It’s is almost every dame’s desire to have a sneak peek at herself in a  long,sassy and spectacular evening gown.Be it a classic one or more on a stylish side,we all wish to wear them.Here are ways to select the right one for you:-

Dark colors are popular and acceptable choices for formal attire because they portray a sophisticated and classy image. But again, it depends on the formality. Also if you want to stand out from the crowd you can wear evening gowns in just about any color – or print for that playful summer look.

It might be a little tricky to pull off the long gown-look because if you don’t pick the right style for your figure, it just won’t look right. The trick is to find a gown style that will bring out the best in your body figure and minimize the parts you’re not too confident about.


Basically, work with what you’ve got – your body proportions and height.

Here’s a look at what styles and trends you should embrace:-

Determining your body shape is quite crucial in finding the perfect evening gown.

Evening gowns are available in many designs such as halter, backless, strapless, but by knowing the shape of your body you’ll know what gown styles will flatter your body figure.

For example, if you’re very self-conscious about your wide shoulders (a so-called ‘inverted triangle body shape), you may want to find something that will slim them down and perhaps add more volume to your hips and thighs to balance out your body shape.

Are you petite (5’4″ or shorter)?

The thing about long dresses is that they tend to swallow up petite women. If you’re Petite you should opt for long slim dresses that sit close to their body especially around the hips and waist area to define the torso for a pulled together, feminine look.

Select the right colors

Another important step when scouring for that perfect formal evening gown, is picking the right color for your complexion. The wrong colors can hurt your appearance, making you look pale and drab.

Like for example, not all reds flatter everyone. Blue-toned reds such as burgundy looks better on cool-toned women compared to warm complexions. Tomato red looks stunning on golden/peachy complexions with dark or warm golden hair.

how to accessorize your evening gown:

If you’re wearing long earrings, keep your chest free from necklaces. If you’re wearing stud earrings then you can add a statement necklace.A  is stud earrings, solitaire necklace and a simple chain/crystal/or pearl bracelet.If your gown is heavily embellished (or has an eye catching pattern to it) then you should always pick/buy a gown  you decide on your jewelry.When buying formal evening gowns  always  to make sure that the hem will barely touch the ground.
