Style Guide: The Perfect Plus-Size Cocktail Dress
Posted by IGIGI on May 13, 2014
Does your summer agenda call for all kinds of cocktail parties? Are you going mad pondering about what to wear when? We have the best plus-size cocktail attire for you whether it is a semi-fancy pool party, a garden reception or a five star style full blown celebration!
Here are a few tips to think about before you pick styles.
Consider the type of occasion.
What type of occasion is it, and how close are you to the event owner? The fancier the event and the closer your relationship, the higher the stakes are, so it is important to dress event appropriate.
Determine your assets.
What do you love about yourself the most? We all have our favorite parts. If you have legs to die for, pick a shorter style. If you have a nice décolletage, wear a nice deep cut number to show it off. If your small waist is the talk of envy, bring it out more in an A-line fit.
Pay attention to proportions.
Wear the dress; don’t let the dress wear you. Opt for shorter and simpler details if you are petite instead of all over embellishments, very large prints, or heavy draping. Try everything you like on and see the difference in lengths, size of prints and embellishment placements in your particular frame.
The Nencia Plus-Size Cocktail Dress in Flamingo and Nicolette Peplum Dress in Coral Reef make a flirtatious statement. While the Ambrosia Dress in Red takes it up a few notches with its shapely draping and deep red hue. Accessorize with the Penelope Earrings in Multi or the Francesca Earrings in Quartz.
The Francesca Dress in Dark Currant and the Brenda Dress in Jade Malachite offer simple sophistication you can easily style up or down. The Natasha Necklace will provide a fancy look while the Justine Necklace in Multi will speak sweet and chic.
