Most of us women adore wearing dresses, but sometimes it can be a real nightmare to pick a beautiful dress that will fit us and make us feel comfortable and good about ourselves. Here are some tips and tricks how to choose the perfect dress for every occasion.


  • Pick a dress you feel comfortable in

No matter how beautiful is the dress you want, if you would feel uncomfortable in it, don’t buy it! You should be able to dance in your dress. You don’t want to ruin your entire evening by not being able to move. The dress shouldn’t be too long, the waist should sit on your true waist and what is most important, you should be able to breathe in it properly.


  • The right dress for your body type

Women come in different shapes and sizes. When choosing the right dress for you, you should pick a dress that flatters your body and not the other way around. If you are a pear-shaped woman, your dress should not be too short. If you are a woman with a fuller waist, you should select a dress that will make your torso appear longer and avoid thick belts. On the other hand, if your body type is skinny, you may want to pick an A-line or a bubble dress that will visually give you curves.


  • The little black dress

No matter what fashion style you are into, one of the first rules of fashion for every woman is to have a little black dress in her wardrobe. The right little black dress can be worn in different occasions and it never goes out of style. If you choose it right, you can wear it on a cocktail- night, for a walk around the city or for a business meeting. Of course, proper shoes and accessories are of crucial importance here.


  • Stay true to your personality

Although there are dress codes for every occasion, you should always keep your personal touch on everything you wear. The point of buying a dress is wearing it. But, be careful and always respect the occasion you are coming to, you don’t want to show up to a funeral in a mini skirt.


  • Colour

One of the most important things about buying a dress is choosing the right color. You probably have a favorite color, but that doesn’t mean it is the right color for you. When picking a color of your dress, think about your hair color and a tan complexion. You should pick colors that match your skin’s undertone. If you are a lighter skinned woman, avoid white and nude colors. If your tan is darker, you will look best in brighter and nude colors.  Also, make sure you choose the colors that will bring out the color of your eyes.


  • Budget

If you are buying a dress for one occasion, quality doesn’t have to be the most important thing. But, if you are choosing a dress that you plan on wearing for a longer time, quality should be a huge factor. You don’t want to buy a dress that will fall apart or lose color after just a few wear, no matter how beautiful it is.
