Why choose a LBD over another type of party dress?

Go for a classic cut

The nice thing about the right little black dress is that it has a timeless quality. Provided you stick with the classic cuts you can potentially wear it year after year and still look on trend.

Dress for your body type

Correctly identifying your body type is not difficult to do. This article shows you how to do it the right way. Once you understand what shape you are narrowing down your options and buying the right party dress for you becomes a lot easier.

Try the dress on properly

Once you have found a possibility take the time to try it on. Make sure that you do it properly. You need to look at yourself from all angles to check how it hangs and make sure it looks just as good from the back and the sides as it does from the front.

Remember to check that you can move freely when you try on your dress. This is particularly important if you are a mum with a baby or toddler. You do not want to wear a dress that you fall out of when you bend over to pick up your children.

Even if you are not a mum checking that the party wear you choose affords you enough freedom of movement is still important. After all, when you dance you do not want your dress to constrict your movements.

Make the necessary adjustments

Provided it fits reasonably well you can go ahead and buy the dress, but be ready to employ a professional to improve the fit. It is surprising how much of a difference taking up or letting down a hemline by a few centimeters can make to how good you look.

Don’t scrimp on the accessories

Likewise, resist the temptation to scrimp on the accessories. They will make a huge difference to how good you look. If you are on a tight budget, just buy some good quality second-hand accessories or borrow what you need from friends. That way you will not spoil your look by wearing something that is worn or too old-fashioned.
