How to choose your evening dress?

If you have decided to go to a party and you don't yet know what to wear, this article is for you.

Together we will see the different steps to follow to choose the ideal dress. So, without further ado, let’s go!

Adapt your style to the evening

It all starts with finding the right style. In fact, there are so many evening dresses on the market that it can be difficult to decide what suits you best. Try to consider the theme and mood of the evening, then choose the style that fits it best.

A long, elegant dress might be ideal for prom, while a short dress with prints is more appropriate for a casual evening out.

Choose the right material

Once you know what style of dress you're looking for, it's time to choose the right fabric.

Keep in mind that some materials are more suited to certain styles than others. For example, satin and silk are good choices for long dresses for a prom, but can also be too classic for a casual evening. In this case, you might prefer a lighter fabric like cotton or chiffon.

Try as many subjects as possible to find the one that suits you best!

Which dress for which body type?

Your body shape is very important when choosing your evening dress.

Determine the type of shape that will flatter your figure: sheath, empire or pleated dresses are all options to consider. For A-line shapes, pencil and faux-fitted dresses are a great option to refine the waist. H-shaped silhouettes work best with flared dresses and voluminous skirts to soften their straight lines.

Finally, O-shaped figures can opt for bodycon dresses or sheath dresses to emphasize their waist.

What colors for what type of evening?

Once you've found the right fabric, it's time to choose a color that will perfectly match the style and mood of the evening. Classic colors like red or black are always a good option for more formal events. But if you're going to a more casual party, opt for cheerful, shimmering colors like apple green or royal blue.

Your skin tone and makeup can influence this decision because some colors do not suit all skin tones. Pastel tones are a great option for formal events while brighter colors are more suited to casual evenings.

And don't forget: a colorful accessory is always welcome to add a little personal touch to your look.

Take your measurements

Now that you have found the ideal dress, all you have to do is take your measurements and order.

Take the necessary measurements – chest, waist and hips – and make sure they correspond precisely to those indicated on the size chart. You should also take into consideration that some materials are more stretchy than others.

If you are still hesitant, do not hesitate to seek advice from a professional seller who can help you find the perfect dress.

The cut of the dress

The cut of the dress is essential: you need to make sure that it is the right height and does not fall, but also that it does not tighten too much. Also make sure you wear the right underwear that will give you a breathtaking figure!

Finally, consider additional details like the type of closure or sleeves you choose. If possible, try on your dress before purchasing to make sure it fits perfectly and is comfortable to wear.

Define your budget

When choosing an evening dress, your budget is an important factor to consider.

Dresses can be very expensive and it is not always easy to find the right compromise between style and price. Luckily, there are stores offering affordable dresses that look just as good as the more expensive ones!

It is also possible to rent a dress for the evening if you do not want to invest too much money. You can also check online shopping sites or second-hand stores to find the perfect dress at a discounted price.
