Sometimes Irish dance pops up in the least expected places! Irish dance trends tend to be influenced by popular culture, so you never know when a real world fashion trend will turn into an Irish dance fashion trend.
Take, for example, this dress sported by Cheryl Cole! It would be perfect for an Irish dance dress with a little embroidery and higher collar! An updated three panel, anyone? I’m not sure if its the dancer in me, but I absolutely love this dress.
Here’s an Irish dance version of it! Because the dress is so bold already, some simple knotwork and stoning are all it needs to be perfect for the stage. I was actually undecided on the stoning on the bottom. Which version do you prefer?
And without bling:
Elle Macpherson rocked a similiar one recently as well. I hope this catches on with the mainstream fashion world! I’d be in heaven!
What do you think? Do you think this style will catch on in the Irish dance world? Would you wear a dress like this in the real world?
Stay Fashionable, Feisers!
