Are you as ready as we are to kick off the next season? We know this time often begins with camp - a whole chunk of time dedicated to team bonding and bringing everyone together! It's the first time you get to show off your team to the world, so style and passion are a must! And camp tops have become an essential for sporting team spirit. So, how can you get the most out of your campwear investment, especially when budgets are always tight? Here are a few tips that prove a little extra planning and time could potentially save yourself some money and stress later! Read on to see how to make the most out of your dance camp apparel:

1. Buy a quality top meant to last.
We know splurging an extra $10 now sounds like a lot, but in the end it could potentially save you from buying another outfit later, and spending even more! If you buy quality that can be worn again and again, it’ll be worth the investment. And that’s not always something you can get from a cheap top who’s glitter comes off in the wash!

2. Design a stunning style that could work for more than one performance.
Think of something that is versatile and spectacular enough not just for camp, but also fall performance, game day, or marking! A white screen printed t-shirt might loose it luster after camp, but something like a halter style with sequin lettering might have enough sparkle and class to work for fall game day performances!
3. Coordinate your top with the rest of your team apparel.
The easiest way to do this? Pick something in your school colors, which will easily translate to game day. If your camp top is a girly pink theme that clashes with your warm-ups, odds are it won’t get used again. But if you purchase all of your team apparel to work together, it’ll be easy to mix and match styles while maintaining a cohesive team look!
Now you're ready to kick off your season in style - and hopefully save a few bucks in the process!
