dress code

I’ve acquired a few new dancewear items recently, and thought it might be fun to share them with you here, in a new little series featuring my favorites.  First up, the most flattering leg warmers I have ever had the pleasure of wearing, the Full-Leg Light, by Rubiawear.  Crafted by the beautiful Boston Ballet principal, Ashley Ellis, it’s safe to say these paper thin pipes have quickly become my favorite leg warmers (I’ve worn them nearly every day since they arrived on my doorstep- which also happened quite quickly, I might add).  These warmups couldn’t be farther from the bulky, saggy, wool tubes currently burdening your lower half.  On the contrary, these striped beauties are as light as air, hugging the thigh and knees like a soft pair of tights before flaring a bit around the calf for a relaxed fit at the ankle.  This streamlined look seems to be the defining feature of the entire Rubiawear collection, and for that I’d like to extend a ding ding ding JACKPOT to Ms. Ellis;  This unique fit has been missing from the dance world for far too long, and my closet (and previously chilly legs) are seriously appreciative.

Peruse more styles and fabrics here.
