No matter what the source of the celebration, dressing for a party takes plenty of thought and preparation. Here are a few tips to help you get it right:
Know your style
Party dresses tend to be a little shorter in length to than your every day office attire. From long sleeved, backless numbers to strapless shifts, there are a huge number of cuts to choose from. Focusing on just the one style of a party dress will certainly help you narrow down your options so know what is right for you.
The party season is the one time of year we get to have a little fun with our outfits. Try encompassing a few daring patterns and bold colours as opposed to sticking to the standard black shift.
Regardless of how expensive the dress is and whom it is made by, this doesn’t mean it’s the dress for you. Choose something you feel one million dollars in as opposed to something that costs a million dollars!
Try picking a style that tells the world a little about you as a person. For example, if you have an extremely bubbly character you may wish to opt for an outfit comprised of loud patterns and shades. If you are shy at heart, opting for pastel hues will create a more sophisticated style.
If your dress is bold, keep the accessories to a minimum – too much bling will create an overly busy look. Try to focus on one main accessory, such as a statement necklace or an embellished cuff. Wearing both loud earrings and a loud necklace will have the effect of throwing your dress off centre.
Tailor your outfit to the occasion
Certain events, such as a gallery opening or a top-notch dinner, require that you dress in a timeless manner. In this scenario, a black cocktail dress is the key. If you wish to add a little colour to your outfit, add a brighter clutch or a statement pair of shoes. For an extremely formal affair, choose a dress that ends below the knees.
