The Perfect Dress For Any Occasion Is Easy To Find [Details]
Rucuss staffMarch 1, 2014
Let the invitation, the season, and the hour be your guides.
In fashion, the rules are often meant to be broken, which makes the perfect outfit is even harder to find. Black tie once meant floor-length gowns. Now dresses of all lengths are acceptable.
But whatever style dress it must have a semi-formal or formal cut and fabric. Unfortunately, different occasions call for different dress codes. Victoria’s Dress has the perfect dresses for every occasion.
The lines are much grayer for grand affairs. It’s okay to wear cocktail-length to a black-tie wedding. It’s all about being body-appropriate. If you’re shorter, a long dress is just drowning.
For pear-shaped women with full hips and thighs, the dress should shouldn’t be shorter than an inch or two above the knee. Select a dress with an A-line skirt but not something too full. A short, super fuller dress will look like a tu-tu. To draw the attention away from your lower body, select a dress with a plunging V-neck, halter top or embellished neckline.
If you are apple-shaped with a thick middle, you need to elongate the appearance of your torso and draw the attention away from your waist. Select a dress with an empire or drop waist to re-define your waist line. Avoid thick belts cinched around your midsection and instead choose a chain or sash belt slung low on your hips.
If you have heavy arms, sleeveless and cap sleeve dresses aren’t for you. Instead, select billowy, bell sleeves that are 3/4 or even full-length to hide flabby arms.
Everyone has figure flaws, but it doesn’t mean you can’t hide them. When shopping for a new dress this season, be sure to keep your body type in mind.
