The definition of cocktail dresses has changed over the years. They are not restricted to full skirted gowns anymore worn only on formal occasions or formal social parties.
The contemporary cocktail dress is innovatively designed that endows the modern woman with ample of choices. New cuts, fabrics, designs are ruling the roost, thereby enhancing the silhouette of today’s woman in the best possible way.
Shopping for a cocktail dress can be real fun especially when your girlfriends are there to accompany you.
Trying dresses back to back and choosing the best in the lot is the usual process most of us go through. But there are times when we are absolutely clueless and don’t have an iota of clue on what to wear. There are times when we have to grapple with indecisiveness invading our minds and there are also times when we don’t really have the time to go and shop and we land up wearing something that is languishing in our closet since years.
With an array of options available in markets, malls, designer boutiques and online stores; here are a few patterns that might help you pick the right dress. The objective is to make you visualize that perfect dress for your body and personality and make your shopping experience less time consuming.
* Empire waistlines are the most appropriate for women with a pear shaped body. It accentuates their bust and makes their hip look slimmer. A floor length bright colored gown with an empire waist and a prettily embellished off shoulder neckline would bring out the best in you.
* Women with an hourglass figure would like to flaunt those curves and emphasize more on their curvaceous waist. They should go for a mermaid or a trumpet cut dress. A trumpet cut is tightly fitted from the chest to the knee and flares out at the hem, thereby accentuating your figure. A ravishing black floor length halter dress with a trumpet cut would be apt if you have something grand coming up your way.
* Women with an athletic body type have the liberty to experiment as much as they can. The only rule is to make the most of the shape they have been gifted with by accentuating in the best possible way. They generally have a lean torso and toned legs. Strapless, off shoulders and new Grecian styles are something they shouldn’t be afraid of trying.
* Women with an inverted triangle body generally have narrow hips, legs and an average or good bust line. V and scoop neck line dresses will do absolute justice to your body type. A deep v halter neck lined knee length dress with a ruffled hemline would be worth a try.
A little sequin and bead work on your dress would be an icing on the cake and you will be all set to sashay in the most awaited cocktail party with style.
