What Are We Looking For In These Dresses?
It’s important to feel comfortable and confident in what you wear. You can look for different elements in a dress that will help flatter your figure and hide what you are insecure about. It’s also important to try on any dresses that you are considering. By trying on a dress, you are able to get a real feel of the fit and how you feel in the dress
Style of Dress
When looking for a wedding guest dress, you need to take into consideration a few outside factors. These outside factors include things like weather or venue. The style of dress that you should search for should match the location and vibe of the wedding you’re attending. For more traditional weddings, classic wedding attire is expected. This usually includes a formal gown that is floor length. These dresses are usually special occasion dresses that are not worn often.
If it is a semi-formal wedding, a cocktail dress may be appropriate. You can also try to incorporate an elegant jumpsuit. The length can also be shorter than a traditional guest attire. Beach weddings and backyard weddings are often even more casual and you can dress accordingly. These dresses can include more patterns and more casual material.
Color and Fit
A key element of a wedding guest dress to also consider is the color and fit. It’s customary to avoid wearing white as to not take the attention off of the bride. But, other than that you have a choice of any color. You can follow the seasons when choosing a dress color. Darker colors are great for the fall and winter months. Softer, brighter colors are perfect for spring and summer. Loud prints and neon styles are not usually a color wedding guests should wear. It will make you stick out in photos and take attention away from the atmosphere of the wedding. Classic colors are a great option that will also help to hide your tummy and give your look an elegant feel.
Lastly, an element to consider when finding a wedding guest dress is the material of the dress. The material of a dress is very important because it can make a dress look elegant and refined or more casual.
Chiffon is a great material to look for when trying to hide your tummy. It is a soft, flowy material that is comfortable and breathable.
You can also look at pleated or textured material because it will camouflage your tummy and bring attention to the details of the dress. You might want to avoid satins and silks as they have little stretch and often don’t hide any flaws or areas you want to cover. Stretchy material is also good to look out for as they are more comfortable and are great for dancing all night!
