When choosing the style of your dress, you may want to consider some of the styles that will flatter your figure the most. Strapless dresses can be used to draw attention to lovely shoulders, while some dresses are available that can promote an hourglass appearance.
Below you will find an array of choices when one is in need of a formal dress for that special occasion:
- Jacket Gown. When choosing a jacket gown for a formal event, you may prefer a dress selection with long sleeves, providing more coverage during your night out. Many of these gowns come in satin or lace options, offering a sexy yet still covered look.
- Velvet Gown. Velvet gowns, especially a chocolate-colored selection can make a statement. If you are interested in drawing attention away from the hip and waist area, choose a formal dress that features an empire waist.
- Lace Overlay Dress. Going for a classic look? Try a dress that offered a lace overlay bodice (preferably the color black) with a deep V in the front and back.
- Strapless Satin. For a nice streamlined look, consider this option where accessories can be used to the fullest effect. Long earrings and sparkling necklaces go well with this dress choice.
