When it comes to wearing a dress, there’s a lot of things we like to consider about our choices. Whether our body shape is right for the look, whether the dress is long or short enough for our tastes, and whether the colour is right for our skin tone. These are just a few of the questions that pop into our minds when it comes to not clashing in our style journey, but sometimes, it sounds a little bit like overthinking! So you want to wear a dress but isn’t sure it’s for you? Here’s some tips on finding the right kind of garment for your taste.
There is No Right or Wrong Answer
It needs to be said first of all: If you want to wear a dress, then the easiest thing to do is wear it! Look in the mirror as you do so and think, ‘this is great for me!’ Faking some confidence until you actually feel the real thing is what makes us a lot of the time, so start yourself on that path now.
Of course, everyone’s taste is different, and so people on the streets or at work might think something about you, or they might not. Being preoccupied on this thought is what stops us from branching out with what we want, so try to keep a lid on your self esteem! Finding something that fits you perfectly, and hugs you in all the right places is akin to finding the holy grail in the fashion world, so hold onto a dress if you’ve found one that does all that for you.
If You’re Curvy
Curvy figures can range from hourglasses to pear shaped bodies to any kind of body shape, depending on what juts out and what doesn’t. However, if you have great hips and thighs, then break them out with your dress shape. Wrap dresses are good at clinging to these assets and still leaving a lot of breathing room to freely move about in; you’re always going to look good when you have a bit of leg on show!
When it comes to wearing designer dresses, you have a lot of pick to choose from. Anyone can wear a designer dress; that doesn’t have to be an exclusive club. But make sure it’s something you like and know you would wear. No point forking out otherwise!
For a Triangle Shape
The shoulder to waist ratio of someone with this body type always looks good in something like stripes and checks. Patterns have a good optical illusion about them that can make certain parts of our body look bigger or smaller depending on their alignment.
If you’re insecure about your hip or shoulder size, you can maximise and minimise with these kind of patterns. Short dresses that show off the legs also work well with this kind of body shape, as there’s a lot to show off!
There’s a lot of dresses out there to choose from, so take a look!
