The other part to finish off the hip hop look is the Bling.
Referred to as bling, bling bling or iced out jewellery, it is big, shiny, and oversized.
Choose from dog tags, large watches, rings, bracelets, chains, pendants, earrings etc.
Large hoop earrings are great for girls. Chains with the $ dollar sign are very popular.
Look in your local jewellery and accessory shops for great bargains.
Create the Hip Hop Look
When putting together a hip hop costume for the stage, use the above basics to create a cool hip hop dance costume. Look for some dance sneakers from brands such as Bloch or Capezio which are great for dancing in and still look cool. Then add lots of silver sequins for the bling look as well as large silver costume jewellery.
Hip hop dancewear is the opposite of all that is jazz (neat, tidy, fitted, neat hair, all wearing the same costume).
Group hip hop dance costumes look best when everyone are wearing different outfits (maybe a central theme such as colour or style). Add different Hairstyles, such as pony tails, hats or wear it all down and straightened.
