Prom, Ball and Party Dresses

If you are lucky enough to be going to a prom, ball or evening party this spring or summer, you will no doubt already be starting to think about that all important subject, what to wear? For most of us a prom, party or ball is the perfect opportunity to get really dressed up, the chance to pull out all the stops and look gorgeous in formal evening wear for just one night.

If you love dressing up, then you will probably want to consider carefully what style of prom dress will suit you best.

Pintuck Long Dress

If you are an hourglass shape, make the most of your figure by finding a dress that emphasises and nips in at the waist. Sashes are a great way to do this. A long straight dress or one with a fitted bodice and a line skirt are perfect.

If you are pear shaped look for dresses with some detail at the top. Avoid detail around the hips and skirt area and look for styles that are fitted around the waist. Empire lines dresses and a line skirts both look good on pears.

Trinny and Susannah Silk Belted Dress

If you have no waist look for prom dresses with horizontal or vertical lines that elongate the body. Avoid belts ans sashes or detail on the waist of the dress. Look for simple dress designs. Low waisted dresses look good and also skirts that flare out from the hip.

For the athletic build, make shoulders appear narrower by wearing halterneck and low back dresses. Balance out wide shoulders with a flared skirt. Short dresses and sheath dresses will look amazing on you.
