We have also seen many of the current dress trends which are always evolving and it is why I will be walking you through spotting the best ballroom dance dress trends.

Know your kind of style

This has to be the most important aspect when it comes to choosing your ballroom dance dresses.

This is where most people fail since they are not well-informed about their uniqueness.

If you have watched and seen the top ballroom dancers you will have noticed what kind of style each top dancer chooses.

Some dancers chose a plain looking dress design while others choose a fancy one.

So why is your style important?

This is simple your style is what distinguishes you from the crowd and also it becomes your identity going forward.

This will also help people to know what kind of style you like so that they subconsciously identify you with this.

For example, our style is a simple yet elegant look. If you have seen most our dresses we try by all means to stick to this style whenever we buy a new dress.

Below is are few of our dresses which follow this style of ours.

As you can see the style of our dresses are very similar or uniform.

I will know be going into some categories of ballroom dance dress styles that exist. Please note that these are just current styles and they do evolve quickly yearly.

Plain and fierce look

This style is self explanatory as it involves a simple look which has fewer stones on the dress but is very attractive.

Now this look is the most basic and it comes from the olden days however it still works these days with the exception that it would not have a big weight design at the bottom.

Who is this look for?

This plain design is for people who want to look fierce on the dance floor and show there strength.

Generally this look is for people who are really good in dancing and who are top in there dance section.

Basically if you feel that you are dominate in your section that this section is for you.

Here are some famous world champs who have worn such ballroom dance dresses:

  • Mirko Gozzoli and Edita Danuite.

  • Paolo Bosco and Silvia Pitton (normally only on show dances)

However you do not have to be a world champion as I said, just be the best in your section and then let that dress define you.

This pattern is basically for people who also love to be unique and want something new.

The thing with this style is that it may be a bit difficult to maintain this style especially if you are looking to buy a second hand dress because it these dresses are very rare to get.

These dresses are general custom-made for a couple so you can imagine.
