“You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination.”
― Roman Payne
For any formal event such as a black tie event, prom, homecoming wearing evening gowns is a perfect choice for women. But formal events don’t come that often, which can make choosing the right evening gown a difficult task. This is especially true if you are not a serious follower of celebrity culture. If you have received a short description of the dress code to be followed at the event then things can be much simpler but if no then here are few simple tips that you need to follow when going for gown shopping.
1) Colour: The most important issue is to carefully select the colour of the evening gown. Talking about the colour, the most preferred choice for such an event is either black or white, if you want to be on a safe side. But today, there is a wide range of colours that can be selected in even neutral colours like blue, green and even purple.
2) Size and Fitment: Formal or evening gowns are available in a wide variety ranging from zero sizes to thirty-two. So, women of all sizes can easily find an evening gown that will fit them well. If you do not have any budget then you should go for a designer gown. This is for the reason that with a designer gown you will be guided as to what kind of gown will suit your body and you will be given a fit that accentuates your positive features. If you are shopping for evening gown online then it is best that you buy it way ahead of the event as this will give you sufficient time to get alterations. For a brick and mortar store, go at a timing when there are less number of clients, to get an undivided attention of the sales person of the shop.
3) Body Shape: Also, select a gown style that is apt for your body shape. For instance, if you are top heavy do not wear a gown that is high neck instead go V-neck.
4) Right Accessories: You can also use online services to get feedback from the online store executives in case you are confused regarding any gown. Like with any event, when going for formal events, selecting the right accessories will make or break your look. You should go for jewellery pieces that will not overpower each other. Always, let one piece take the centre stage. For bags, go for something that is small, elegant and not flashy. Not just this, you can, not forget about the sandals, a pair of heels is a must. Do not wear shoes that are brand new as this can give you shoe bite, making walking around difficult for you.
Lastly, irrespective of what kind or from where you are getting your gown always trust your instincts. This not just applies to deciding on the gown but or for that matter any clothing. It is you who has to wear the dress, therefore you need to wear something in, which you feel comfortable.
