About Evening Dresses

Style is hard to define but easy to spot – and easier is to notice a flaw in it. Women fashion has evolved much over time. With changing trends, people are leaving old ways of dressing and focusing on a new one. These days going out for an evening party, wedding or special occasion demands much more than an expensive flared dress. The competition is high, everyone wants to stand out, which is the reason why the clothing sector has grown tremendously.


Studies have also revealed that an average woman spends about $80 and 11 hours per month on her styling ventures. However, a common mistake woman keeps repeating is picking a dress that does not match their style. They buy it otherwise just because it was looking good on another lady, was cheap or trending on social media. Making such mistakes while buying an evening dress for a special occasion is always costly. It can not only charge you hundreds of dollars on apparel, shoes and accessories but will also ruin your night and image for a long time. If you wish to look flawless and elegantly chic on a special occasion, important is to pick a dress carefully.


Common mistakes women make while buying maxi evening dresses


Wearing trendy outfit gives women a feeling of being a part of the crowd. It can boost their confidence, uplift their mood and help them feel beautiful. To the fact, every dress in the market can make you look gorgeous if not, it’s probably because the choice of colour or style is not the right for the occasion. Social surveys reveal that women are more than often to buy dresses just because they are trending for the moment. These women are found ignoring the fact that they don’t look flattering in that dress or it doesn’t suit the occasion. Today, we will share some of the most common mistakes’ women make while buying dresses for special events.


Maxi or coast evening dresses- Picking wrong size and style


Most of the women on this date believe that they will look flattering and attractive by revealing more of their skin. Although there is nothing with a bit of sex appeal, it has to be tasteful. A skirt or dress that is too small, especially on a family event will never help you look elegant and fashionable. It’s better to keep your short skirts and coast evening dresses for a friend’s party. Opt for maxi evening dresses with stylish cuts if you intend to look sophisticatedly sexy with a classy vibe in a family gathering. Moreover, falling for an extra length gown in the belief that it will look more flattering could end up as a disaster. Never try manipulating one dress style to mimic others.


Casual or formal dresses for plus size – Not choosing according to the occasion


Not choosing a dress according to the occasion, can be the biggest disaster. It is a common mistake woman make while shopping evening dresses. Ladies, your occasion is important and the key to impressing is to know the environment and dress up accordingly. The worse thing a woman can do to spoil her image is to be over or underdressed. If not sure about the situation, ask the host for dress code or consult others who are going be on the eve so that you can plan ahead. Moreover, avoid buying a style, keeping Instagram in mind. Rather than focusing on what is trending, pay attention to the nature of the occasion. Additionally, consider height, body size and type while selecting colour, print or cuts when you head to buy ladies formal wear in Dubai.


Picking lavish and avoiding affordable evening dresses


Being unrealistic about their budget is another major blunder woman make. Most of the women believe that a costly dress will always look good on them no matter what. It’s not necessary that dress with big numbers on the price tag is always classy. Thus, recommended is to clearly define and stick to the budget while heading to buy evening dresses. It merely does not mean that you can pick a dress from sale just because it was cheap. However, you can consider visiting stores that offer designer evening gowns on sale. Such stores are the best places to explore different styles, colours and cuts from brands and buying one in economical price that suits your budget.


None or long sleeve evening dresses – Ignoring the details


Attention to details like length of sleeves, cuts, use of sequins and flair of the gown plays a major role in building or destroying your entire look. Unfortunately, women do not pay much attention to these small yet crucial details while shopping. Besides the main course, your dress, accessories are also important to look at. If you are not able to pair them in the right style, colour and proportion of jewellery, all the efforts are in vain. Similarly, important is to ensure that your dress creates a smooth silhouette with no bumps, bulges or peek-a-boo of undergarments. Moreover, the dress should be wrinkle-free if it’s made of soft fabric like silk, and there should be no threads or tags coming through it.

  • Consider the accessories –Remember ladies every bit of your personality is a blessing and needs a little attention and accessories to flaunt it. While setting a budget, dress must not be the only price consideration for you. Keep in mind that you will need to have a pair of matching footwear, jewellery items, clutch and some shades of cosmetics to complete your look.
  • Finding the right fit –A extremely fitted dress might get eyes on you. But will make you spend entire night tugging and pulling all the material in. Just like the confidence of a lady, a moderate fit also plays a role in unleashing the true beauty of women in a gown. Better is to get your recent measurements and try to find a dress in the exact size.
  • Consider undergarments –Do you know the layering concept in winter wear? Somewhat same applies on wearing evening dresses. As they are made of delicate material, and silhouette should be your primary concern. Always consider some space for undergarments and don’t let them do a go-show when you wear that delicate body-hugging dress.
  • Dress for the eve –Picking the right dress is also about where you will be wearing it. A wedding dress is not the same as an evening dress that you can wear to a work function. Likewise, for a cocktail party, you need to keep it simple yet chic. Going for an A-line skirt with a sweetheart neckline would be flirty yet not over the top.
  • The Hues –An evening dress must compliment your skin tone and it is an important point to consider. In the case of mayhem, black should be your pick. For lighter skin tones, you can consider going with winter and natural hues. While on the flip side, you can go for colours like coral, pale blue, and red. They help to stand out in the crowd.
  • The shape of the dress-Pick a dress that sophisticatedly flaunts your signature curves. For a tall and thin body, you can opt for tight-fit gown while girls with hourglass shape would sexier in a low-cut dress that nips at the waist. Ladies with some junk in the trunk or a pear-shaped body should go for slimming black gown that draws attention upward with a lacy, sheer top.

Question & Answer

When to wear evening dress

The evening dresses come in different styles and cuts. Wearing an evening dress depends on your personality and what the style calls for the evening. You can wear evening dresses generally at weddings, lavish birthday parties, work parties, prom night, or an executive dinner party. Moreover, evening dresses need to be paired with footwear and jewellery carefully. The combination of all helps to create a perfect look for your evening dress for any occasion.

What is formal evening dress?

Formal evening dresses are long flared gown that is body-hugging above the waist but wider below it. Mostly made of sleek fabric these look like a long frock. Formal dress codes always demand minimum jewellery and hairdo with polished makeup to elevate the look.

The formal evening dress is neither too short like a skirt nor too long like a gown. Moreover, they are generally paired with sleek accessories and makeover.

What to wear with evening dress?

It is important to have an evening dress according to your body type. Moreover, it must have to be comfortable keeping you adored and confident all night. If your dress is not too long or full, pair them with high heels to keep it from dragging on the floor. Pairing your evening dress with flats is never a good idea. Moreover, prefer going with one bold piece of jewellery. If you are wearing a low neckline, consider wearing a bold neckless and forget about the earrings at all. Your handbag must also compliment your evening dress. Thus, an everyday bag can never be an option to consider with your dress.
