It Is Not Necessary to Buy Figure Skating Clothing Immediately:
Once you want to "dress the part of a figure skater," going to Target or Walmart or a supplier of dance clothes is a good way to find something appropriate.
At first, a leotard with a skirt and dance tights will do just fine for girls and for boys, athletic pants, a shirt, thin socks, and a jacket or sweater are all that is needed.
There Are Several Options and Ways to Find Figure Skating Clothes:
Many skating dresses can be found on EBAY. Also, some ice rinks have a shop that sells new skating dresses and figure skating outfits on consignment.
Find a Seamstress Who Makes Skating Clothing:
Sometimes there is a seamstress that makes skating clothes that everyone has found by word of mouth. Ask a skater that is wearing a cute outfit about where he or she found that skating dress; you may be given a name of a good store or a seamstress that way.
The Beige Colored Figure Skating Tights Can Be Hard to Find:
Walmart does sell beige dance tights, but those tights are not always strong enough to endure the hard wear they will get by a figure skater, so purchasing actual figure skating tights online is a better route if you can't obtain them locally.
Where to Find Boys' Skating Clothes:
Boys' skating clothes are difficult to find. There are manufacturers of boys' figure skating pants, so type in "boys or mens skating pants" in a Google search, and online suppliers should appear.
