Singles, attention please! Struck with the question when will I get married? Maybe you can your mate at your best friend's wedding! Wedding ceremonies are the time when you meet the best men (pun intended). So here's your chance to make hay while the sun shines. If you are the bridesmaid, request the bride to select outfits that will flatter your bodies. If it's a summer wedding, go for light, diaphanous, and floral fabrics. Team them up with plain pumps or simple heels. A dress worn at the wedding has to be subtle and not striking. A soft fabrics accentuate the tenderness and will make you look fabulous.
A little black dress usually suffices the dress code of a cocktail party. But if you want to experiment, there are a lot of varieties you can try. Most of the cocktail dresses are plain and stitched in the most simplest form. While buying cocktail dresses, keep in mind that they complement your figure. With the plain dresses, you can accessorize by adding a touch of jewelry such as pearls, diamonds, gold, and silver.
Parties too count as special occasions. Dresses for night outs range from casual denims, to floral dresses, formal dresses, skirts, and long tunics. If you are attending a costume party, needless to say, you need to dress up as the dress code suggests. For a night out, wear something that you are comfortable in. Skirts get a little difficult once you are two drinks down. If you can wear a skin-showing dress with equal panache, then simply go ahead. Corset dress, off shoulder dress, jacket dresses or a sheath dress, the choice is yours as long as you can carry it with confidence. Wearing a pair of denims with a figure flattering top is the best option. When showers are in question, normal dress will fit the occasion too.
Office parties also demand a fashion statement. Since you are dressing up for an office party, avoid wearing anything suggestive. A revealing dress will just make a wrong statement. Stick to formals or semi-casual clothing for office parties. If you want to avoid dresses and khaki pants, then formal pants with shirts are the best dressing option for office parties.
Dressing up for an occasion is all about wearing what you are comfortable in. A certain dress may make you look fabulous, but if it makes you highly uncomfortable or conscious, it won't allow you to enjoy the party. Thus buy or wear dresses, which suit your body type and not just your whim.
