Wedding season has begun and so has dress shopping. Weddings are my favorite event not only because we get to celebrate love, but also because we get to play dress up and shop for days or even weeks for the right gown. Here are some tips that will save you time and help you make the right decision so that you can look fabulous when attending a wedding.
1- Choose the right color
Color is key so make sure you know what color you are looking for in order to filter your search. The color of the dress can vary based on the season and also ones skin tone. You want to try and avoid flashy colors in the winter and solid colors in the summer. You will know the color matches your skin tone when it doesn’t make you look too pale or too dark; instead, the right color will make you glow no matter what the dress looks like.
2- Look for the best fit for you
The fit can change how a dress looks completely. Wearing a dress smaller or bigger than your actual size will make it look cheap and not sexy. The right dress will fit you perfectly, so avoid all baggy and tight fits. Body shape is important and knowing what fit is best for you can really bring out your beauty no matter your body shape or size.
3- Details are everything
Details of the dress usually determine whether or not I buy a particular dress. Some details can ruin the dress and some can enhance it. Remember that less is more; too many designs, fabrics or embellishments can be a huge fashion faux pas. If you want to alter a dress or customize it, keep in mind that you should limit the details and avoid crowding the dress with anything extra that may take away from its actual design.
4- Avoid the deja-vu
Who wants to wear something they’ve seen hundreds of times, right? Sticking to something original isn’t wrong, but if you want to stand out and look your best, attempt something new. Also try to wear a dress that YOU haven’t worn before. There are thousands of styles out there so don’t limit yourself to what you’ve seen and what you’ve always known. I personally chose something I’ve never seen on anyone and I was so happy with my choice.
Choosing a dress when attending a wedding can be daunting and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. My personal tips that I’ve shared can help you make a great choice and believe me you will be happy that you did. There are many factors that go in to choosing the right dress and these 4 tips can help you get there. I truly hope that you found this information helpful and I know you that you guys will look great out there.
