The elegant evening dress is timeless. It defies fashion trends. Fashionable, is a murky word when it comes to special events. Largely it’s whatever is most comfortable, flattering and appropriate to you.
It’s not the sort of outfit you can wear to the shops. For many of us the chance to really dress up and go out is rare. Events can be glitzy, award winning, a graduation or milestone birthday. It’s however you want to celebrate.
I am not talking about a few drinks at the local nightclub with your mates on a Friday night. This is very special indeed. And of course you want and to stand out from everyone else there.
You may already know exactly what you want. Or you may have found inpiration in several dresses and can’t decide.
Above all, be appropriate. The press is littered with celebrity faux pas, and you would do well to take note. Not everything you see will suit you, that’s the nature of clothes. Something you love may not suit your shape, the event, or have endless opportunities for ‘nip slips’ or accidental knicker flashes. If you’re to be at an event with a meal, or dancing, think of the practicalities of it.
Even with this minefield of possible mishaps there are also ample opportunities for finding your dream dress. And it needn’t be off the hanger either. You can custom alter off the rail dresses, or have something made completely to your own design.
The possibilities are endless. Just think of that….
