The modern world has become far more aware of the costumes for ballroom dancing with each new season of that popular dance reality television show. From what I can find though, there are no hard and fast rules for proper costume for each dance. Costumes should harmonize well with the music and the dance being performed and as long as they don't interfere with or restrict the movements of the dance, it's really up to the dancers themselves to define their costumes.

|Dark and seductive tango dress|
|This latin costume is on sale, can you believe it?|
|A typical ballroom practice shoe|
|A typical ballroom competition shoe|
|My personal favorite, typical swing dance shoes|
