In the 40-some years I've been a NYCB regular, there have been a few adaptations to the costumes. The video that Quiggin posted (post #6) shows them at their worst, I think. The guys' costumes are half a step above practice clothes, while the tutus are more formal. Mismatch between the sexes. Fortunately, the men's tunics gained a satiny finish and some subtle sparkle. The spats came and went . At one point, the women's bodices were a lovely brocade over a plain, flattish tutu. For some reason, they didn't last long. A shame.

(the jewelry section of this website was fun to explore, makes you wonder which tiaras will be worn this summer for the Queen's Jubilee - maybe they will pull some of the rarely worn ones from the vault for the newer royal ladies to wear?)
