The Right Dress for the Right Party

A fabulous pair of shoes and cute clutch would not look good when being paired with a horrible party dress, not matter how cute and fabulous they are. Chances are, when paired with a horrible dress, even that fabulous pair of shoes and cute clutch would look horrible as well. I am writing these down not because I want to give you a horrible mental picture. No, I am not that cruel. I am simply writing this little scenario down to emphasis on the importance of having the right dress to match your fabulous accessories.

When attending a party, unless it is a family gathering or a gathering of only your close friends and relatives, the dress you wear could define the type of first impression that you are going to give off. And boy, we all know the importance of making a great first impression, don't we? The dress you wear is the first thing people would see and because of that, it is important for you to wear the right dress for the right party. There are many options of party dresses to choose from; sleeveless or long sleeves, long or short, satin or tulle, the choices available are limitless. Therefore, as important as matching the right accessories with the dress, it is also important to match the right dress with the right party. Below are a few tips on how to do so.

Be sure of the right dress code required for the party. If the party is formal and the dress code is black tie, please for the love of God, do not arrive wearing a summer party dress. If it's in the summer, this might be forgivable, but if the party is being held in other seasons, then this mistake might just make you look silly and unfashionable. You might look as cute as a button in a summer party dress but honey, it is for all the wrong reasons. Yes, you will have eyes on you, but for the wrong reasons. For a formal black tie party, you might want to arrive wearing a fabulous long evening dress. Donning this type of party dresses would make you stand out as a chic, sophisticated woman. Any man would be glad to have to on their arms. Just like arriving in a summer party dress, donning a fabulous long evening dress would also ensure all eyes are on you and this time honey, it is for all the right reasons.

If the party is a cocktail party, then by all means you have to arrive wearing a cocktail dress. Wearing a long evening dress this time would make you a bit overdressed for the occasion while wearing a summer party dress on the other hand would make you a lot underdressed. The best thing to do is to arrive in a cocktail dress. There are so many cocktail dresses available out there from so many designers. They are also practically available everywhere, from high end boutiques to vintage and pre-loved clothing stores. They are also available in prices that are sure to fit everyone's budget. Another thing, as most cocktail party dresses tend to be only knee-length, ensure that you match them with a cute pair of shoes. After all, you do not want to ruin a nice looking dress with ugly shoes, do you? I don't think so.

Let's not forget the wonderful summer party dresses. If the party is casual and laid back, it is highly appropriate to arrive in a bright summer dress. Arriving in anything could make you bit overdressed of the occasion. Summer party dresses are fabulous and just like the cocktail dress, they are also available almost everywhere these days. They are also available all year round, not just in the summer. With prices as low as 20 dollars per dress, they are certainly affordable. Summer party dresses also tend to be short. Again, do not forget the shoes.

There you have it, some tips on matching the right dress for the right party. It is not hard to look fabulous for a party. And who knows, arriving in the right dress for the right party might get you lucky for after all, parties are one of the best places to meet new people. And who know, your dress could catch the eyes of Mr. Right. Have fun!
