For what it's worth, here are a few of my all-time favorite skating costumes worn by my all-time favorite figure skaters:
Dorothy Hamill - "Nutcracker" - gorgeous pink/white with white fur at the sleeves.
"Phantom of the Opera - Music of the Night" - dark blue dress - stunning!
1976 Olympic long program - "American Beauty Rose" dress with rhinestone around the v-neck. Simple and lovely.

Michelle Kwan - 1998 US/Olympic long program - very simple, sleeveless blue dress. Stunning and lovely.
Tara Lipinski - 1986 short program dress for "Little Women". Simple brown dress - it was right in character for the music and the movie.
