Tricks to Choosing the Best Dress for You
If you are willing to forego the traditional prom style and feel that an unusual dress is for you, then keep these key factors in mind to ensure you look and feel your best.
- Make sure the dress suits your body type. The most universally flattering styles are A-line cuts and empire waists. Both skim the body and lend themselves to a long lean line. Strapless gowns or gowns with spaghetti straps are also very flattering to the upper body and convey a look of delicacy.
- Choose the right color. You can wear almost any style of dress if it's the right color. This has a lot to do with your skin's undertone. Decide if you have a cool, warm, or neutral undertones, and then plan accordingly. This is also a key factor in choosing the appropriate makeup to compliment your look.
- Don't forget your accessories. Accessories can make or break a look. Pay special attention to bags, shoes, and where applicable, shoulder wraps.
- Look confident. This is the most important factor to help you look your best. Standing tall, besides making you appear instantly slimmer, also conveys a high level of confidence. Try not to hunch your shoulders. Good posture says so much about you, namely that you are confident and a force to be reckoned with. Confidence is the best thing to wear, and it's always in style.
