Sophistication and glamour often go hand in hand with a nice long dress to flatter your body. Whether you are going to a red carpet event or a corporate evening event, putting your best foot forward isn’t just an option but a requirement. Piece of advice, you can never go wrong with a nice long dress that compliments your body type, you only need to settle for something that makes you feel comfortable and look respectable at the same time.
At Molly’s Bridal we will help you choose the best evening dress to compliment your style and body. Let’s look at some vital aspects to consider while choosing a long evening wear.
Consider your height
If you are of short stature, it’s important to balance proportions. Long evening dresses with bare shoulders or plunging necklines visually lengthen your silhouette. Tall individuals may sometime want to downplay their height and this can be achieved by choosing a dress that is darker at the bottom or with horizontal prints create the illusion of a shorter body.
Determine your body shape
In order to creatively flatter your body type, a dress that fits closely at the waist gets the job done pretty well. This guarantees a classic and feminine look on your body. Loose and flowing dresses may not be the right choice for small frames as they create a boyish look. Similarly, large skirts add bulk and weight to larger frames.
Choose your color
The color of a dress often reflects your mood and status. Long black dresses spell out elegance, sophistication and mystery. A long red evening dress draws attention and symbolizes drama and power. Pastel dresses come in handy during warmer months and enhance a feminine look. In case you settle for a pastel dress, remember to settle for something that compliments your skin tone.
Choose the material
Materials determine the feel and formality of a dress. Long chiffon dresses are light and enhance a sheer look that is appropriate for any age. Lace adds a nice vintage appeal to any dress and incorporates modesty to revealing choices.
When choosing the ideal material for an evening dress, the season also counts. Velvet is a luxurious material but only appropriate during cold weather while satin and silk suit almost every type of weather. It is also important to know whether your event is being held outdoors or indoors or indoors to help in choosing the best material combination to keep you feeling sassy and comfortable throughout the evening.
