or less a salsa fashion accessory. Oh, and there's another look for some women... where they'll wear sweat-type pants rolled up at the bottom, and they'll wear socks with their dance shoes (sandals). This seems to be more of a "dancer" look.
