How to choose the perfect tango outfit – 2 elements
The perfect tango outfit does more than simply allowing you to dance. If you are looking to understand your wardrobe a bit better, you are at the right place.
How to choose a tango dress for stage or gala according to your figure
The first part of your tango outfit is your dress. Choosing a gala or stage dress is something personal. There are many factors you might want to consider, such as, but not limited to:
- your personality,
- type of event,
- place of celebration, and
- time of year.
In this article we are not going to cover all this.
Instead we’ll focus on how to choose a stage or gala outfit, an elegant party dress in the best Mimi Pinzon style, according to your figure.
How to chose a tango dress based on your figure
When choosing a dress you are looking for one that makes you feel good, special and elegant. The dress should reflect your personality and highlight your best features.
The first advice is always the same: look for a dress that makes you feel safe, comfortable, relaxed, elegant and original. Instead of choosing something randomly, look for something that is designed and thought out to the last detail to fulfill one mission: to make you shine at a special moment, be it at a festival, a milonga, or the on a stage in front of thousands of people.
Take a look at the following picture. Can you identify which is your body type?
Don’t worry if your body type is not represented 100% by one of the above images. Each woman is unique. Just find the best representation, and let’s see how this will help you choose the right tango outfit.
Now take a look at the following image.
Each dress corresponds to the body types you saw above.
You can see for example how the third dress is highlighting elegantly the characteristings of a “hourglass” body type, guiding attention to the slim waist and the feminine curves.
This is what the right tango outfit does best: guide attention where it matters the most.
5 reasons to choose nude shoes, a timeless classic
The perfect tango outfit cannot be complete without the right shoes.
In social networks, one of the recurring questions I get is about what shoes to wear, what color to choose, what is the best choice for such-and-such an event. My answer is almost always the same:
When in doubt, use the classic NUDE.-Viviana Laguzzi
So when we refer to nude shoes, they are those that are almost indistinguishable from your legs, achieving an effect of long endless legs.
Every tango dancer or amateur should have a pair of Nude shoes.
Let’s see the 5 reasons a nude shoe is ideal to complete your look.
Reason 1: Nowadays, the variety of colors to use in your outfit when dancing has been widely extended and the nude color easily combines with any of them.
Reason 2: Nude shoes greatly stylize the legs and give an infinite touch to the movements.
Reason 3: You are able to use during the day or night, in summer or winter.
Reason 4: Nude shoes allow you to give more prominence to your chosen outfit for your performance or dance night out.
Reason 5: They are compatible with any type of skin color from the lightest to the darkest and within the range of nude tones you will always find the one that suits you best.
The nude tone is the perfect solution when in doubt, and will help you have endless and more stylized legs.
