What should we wear for some special occasions such as dinners, parties, and candlelit dinner dates? A dress with right kind of fabric, design, cut and color is a wise choice for us.
For garden or afternoon parties, you can choose a dress made of plain or printed fabric with a hemline about one to two inches below the knee. You don’t need to care about the material. As long as dress is light and you can move freely with it, you can choose to wear cotton, silk, or light diaphanous fabrics. It is recommended to choose pastel-colored clothes for they can express femininity and gentleness. Do not choose overly bright color, for they can be overwhelming for the eyes and does not match the mood and the suggested time.
On the other hand, you can choose something too bland you could end up blending in with the furniture. For example, you can wear a green outfit for a garden party! Wearing a little black cocktail dress or an outfit with a neutral-toned top and white skirt is a safe choice.
You can go to town and look stunning in a red figure-hugger for an evening party. Or, you can wear bright colors or big geometric patterns and still get away with it because it is evening. You can choose aqua with black and white or even fluorescent hot pink.
You had better drop these rules and think more about the actual theme when dressing for weddings. For summer or spring weddings, you can choose soft and feminine pinks ad pastels. For a winter or fall wedding, you can consider a dramatic black and metallic bustier with a velvet skirt. Do not choose the same color as the bridesmaids.
For a romantic date night, you should choose feminine pastel shades. If you don’t plan on putting on a spectacular show for everyone, you should not wear long dress. Don’t dress too flirty.
As we know, dressing involves a lot of fashion sense. You will not make a spectacle out of yourself if you know what to wear at which times. Generally, soft and feminine for formal; daring and dramatic for dances; and other evening events is the way to go.
