There are several styles of dresses, so it can be a daunting task to choose the best one for you. Here are some things to consider when buying a pastel dress!
The most important thing is to choose a dress that you feel good in. Please keep in mind that the following advice is not strict fashion law! Instead, they are just general rules to help guide you if you’re unsure of which direction to go.
If you have an hourglass figure, a cinched waist helps keep your figure and accentuates your curves. Shapeless dresses tend to look boxy, making you look like you're swimming in fabric.
If you have a pear or triangle body type, A-line dresses tend to be a flattering choice. They have a fitted top and flowy bottom. These dresses will feel comfortable and accentuate your body type.
If your body is more straight than curvy, volume-increasing details are good for filling out more space. For example, ruffles and jewels can add volume and interest. A-line dresses also tend to flatter athletic body types.
V-necklines tend to balance apple body types. This is even truer for people with apple body types and larger breasts; these dresses are usually structured in a way that's comfortable for your breasts and allows them to breathe.
From mini to maxi, dresses come in all lengths and sizes. We will break down the lengths here!
Mini dresses are a staple style. Mini dresses are great for everyday and fancier wear. Mini dresses tend to elongate your legs, especially for petite people.
Midi dresses take us back to the Audrey Hepburn days! Because of their popularity in earlier eras, these dresses give off retro vibes. These dresses can be paired casually with sneakers and more formally with heels.
They fall at about mid-calf, which may be more difficult to pull off than other lengths. However, with the right shoes and the right length, they're very elegant.
Maxi dresses work well with all heights as long as you don’t get one that's too long or too short for you. They are basically the go-to dresses for summer! Since they usually have lighter fabric compositions, they are a favorite for people who prefer to show less leg as well.
Asymmetrical dresses are a newer style of dress. These dresses look like they have two different lengths of skirts stitched into one. They give off a modern look and strike a nice balance between conservative and mini.
Pastel shades complement skin with cool undertones well. If you have fair skin, make sure to have some boldness in your look to prevent looking washed out, whether that’s with your makeup or your jacket! On the other hand, warmer colors tend to match skin with warm undertones.
For darker skin tones, lavender, yellow, and cream are great choices! They pop without being overpowering.
Dresses are often made of a polyester blend. If you prefer more lightweight dresses, a nylon mix may be better. If warmth is important to you, wool might be more up your alley.
For people in warmer climates, linen will keep you cooler than other fabrics. The downside, however, is that linen tends to wrinkle easily. If you prefer to have more mobility, spandex blends tend to have better stretch!
