When you have an occasion coming up that requires a formal dress code, consider hiring your dress for the night. When you use the hire option you are able to take advantage of hiring a really special dress without the cost factor usually attached to hire end range dresses. Designer labels can cost a small fortune, but you can wear one for your night and make the event really special.
The next step on hiring your dress is to make sure you choose one that will enhance your positive features and suit your body shape. The dress should ultimately flatter your figure. Below are some tips on body types and selecting the right type of dress.
This shape should be shown off and not hidden below a long gown that will tend to overwhelm your smaller frame. Avoid billowy dresses and rather choose a shorter and simpler option.
Choose a dress that creates an illusion that results in a curvy figure, dresses that are cinched in at the waist or feature a belt in the waistline are advisable. Alternatively pick a dress that features two different colors on the bottom and the top. This visually can break up your torso for a curvier looking shape.
This shape accommodates nearly any style and you will look fantastic. However, avoid dresses that are empire styled as this would hide your beautiful waistline.
Empire dresses are highly advisable for this body type, choose a dress with an interesting or detailed bust area. The rest of dress should flare out, fabrics that fall gently over the body will stop the material from clinging to areas you may want to hide. When you have great legs show them off in a shorter version of this style.
For this type of shape it is best to highlight your upper part, in order to balance off your lower heavier part. Choose dresses with an a-line skirt or flared out and a fitted bust area. The top part of the dress should feature lace, crystals or beads that will draw more attention to your shoulder and neck areas.
The best piece of advice is to choose any style you like but not to choose dresses that feature too much fabric and are puffed out. Choose a dress that moves easily with you when you walk. Long flowing gowns that touch the floor are a fantastic choice to jazz up any occasion.
Once you have chosen a style that suits your body shape the next step would be to select a color that compliments your skin tone and hair and eye color. Pastel tones are great for fair skin and light hair. While warmer colors suit darker toned skin and dark hair.
Be sure to reserve your dress in advance to ensure you receive the dress well before the day of your event. Choose simple yet dazzling accessories to finish off your look.
