Strictly Come Dancing 2014: 10 best dancewear
‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is back on our screens this weekend, so get with the programme and gear up for your own performance
It’s around this time of year that everyone starts toe-tapping a little. Strictly is back on screen and, as a nation, we’re getting starry-eyed gazing at the sequins and secretly fancying ourselves as the next dancing champion (or at the very least burning off some of those Bake Off-linked pounds). There are dance classes all over the country, from ballroom to ballet barre to zumba, so there really has never been a better time to limber up and point those toes. But remember dancing is also about the performance - so lose the baggy sweatpants and look the part.

While legwarmers and luxe accessories are half the fun of a dance class, it all comes down to essentials. A great pair of leggings, like H&M’s good value ones, and a sturdy sports bra (see Bodyism’s stylish range) should be all you need to see you through any style of dance class. And sequins, of course, are strictly optional.
