About Square Dance Clothes
Swing your partner, do-si-do. Square dance clothes help you make a splash at square dance events and bar dances. This form of dance goes hand in hand with country, western, and folk music, so traditional western clothing helps add to the charm. Gents can deck themselves out in western-style wool pants and plaid shirts, bolo ties, and belt buckles. Women can look like the belles of the ball in prairie skirts, circle skirts, petticoats, ruffled blouses, and western shirts. Traditional fabrics like plaid or floral cotton, flannel, denim, and wool look great on the dance floor, as they play up the folky style of the music and dancing. If you square dance competitively, you can opt for flashier outfits. Look out for brighter colors, fuller skirts, and flashier belt buckles. You can even add a bit of sparkle to your outfit with some sequins. Movement and comfort are also important, so be sure to choose clothes that let you promenade, do-si-do, and swing to your heart's content. Whether you attend dances in your hometown or you compete all over the country, you can find a vast inventory of square dance clothes on eBay.
