Going on a first date and getting jittery about looking no less than your best? Is choosing the Prom dress simply not your domain and the very thought of doing so is upsetting you? Have endless dresses in your closet but don’t know which one to wear to a wedding? These are fairly common situations that we all go through at some or the other point of time.
The complexity simply doesn’t end in choosing the apt outfit, but also to carry it off in great style. This is why it is essential that you choose it in accordance to your body type. Without beating around the bush, let me take you straight to certain pointers, which will give you a lowdown on some basic attires that you can wear for different events that will definitely look great on your person and make you a head turner for sure.
THE SHIFT DRESS
Shift dresses are in vogue. At first glance, they might seem like a really long T-Shirt and have no form. The real beauty of the dress lies in the fact that you can add belts and define the waistline as per your body shape and taste. Also, they are something that you can wear both on formal and casual occasions by varying your look with the right shoes, accessories and makeup.
THE EMPIRE CUT DRESS
An empire cut dress consists of a high waistline and a long full skirt below. It works best for those who have pear shape body (read heavy below the waist). You can never go wrong with this cut of you want to hide some extra flab and end up looking absolutely stunning. It also makes people who have a short frame appear taller.
THE A LINE DRESS
A line or a princess cut gown consist of a tight fit bodice and flares from the waist to form a full skirt. The waist is seamless, which allows the wearer to camouflage hips and thighs without any hassle. This is great option for those who think that their thighs are not that impressive and make them look broad below the waist.
Have a well-toned body that you want to flaunt? Then choose a sheath dress, which is slim fitting and consists of minute detailing that perfectly accentuates your curves. Rarely can you make a fashion faux pas with a pretty sleeveless sheath dress if you have a tall and slim frame. Get them in any color you fancy and be ready to paint the town red!
THE BOUFFANT DRESS
The bouffant style is in fashion whether it is in terms of the hairstyle or evening gowns. More often than not, the bouffant is created from light materials such as silk. You can think of it as a version of the ballerina ‘Tutu’ dress. These look really elegant on every body type given the type of neckline you choose. Try not to go for a way too much embellished one, lest you end up looking like a full-on Christmas tree!
THE HIGH-LOW DRESS
If the conventional is not your cup of tea, opt for a high-low gown, which has a long hem at the back and short one in the front. Usually, they are available in gown forms with the back hemline brushing the floor. But you can also get different variations of the same that is, of shorter hemlines. These are great for weddings and it is no surprise that many bridesmaids’ dresses are draw inspiration from the same.
THE BALL GOWN
If you want to look flawless at an event, a ball gown will be your perfect outfit. It is floor length and offers endless scopes for experimentation. If you have a tall figure, then wear it and grace any occasion with élan. If not, wear them with high heels and still grace any occasion to make heads turn for sure!
These are some of the options that will inevitably make you looking pretty.
