Dresses for the Party Seasonposted on 18 November 2010 | posted in Handbag and fashion Articles
It's time to make your wardrobe plans for the coming party season. Start shopping for those glamorous dresses and accessories that will help you to make your grand entrance and be noticed for all the right reasons.
This is a quick guide to finding the correct shape dress to flatter your figure shape, so that you feel confident when you glam up and let your hair down.
Boyish figures can achieve a soft feminine look by choosing a dress with a ruffle hem or a loose fitting shift dress with long, floaty chiffon sleeves. Both styles will give a straight up and down shape a girly, flirty look.
Pear shaped figures suit empire line dresses best. Choose a gorgeous maxi length dress, or a loose fitting tunic dress with long sleeves that will balance out the figure. Padded or detailed shoulders will help to draw the eye outwards at the top half of the body. Wider hips should be skimmed with loose chiffon fabric to flatter the curves.
Those of you who are lucky enough to be petite can wear almost any dress, but keep pattered maxi dresses to small shapes as large patterns will make you look shorter.
If you have a fuller figure, be proud and show off those curves. Choose a dress that will emphasize your slimmest parts such as just under the bust or the waistline, keep any pattern simple and preferably one colour. This seasons colors of purples and camels are very flattering to the fuller figure.
Once you have chosen your dress, don't forget the all important evening bag to hold your essentials. A party girl needs her lipstick, to keep a perfect pout.
Silver evening bags are always a popular choice, but be daring and have fun with a red clutch bag and accessories. Above all, enjoy!
