You’re never fully dressed for a swing dance without a smile and a fantastic outfit. Putting together such an ensemble may require some effort, much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle – I hope this blog can provide you with some of the missing pieces. My goal is to provide swing dancers with resources for swing dance clothing and accessories, new and old, and other items that swing dancers may find useful. I am already shopping for items to wear to swing dances and outfits for gigs with the Mint Julep Jazz Band, and am always happy to share my finds. If you are reading this blog, you can thank the dancers at (the now defunct) Hot Club of Durham in Durham, North Carolina for conceptualizing and encouraging me to write this blog.
It should be noted that both shopping and Lindy Hop are addictive.
