Buying Guide For Cocktail Party Dresses For Women

How to choose the right dress for your style

Cocktail dresses have inevitably become the ultimate party dress for women. There is always a piece or two of it in a woman’s closet. It is the reminder that a woman can always find the excuse to go out and get glamorous for the night. Each cocktail dress was especially designed for a woman’s body type, accentuating every curve from various angles. There is always a cocktail dress for every woman. Such dress will help them transform their ordinary, everyday-looking self to their royal and sexy persona that’s ready to party.

There is a wide variety of women’s clothing shop that offers a great number of party dresses as options. In the local mall, there are quite a number of clothing boutiques that specialize in women’s clothing while there are an even greater number of online clothing shops that appeal to your unique taste in clothes. Perhaps the diverse offerings of all these shops offering women’s apparel have made it impossible to choose just one. The experience could really turn out to be a retail nightmare. A woman might just end up buying every cocktail dress that suits her without the need for it.

So what is it exactly that a woman should look for in a cocktail dress? There is no one-design when it comes to cocktail dresses. Some may appeal to be a cute dress while others may totally look sophisticated and sexy. While each piece might be unique on its own, cocktail dresses pretty much belong to the same category for a number of common features. Perhaps, every woman must know that the only varying factors that make a cocktail dress different are its shoulder cut-styles, the fabric used and the length. Although there is a notion that cocktail dresses are called such because all of them are relatively short compared to the long evening dress, it is not true at all times. Some cocktail dresses can be long.

So before you decide whether you’d go for the short style or the long type of party dress, it is important that you consider your body type. Remember, a dress may look perfect on a mannequin but not on you, not because your body is not perfect, but because the style of the dress might not be suitable for your body type. Before you make the final purchase, here are a couple of options that you might want to look into.

  • Shoulder Cut And Style

Shoulder style and cut can come in a wide variety making it even more difficult to make just one choice. The most common shoulder cuts are always redefined by a designer to give it a new look. However, if you want to get the basic idea of your options when it comes to shoulder cuts and styles, here’s a list of the most common ones available.

  • One-shoulder type
  • Thick straps
  • Strapless
  • Spaghetti strap
  • Halter neck line
  • Off-shoulder cuts
  • Lace sleeves

All these shoulder cuts and styles vary. One style may look good on women of a particular body type while there are others that might end up highlighting what’s supposed to remain unseen. For women with narrow shoulders, the halter type would be the best cut to go for. It will widen those shoulders perfectly. Conversely, one-shoulder type might be perfect for women with wide shoulders. It can be very perfect for minimizing a woman’s broad shoulders.

  • Fabric

From all-natural materials to man-made textiles, a woman has got a variety of options on her hand. The type of fabric to use is based on the style of the dress that you have chosen. It is important that you consult an expert at this point. If no fashion expert is available, it is best to try on the dress and see if it suits your taste, personal style and the occasion. Basically, there are two types of fabric that can be used for cocktail dresses – natural and man-made. Here are your options in a table.

Natural Man-made
·         Cotton ·         Nylon
·         Silk ·         Acrylic
·         Hemp ·         Modal
·         Bamboo ·         Spandex
·         Wool ·         Polyester

 

All these fabrics can be used to create that perfect dress you’re looking for. All you need is to choose which one and you’ll be good to go.

  • Length

How long should your cocktail dress be? It is important that you take not of how tall you are. The lengths of these dresses can be very short to very long trails on the ground. Unless you want to make a grand entrance that people at the party will never forget, you may want to choose a length in between the two. The most common of all cocktail dress lengths is the cut a few inches above the knee. These make a woman highlight her long, slim legs perfectly. For others who do not want people’s attention on their legs, they opt to wear floor length dresses instead.

The choice of length depends on the woman and how comfortable she is showing off her body. For example, some women prefer to add a belt to make the dress more stylish. At the same time, the belt adds a slimming effect, making her waist look smaller than it really is. Other women choose to wear short cocktail dresses because they want to show off their slim legs. Whichever length you end up with, keep in mind that it always has to flatter your figure and not ruin it.

The most convenient way to find a solution to this shopping dilemma is by knowing what it is that you are looking for. Be guided by your type of body shape and size. Remember, the goal is to always find that dress that flatters your figure and hides all the bulges. Armed with all the information, any woman would be able to traverse all the clothing shops and end up happy with a shopping bag that has the dress she’s looking for.
