Type of Event
Now that you know what your body type is, now we are going to identify what type of event we are going to go to.
Is it a wedding, XV, christening, or another important event?
What time is the event, is it day or afternoon?
Normally when the events are during the day, we can opt for softer and fresher fabrics. And in lighter tones like pastel colors.
But if the event is at night it is better to use more vivid colors or with shiny details.
It can be blue, emerald green, red and even black or navy blue. And also opt for a little thicker fabrics, since the event is at night.
Remember that if it is a wedding, never wear white or very light colors, as it can offend the bride.
But otherwise in a christening the light colors look very nice since it is a very elegant ceremony and during the day.
Also remember that for this type of event, it is important to know what type of event it is: cocktail, gala or black tie?
The 3 most elegant styles when it comes to wearing an evening dress
1. The cocktail is regularly an evening event and you can wear a short dress.
2. Gala is usually a night event and you can opt for a long or mid-calf dress.
3. For a black tie affair you should go for a long, floor-length dress, this is the most elegant when it comes to dressing.
I hope that with these tips you feel ready to choose your next dress for that special event!
