When it comes to dressing up, ladies have the more fun. There are far too many choices to choose from and very easy access, that sometimes it becomes stressful rather than enjoyable when shopping for it. One of the hardest types of clothing to look for is the evening dresses.

In every girl’s life, there will always be an occasion that will require evening dresses. Truthfully, evening dresses nowadays can be bought easily; but getting the perfect one is a difficult task…for a girl, at least. Naturally, women have too much to think about when choosing evening dresses for a specific event. So before rushing into purchasing the first ball gown that is displayed at the window of the store, here are some tips to consider in choosing the perfect outfit for an evening occasion.

Where Are You Going?

Consider the event that you are about to attend to. Does it have a theme? Would there be a color code for the guests (in some occasions, the hosts request not to be in black or white)? Is it a strictly formal event? Know the important details, it should help in narrowing down the choices of evening dresses.

How Well Do You Know Your Body?

In choosing the perfect evening dress, it all boils down to how good it will look on you. Admit it, it’s not everyday (or night) you get to hop into evening dresses and enjoy elegant affairs. Make sure to get it right, every time. You know you found the picture-perfect dress when you feel confident and comfortable wearing it.

It is vital that you are aware of your measurements: your height, waist, hips and bust. These numbers will be your guide in getting that right fit of the dress you are going to buy.

There are evening dresses that are best suitable for certain body types.

Petite – For these frames, cocktail dresses will look best. Long gowns will just make you look shorter. Show off those legs! Certainly you will be wearing high heels, which will give those instant extra inches you need! If you are opting to get a printed one, look for designs that will give a longer illusion. Vertical stripes are the way to go. Long sleeves may not be a good idea, because it may accentuate the (possibly, and most likely) short arms. V Necks make you look longer as well. Keep it simple as possible, limit the details such as layering fabric, so the wholeness of the dress won’t swallow you.

Rectangular – This type is also known as the athletic or boyish figure. As the word implies, the body looks rectangular and has no shape. Ladies under this category should try on evening dresses that will give the illusion of curves. Cutting the dress in the waist area with a belt can give an hourglass look. Let the shoulders expose themselves to have edges. Color blocking can also help in breaking up the torso, which will give the figure some shape.

Hourglass – There are few words to be mentioned for this body type. Any dress will fit just right, so it is easier to shop! There is also no limit in terms of the design, the length and color. These ladies are very lucky! The dress only needs to highlight the curves and not come off as stocky.

Plus Size – These women are also lucky, if they consider themselves that way too. They can wear anything as well, depending on what body area they want to showcase, or hide. Most of these ladies are concerned about their arms and tummies, so the usual pickings of dress designs are the empire cut and long sleeved gowns. Dark colors make the body look slimmer, so those evening dresses are a go for them too. Some also use shawls for cover ups, or have lace details instead so the dress would conceal the parts you want to lowlight, but would still come off as showing off your body. Try avoiding layers of fabrics and go with the materials that would hug the curves right and will not constrain the body’s movements.

It is not important as the body shape, but skin tone and hair color can also be a consideration in choosing evening dresses. There are evening dresses that may not go well with a strong hair color, so take note of that too. Although it is not necessary, so feel free to experiment!

What’s New In Fashion?

In, fashion, trends come and go. At a specific time, there are clothing designs that are appealing to the eyes of others, and after some time it may appear to them as already old-fashioned (however, that trend will always circle its way back). Evening dresses also experience the cycle. For example, before, ball gown were the rave in formal occasions; petticoats were the bomb. After a couple of years, women have been leaning on to wearing long, body-hugging dresses with satin silk material. The trend became simpler, in which case it would evolve yet again.

Sequins have been a staple part of evening dresses. It makes the gown more elegant and a showstopper. These shiny embellishments are very good under light, especially if you want to be noticed in the venue.

Metallic fabrics also have a way in formal, evening affairs. They take away the chore of having to accessorize so much because the fluid material already acts as a “Look-here” sign. This also goes well under lighting as it gives evening dresses that shiny effect.

One can go with the fad, but somehow it might be scary to go to the affair with a potential twin wearing the same dress. You can think again, and go for a more unique design.

What’s The Rush?

As a girl, shopping should not be a burden! Enjoy! When you know you have the time, take it easy and consider all possible options. Now that shopping can also be done online, you can scan for evening dresses even at night (when the malls are still closed), and then just look for the same design in stores.

Try as many dresses as you can because you might come across the perfect evening dress you are looking for when you least expect it. Take photos, consider the fitting, walk around wearing it. Having more choices is a better dilemma than having nothing to choose from. For sure, it will take more than a day to browse all the evening dresses you can possibly check!

Every lady deserves to look like a queen (or princess!) on these special times. Formal events give women the excuse to exercise the skill of shopping, especially when now they know what they need to look for! Finding the utmost perfect one among many evening dresses out there should not be a problem, because a girl’s way of therapy is retail therapy! Happy shopping, ladies!
