What clothing is worn during the flamenco?

Female flamenco dancers traditionally wear ankle-length dresses or skirts with ruffles or frills. The Western image of a flamenco dancer is actually wearing a Sevillanas dress, which is worn at the time of the annual Seville feria.

Modern flamenco dancers are more likely to wear smooth jersey dresses to show off the body line. A common costume choice for flamenco students is a long ruffled skirt plus a shawl worn as a top.

Men can wear a suit, or pants and a shirt. In nuevo flamenco, you'll often see men bare-chested, too.
