Top Ten Ways To Look Fabulous in that Party Dress
A party is a time for fun, enjoyment, meeting new people and of course, for dressing up and looking fantastic!
However, there are probably millions of people who feel uneasy whenever they are invited to a party. Why? Because they worry about what to wear and they fret about looking good. Well, if you are one of these people, then it is time that you stop making alibis and attend that bash!
Instead of feeling dreadful about an upcoming event, why not try looking at it from a positive point of view? Always remember that a party is the perfect venue to experiment with a new trend or style.
Here is a top ten list on how to wow everyone on the big night.
10. Find a dress that will suit your body type and personality.
This means that you have to wear something that will hide your flaws and flatter your assets. How?
If you are one of those blessed few who have model-like figures, then you can indulge in almost all outfits available.
For small or petite women, avoid wearing a dress with overall prints as it will only make you look thinner. As for shoes, open-toed heels will definitely make your legs look longer.
If you are heavy on the lower body or if you have a pear-shaped figure, try wearing a light-colored top and a darker shade on the bottom. The upper part of the body is accentuated while the lower part remains unnoticed.
If you have an apple-like figure or you are heavy on the top, make sure that you avoid tops with ruffles and details. Instead, you can go for V-necks in a dark shade.
9. Never follow the “latest fashion trend” especially if the outfit is not suited for your body type.
More often than not, fashion trends are designed for those with model-like figures. The reality is that not everyone is endowed with such attributes.
Always take note that being beautiful and fashionable doesn’t always mean that you’re on top of the newest trends; rather, it is knowing what clothes work for you.
8. Pick a dress that fits you.
Pick party attire that fits you perfectly. You can go to a tailor or seamstress and have a gown altered to your size.
7. Pick something comfortable.
Wearing a dress that you feel comfortable in helps exude you confidence and beauty. Comfortable outfits give you an additional flair and grace that you need to make those heads turn.
6. Always dress appropriately for the occasion.
Know what party you are going to. Offices and corporate affairs are not really the place to experiment with plunging necklines or micro mini skirts. Instead, choose an elegant number that will make you look chic and stylish. Dress according to your age, too.
5. Pay attention to your lingerie.
You can also use your undergarments to enhance your party outfit. You can use push-up bras to give your dress some form and a little cleavage.
4. Avoid accessory overkill.
Although accessories can complete a look,
The trick here is to base the accessories on the type of dress that you will be wearing. If you choose a printed number, the accessories should be minimal.
If you opt for a plain black dress, then you can use accessories to do all the hard work. Items such as long pearl necklaces, chokers or bracelets can create detail for your outfit.
3. Do not forget to pay special attention to your shoes.
You can also wear high-heels if you want. In fact, wearing high heels can improve your posture and bearing.
2. Check your hair and make up.
Since you are so engrossed in figuring out what to wear, it is very likely that you will forget to prepare makeup for yourself. Always remember to wear make-up and hair that will flatter your dress.
For a classic black or white dress, wear bright colored lipstick to add detail to your entire get-up.
Hair also plays an important role in your look. Much like your make-up, the hair is also an accessory. Designs like tube and halter tops look even better with your hair tied up as they give emphasis to your beautiful shoulders.
If you are wearing spaghetti-strapped or backless numbers, you can let your hair down and allow people to see that shiny hair.
1. Be well mannered, stay poised and be graceful.
All these tips are aimed to help you make good party outfit choices from now on. The tips are simple and don’t need the help of a stylist. Go on, dress up - it’s your time to shine.
