Having Trouble Selecting A Party Dress? Worry No More

For many women, choosing what to buy (or even wear to a party) can be no less than making a decision between life and death. Well, most of them would rather be seen dead instead of looking like a total fashion disaster straight out of China by wearing something that just quite doesn’t fit them right! And the hardest decision to make obviously is choosing the right dress. Well, worry no more because I’ve got just the guide for you. Follow these simple tips in case you’re buying a dress online or choosing one from your wardrobe to wear to a special occasion. Trust me, you’ll never go wrong.

The dress code or the occasion

No there a plethora of online clothing boutiques that sell everything from pretty and cute dresses, to body cons to full length gowns. However, the first and foremost thing to take into consideration when choosing the right party dress is the occasion and the dress code (if there is any that is). If it’s a day time wedding that you’re attending, then you’d want to pick something that’s light in color and something that’s a bit longer than the normal to exude grace. If it’s a first date, then you’d want to slip into something that’s vibrant, just above the knee, and borderline seductive to avoid coming off as too desperate. And in case there’s a dress code, then that pretty much makes your work a lot easier by narrowing down your options for you.

Pick a color that complements your skin

If there’s a dress code, you pretty much aren’t left with much of a choice, otherwise always pick something that complements your skin tone to avoid looking like a complete fashion disaster. What you wear on your body will eventually determine how you do your makeup and choosing a color that doesn’t match your skin tone will not only make you look weird, but will also make doing your makeup even more difficult. If you’re overwhelmed with confusion, start off by determining your skin tone; is your complexion warm or cool? Once you know that, picking a color for a party dress becomes a lot simpler. As a general rule, warm complexions work best with a number of earthy tones including shades of yellow, whereas cool complexions work best with colors ranging from green to purple in the spectrum. There are always exceptions, but never mistake that for overconfidence.

Know your body type

Women come in all shapes and sizes. However, they can all be categorized in no more than five basic categories; an apple a pear, an inverted triangle, a rectangle, and lastly (and probably the most envied), an hourglass! In fact, women will do just about anything to get the perfect hourglass shape. Anyway, knowing your body type will help you select a party dress that actually complements your body shape and accentuate your body’s best feature making you look even more gorgeous. For instance, if you’re a pear, your hips are wider than your shoulders and you’d want to balance your body’s proportions with dresses that enhance your upper body. Likewise, hourglass figures work best with styles that accentuate their best feature – the waistline; dresses with high waistlines or A-line cuts work best for them. Do you know what your body type is? More importantly, do you know how to dress according to your body type?


When it comes to making final decisions, versatility plays in as a major factor as well; you aren’t going to buy a new dress for every upcoming occasion, are you? Hence you’d want to buy a party dress that’s not only affordable as per your budget, buy one that can also be worn later on to another occasion. For instance, a black dress works for everything including and between a corporate board meeting and a wake ceremony. On the other hand, something in scarlet isn’t going to go far without people noticing it and calling out Valentine’s Day. Having said that, there are of course occasions when you don’t really have much of a choice and have to spend a couple of extra bucks for somethings that is less staple and more unique.
