What to consider when wearing long dresses

Collection of long dresses has become a fashion staple for almost every woman. They have in fact become versatile and appropriate for every dressing purpose; office, formal as well as casual wear. Well fitting African long dress has the benefit of making you feel feminine and boosting your confidence. However, the very many long dresses on market, and the occasional limitations of high street has made the process of choosing the right long dress an intimidating experience.
The following are some of the considerations which can help you in maximizing and enhancing your fashion.

Body shape: if you have a pear shape, dark colors will give a good way in slimming your lower half. Deep blues, blacks and reds are very ideal. Going for lower neck-line which can accessories with your jewelries, draws eyes upwards.

Occasion: a party dress will never be an office option, right? If you are going for a stylish party dress, considering evening dress or a maxi dress can be a better option for you. Again, short sleeves and low necklines give you plenty room for accessorizing. For a fun event, for example, a birthday, you can look for brighter colors, while formal celebrations such as wedding will leave you to more understated designs. For those Africans who are not confident with baring arms and shoulders, light jacket or a shawl can be good addition to your outfit, allowing you to be really feminine without having self conscious feelings.

Always ensure that you are conscious of how some colors will work with your skin tone. Using very bright colors can leave you looking quite washed out. There are no fast rules in wearing long dresses. Just be aware of what people deem fashionable and also ensure that there’s good contrast between the dress and your skin.
