Do you have a special occasion or a grand party at work that you need to attend? Do you already have the perfectly elegant evening dress for the event? You don’t have to spend your entire month’s paycheck on one. Consider checking designer resale stores for more affordable but still truly sophisticated pieces.
Make sure you find silhouettes or designs that are classically stylish. This way, you don’t look neither dated nor too trendy. You can even wear the dress on other future occasions (even those years from now). The timelessly graceful sheath dresses, A-line gowns and empire waist dresses without too much accoutrements are foolproof choices.
Black, Neutrals, and Other Failsafe Colors
A classic color of the fabric or basic colors in the design is another timeless quality to look for. Black will never go out of style and it can give you a bold look especially if the cuts and adornments are exquisitely executed. You can also choose alluring neutrals or bolder and more vibrant hues like deep red and pale pink.
The Rest of the Outfit
Don’t forget to think of how you can accessorize the dress. Some plainer gowns will call for big, chunky jewelry, while others are detailed enough to only need simple accessories.
Suitable Size Over Style
The most important consideration, above all, is how the dress suits your proportions and body shape and flatters your figure.
