Get The Look: Gloves

A fundamental part of any burlesque clothing wardrobe is a pair of stylish gloves. Often the first part of the burlesque performer’s outfit to be removed and easily swung, flung, twirled and even stuffed into the mouth of an exotic burlesque dancer. The choice of fabric and style is huge and the slow peel of a luxurious velvet, satin or leather glove gives a riveting hint to the audience as to what is to follow. Exposing the wrist itself is perceived as being suggestive in nature and any outfit, burlesque or otherwise, is instantly slapped with a big splodge of sophistication, allure and 1940’s style with the addition of a pair of stylish gloves.

Take inspiration from the celebrities when it comes to choosing a pair of burlesque gloves and remember they can be easily customised with an assortment of faux gem stones, rhinestones or crystals (and the trusty glue gun!)
