Tips to Style Gown Every Women Should Know
You went out on a limb and shopped for that exquisite party gown for your bestie’s wedding and now you are wondering how to style it to make your ensemble look amazing. Styling a gown is not a tricky affair but if not done well it can make even the most gorgeous of gowns look drab even on a celebrity. Keep some pointers in mind before you go and buy that gown dress and when you decide to style the complete look.
# Choosing What is Perfect for You
If a mermaid style party wear gown is in vogue, it does not mean that you need to buy the same style for yourself. Such a gown, for instance, would look good on you if you have a height to show off the fall of the gown well. Go for a gown dress that suits your body frame and height and the best way to do it is to wear the gown and see how it looks on you; not just in the picture, on the model wearing it.
#How Much is Too Much
How much of a skin show is going to look okay with your gown? You need to fix this one up before you choose the style of gown that you wish to buy. If you are going in for an off-shoulder gown make sure that the length of the gown is full. If the sleeves are full you can opt for an asymmetrical hemline party gown. If it’s a high slit gown, then a boat neck would show just the apt amount of neck. Sometimes less is more!
#Carry Those Heels
Agreed, that you still haven’t bought those heels that would go well with the gown but by now you would know the heel height you wish to wear with the gown. Carry a pair of the same height when you go gown shopping. This would give you an idea of how the gown would look on you. Also, in case any alterations that need to be done to the gown according to your height, they can be done accordingly. Even if you have a good height make sure you put on slight heels with the gown. Wearing flats with a gown is a complete faux pas. Nude heels, preferably closed pumps or peep toes, are a good pick to go with any gown dress of your choice.
#The Bag Nails the Look
Never. Read that again. Never carry a big hobo or duffel bag sort of thing with a gown. This elegant piece of dress requires you to carry a dainty clutch along with it. The clutch could be embroidered or studded with stones and sequins; it would depend on the kind of party wear gown you are wearing. With an ethnic or an Indo western gown you can match an embroidered clutch while with western cuts you can pair a studded clutch.
# Style those Tresses Well
Letting your hair loose or tying them in a bun; this choice can be made by you depending on what kind of hairstyle suits you the best. Side messy buns, a chignon, loose braid, cascading curls, or a simple ponytail; you can pick any.
# Accessorize it Well
Danglers, chandelier earrings, and studs are the kind of earrings you can pick to wear with your gown. A necklace should be added to the ensemble only if the neckline of the gown is wide enough to showcase the necklace well. With a high neckline gown or with a gown that has an embellished neckline, a necklace would look only OTT.
