Taking the burlesque look to the street

Most of the time, if you are a burlesque performer, you were going to have a more over the top look to their clothes that is going to be filled with corsets, stockings, and high heel shoes. This is the best way that they could add a little bit of flair to their outfits. A lot of people are going to choose to wear this type of outfit for Halloween but if you want to wear this type of clothing all the time, there are some things that can be done to ensure you do not go over the top.

There are several ways that you can take your burlesque look to the street. The first way to make your street wear look more burlesque is to wear a skirt that has a petticoat or a piece of your wardrobe that has a little bit of lace on it. This is one of the best ways that you are going to feel a little bit burlesque when you are walking down the street.

The second way to make your street wear look more burlesque is to wear some sexy shoes. A lot of the burlesque dancers would wear a pair of sexy shoes. But there was a certain style to these shoes that would make them burlesque. Now these types of shoes are going to have a more retro style to them. This means that you can pick up some high heels with polka dots or mary janes to go with your favorite outfits. You could also add some lace, buckles, bows,

or sequins to your shoes. This is the best way that let everyone know what type of style that you have.

The third way to make your street wear look more burlesque is to make sure that your look is going to stand out along the crowd. As long as your look stands out, then it is going to look burlesque. This is going to be especially true if you are wanting to have the more 50’s pinup type look instead of the Victorian style of burlesque.

These are the top three ways that you are going to be able to make your street wear into a more burlesque style that is going to allow you to show off your personality to everyone that you meet while you are walking down the street in your clothing and shoes.
