How To Choose Your Perfect Dress

In today’s blog, we’ll be covering how to choose the perfect dress for your birthday party or your daughter’s quinceanera. Picking the right dress will provide yourself or your soon-to-be 15 year old daughter with the allure you want on your special day. If it’s your own birthday party, then you’ll want to make sure you look good in whatever you wear. A birthday party of a quinceanera will mark your entry into another year. A quinceanera marks a young woman’s entry into adulthood, while a birthday party celebrates you getting one year older. No matter what year you may be turning, you’ll want to look good. Here are some tips to find the perfect dress:

Decide Your Budget

Like most big events, you’ll want to figure out your budget before you commit to anything. By deciding on how much you’d like to spend for the dress, you can figure out the other stuff as well. As a parent, you want to provide the best for your child; however, you also don’t want to spend too much money on the dress unless she wears it more than once. If you’re the one purchasing the dress, then you’ll want to make sure it’s within a reasonable budget. On the other hand, you may want to go all out for the dress as well because it’s your special day. Whatever you decide for your budget, it’s vital that you stay within your means.

Figure Out Your Body Type

Another tip to find the best dress is to figure out your body type. Obviously, you know if you’re tall or short, but what other attributes about your body are there? Are you curvier on top than you are on the bottom? Do you have broad shoulders and a voluptuous lower half? Figuring out your body type will help you feel comfortable in the dress as well as other types of clothing.

Everyone has a different body type, but it’s figuring out how to feel great in your clothes that complement your body that’s key. If you’re on the taller side, you’ll want to show off your defined waistline with some accessory that breaks up your frame. If you’re on the shorter side, you’ll want a shorter dress that will make you look taller. If you have problem areas of your body that you’d like to downplay, then there are many different dresses that can make you feel confident.

Pick The Right Tones For Your Skin

Choosing the right color for your skin tone is just as important as choosing a dress that’s best for your body type. If you’re more fair, then you’ll want to try more jeweled tones to play off of your lighter tones and to make you stand out instead of look washed out. If you have more of a medium skin tone, then gold, copper, and metallic silver may look the best option. If you have dark skin, then lighter tones of yellow, blue, or red, can be the best option to really make your skin glow. Whatever your skin color may be, there’s a beautiful dress out there for you.

The Fit: Go With How You Feel, Not The Size

Seeing the size of a dress can be a rude awkward. If you normally wear a size 10 and the dress that looks beautiful on you is a 12, then go with the 12. While you may want to hold onto the idea that you’re a certain size, clothes aren’t always consistent. Some brands may run smaller than others. A few will say one-size-fits-all when that’s not the case and a couple will actually fit to your size, but it can vary. It’s important that when you purchase a dress that you want to look good, that it fits well and that doesn’t mean focusing on the size. If that size 12 dress fantastic on you, then stick with it instead of going with a 10.

Choose The Accessories

Picking the accessories can be just as important as the dress. You’ll want to pick accessories that complement the dress. These accessories can be anything from long necklaces to dangling earrings and chunky bracelets. Whatever you feel comfortable in, you should choose to wear with your dress. Additionally, you’ll want to pick shoes that will complement the dress and that you’ll feel comfortable in. If flats are your go-to, then wear them, but if you’d like to dress up a bit there are a wide range of heels that are comfortable and easy to dance in.
