one should miss an event because they don't have a vintage wardrobe.
It is always acceptable to come in the best approximation of period dress that you can manage. (Or in modern attire if you don't want to dress up.) The whole object of dressing up is to give dancers the general feel of being present in a period ballroom. Therefore, fine details of dress are less important than being dressed in something that gives an overall impression of the period style.
Here we offer suggestions for what to wear to our various vintage dance events. (Also see our suggestions for dance shoes.)
