We have a thread on smooth dresses (http://www.dance-forums.com/showthread.php?t=30143), what about one on standard dresses? Specifically, what kind of skirt is acceptable for standard? Is it OK to wear a smooth dress with a slitted skirt for standard? I wore my smooth black/mint green dress for standard at OSB this year (upon request), and a friend of mine pointed out after watching my video that I was the only person on the floor who had a skirt with a slit. We spend some time pondering if it is acceptable to have a slitted skirt for standard, but didn't come to any conclusion.
