Pick the Perfect Party Dress – Here’s How
You’ve got a big snazzy party coming up that you’re looking forward to. Ideally, you want to look chic and feel comfortable in the outfit you choose while exuding confidence. If you’re unsure about what to wear and what’s trending, Lipstick London can help you out. Here’s our guide on picking the perfect party dress that will flatter your figure.
Petite ladies generally struggle with looking “too small.” As much as smaller frames are glorified on social media, more petite women tend to feel ignored in social gatherings. For those who are unsure if they fall in this category, they’re generally considered to have a small waist and be under 5’3”.
Finding clothes that complement your frame can be difficult; when it comes to the silhouette, opt for something with volume. A peplum top with a short pencil skirt will work perfectly on you. You get the volume on your hips out of the peplum and the short hemline will elongate your legs.
An hourglass figure is something we all aspire to. It’s considered the most feminine form. Women with an hourglass figure have proportional shoulders and hips with a defined waistline. Ladies with such figures can pull off most cuts. The best options for you are a Fit ‘n’ Flare cut or a bodycon. The Fit ‘n’ Flare accentuates your hips as it cinches you in at your smallest point.
A pear body shape is when someone is wider on the lower half of their body. Big names like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Beyonce, and JLo have this body type and they absolutely rock it! Empire waistlines are the way to go with pear-shaped figures. They emphasize the petite top half and cover any “problem areas” of the lower half.
This body shape usually includes super slim women who have a uniform figure up and down. They aren’t as curvy as others but that doesn’t mean they can’t carry off party dresses as fabulously! Most high-fashion models have this body shape and they look good in anything.
Ruched designs and fabric with volume look good on such a figure. Flowy gowns can give the appearance of a more ample figure.
Ladies who are more full-figured, take some style inspo from Iskra Lawrence and Ashley Graham! Long hemlines aren’t as flattering, so it’s best to stick to midi and mini lengths. Baggy silhouettes won’t be as flattering. Party dresses that hug your curves are your best option.
