A big part of the joy and especially the presentation of belly dancing is getting dressed up in beautiful costumes that accentuate your every move.

Add in harem pants, a veil, scarves, and head dress for maximum fun.

Harem Pants

The belly dancers harem pants sit low on your hips and you have two options with your harem pants. You can wear them under your circle skirt or on their own. If you opt to wear harem pants without a skirt look for an opaque fabric. If you are wearing harem pants as part of your Bollywood dance costume under a skirt you would do well do look for a sheer material. Maybe even layer two circle skirts for added layering.

You can have a sheer caftan and wear it over your bra and cinch the waist with a hip scarf. We prefer the added layered look of the hip scarf over a belt but the choice is a highly personal one.
