Formal Dress Tips For Your Special Occasion
If you’re having panic attacks at the thought of choosing formalwear for this season’s hottest occasion, you will be delighted to know that the designers are offering you so many fabulous options this season!
Fall & Winter 2009/2010 sees blacks and browns making their catwalk comeback, which is great for those of us requiring radical slimming without the dieting! Sleek up-dos, big jewelry, and leather outerwear are the favored accessories of the fashionistas, so be sure to keep these factors in mind as you choose your outfit.
Here are some excellent fashion tips to help you make an outstanding impression on your big occasion:
Belted Waists – The terrific taper is all the rage for the Fall/Winter 2009. You simply can’t go wrong with this dress style, and it is very forgiving for those of us trying to disguise a porky midsection. Simple cuts are also the big fashion frontrunners, so add a brightly colored belt to your dark dress and infuse spice into your special occasion.
Tilts and Curves – Going to a Christmas party sporting a one-shoulder or off-the-shoulder party dress can be nerve-wracking. However, if you do manage to drum up the confidence to do so, you will make a beautiful impression. Tilts and curves heavily emphasize femininity and elegance, and the accompanying darker colors are much more forgiving of wider hips, thighs, and butts.
Little Black Dresses – It’s little, it’s black, and it’s one of the trendiest party dresses this season. If you have a snazzy little black number lurking at the back of your closet, now is the time to bring it out of hiding. Whether it is short, long, or mid-length, add some sparkly shoes and you’ll be ready to party!
Super-Short Equals Super-Hot – If you’re lucky enough to have legs that go on for miles, or you simply can’t resist the urge to see your boss in a lather, go super-short with your formalwear. Sequins are also making a comeback this season, but don’t add too many, or you’ll end up going from glitzy to gaudy in almost no time at all.
Super-Long And Trendy – Knobby knees are at their very best underneath a super-long maxi dress. Fortunately, the maxi is making its return to the party scene for Winter 2009, and it’s as hot and chic as ever. Maxis look their best on a longer, leaner frame, but choose the right cut and fierce women of any height can own this beauty.
Mixed-Colors – When you’re completely sick of donning black for every formal party occasion, it’s time to change styles. Go for a two-color dress, sleek sumptuous materials, and a belted waist to divide your colors. Bolder colors work better here; the fashionista’s favorites include dark green, blue, red, and purple.
Even the words “formal occasion” strike fear into the hearts of those of us with a penchant for fleece hoodies and jeans. However, it’s somewhat reassuring that the fashion designers are coming up with more and more comfortable colors and options this winter. Embrace the one-shoulder sensations, silky fabrics, simple cuts and maxi party dresses, and you’ll be completely set for any special occasion this year!
