The next type on our historical overview is Dancer. This style is unique in the series in that, even though it does have a clear beginning in the dancers who performed for royalty during the Renaissance, it is a style that has continued to evolve over time due to the continuation of the art. Another difference is that the whole spectrum from the most simple to the most detailed “Dancer” looks can be historically accurate (as opposed to the simpler variations being modern inventions as seen with the previous types). Wrap sweaters, the casual use of tulle, ballet influenced footwear, and leggings are some examples of the looks we’ve gained from this archetype. On each board, I’ve included both formal and casual examples to show how flexible and wearable each style can be, but “The Dancer” has one of the widest varieties due to both the practice wear and performance wear of dancers influencing mainstream fashion.
