Girls, how do you pick an outfit when going social ballroom dancing? I can never pick something that would perfectly suit both latin and standard. Do you try to pick something that would suit both, or do you wear somethng that would suit one style best and put up with it not being so perfect for other styles? For latin I'd like something shorter and preferably tighter around hips, so that hip movement can be seen, for standard I'd rather have a longer skirt, knee length is good, and good if the skirt is full or bell-shaped. In my opinion short skirts look ugly when dancing standard, but knee and below knee lenght fuller skirts conceal all the latin movement and make it boring looking too. Pants look good with any type of dancing, but what is everyone's opinion of girl wearing pants to social ballroom dancing? I was thinking one solution could be to wear a long tight (not full) skirt with a slit? What does everyone think? Guys, what do you like to see on girls at social dances (when there is a standard/latin mix)? Girls, how do you solve this problem, what kind of outfit do you choose?
