The recent hot weather seems to have encouraged more women to wear dresses and skirts. Retailers have responded fast. Stores like have an amazing choice available. If you have not updated your dress collection for a while, now is an especially good time to do so. To help you to quickly find and buy your ideal dress and do so for the right price I have put together a few effective shopping tips.
Choosing the best cut for your body shape
Buying the right cut for your body shape can make a huge difference in how good you look. It is all too easy to fall into the habit of wearing the same styles. For some women, this works well. They simply update the colour palette and accessorise differently so that they fit in with the latest fashion trends. But, this approach only really works if you maintain a steady weight and work out regularly. Most of us cannot do this consistently. For example, I recently lost a lot of weight and inches and I now exercise more as well. So, my body shape has changed drastically, which means that I have had to review the style of clothes I wear.
For most women, it makes sense to periodically remeasure themselves and reassess their body shape. Then find out which cuts are most likely to look good on them. You can find out exactly how to do this, by clicking
Buy for the occasion
When you are buying a dress for a special occasion it is important to be disciplined. It is all too easy to fall in love with a dress, buy it, and realize, too late, that it is not really suitable. If there is a dress code it is always best to follow it. This article, I wrote a while back, includes tips to help you to buy the right type of outfit for the occasion.
You also need to take into account practical considerations. For example, can you bend down and pick something up without being immodest? Will your new dress fit in well with the rest of your wardrobe? There is no harm in occasionally buying something that is radically different from what you normally wear. But, ideally, you want to be able to get as much use out of each new purchase as possible.
It is also important to consider how easy it will be to look after. If you are living on a budget, there is no point in buying a lovely dress that has to be dry-cleaned Quality matters
If you are planning to wear your new dress for more than one or two occasions the quality of the garment matters. A dress that is well-made will hang better and look good on you for longer.
Stick to the classics
The best way to buy a dress that you can continue to enjoy wearing is to choose a classic cut. They never really go out of fashion and can easily be accessorised to change the way you look.
