This season, Wakaba Higuchi’s short program dress has been one of my favorite costumes. Designed by Satomi Ito, Wakaba’s bold dress has a perfect color combination. This ombre dress has some touches of orange, pink, purple, white, blue, and black, yet the combination is impeccably balanced. The mesh in the neck line matches Wakaba’s skin color perfectly, which is a subtle detail that can make or break a figure skater’s whole outfit. The black and white beaded lines, along with the blue, pink, and purple rhinestones give a touch of brightness to the dress complementing the costume. The skirt has a beautiful movement while Higuchi glides through the ice. Overall, the outfit is fun without losing elegance, and it fits the program’s upbeat tempo wonderfully.
