The key to find the perfect New Year’s Dress is to first determine your body type. Now this might be a little troubling and may seem embarrassing but this is important. Not all dresses, beautiful maybe, suit specific body types. The understanding of this will be elemental in choosing the dress for a New Year Party. Nobody wants to leave any stone un turned looking their very best and you should not too!
Apple Shaped Body Type:
If you have upper body larger than the lower body, you will fall in this category. Naturally you will be gaining weight around your waistline, so it is better to avoid dresses with broad shoulders or that emphasizes more on waistline. Wrap tops or cinched waists will work for you since they will make your waist look smaller. Another option will be the belted waist jackets. These are more shaped and would not look tight. Empire style dresses can very neatly camouflage the stomach area. Do not wear anything that may project the waistline or lower body bigger. Something that would define your waist and is a little loose will make you more comfortable.
Pear Shaped Body Type:
Imagine a pear; smaller upper body and weighty thighs, hips and legs. You need to have something that shall draw attention to the upper half of your body. Dresses with wider neckline like cowl, bateau or squared necks will look great. If you plan on wearing a jacket, look for one that is not longer and falls just below the waist. Go with lighter colours on top and darker on the bottom half. Also vertical patterns can give an illusion of smaller legs. You cannot get wrong with a funnel shaped coat that has buttons on top. It will emphasize your waist.
Hourglass shaped body type:
A simply curvy figure with defined waist is an hourglass type. The attention shall be drawn towards the narrow waist. If you are thinking of a longer leaner look, it will not be difficult to have it. Go for monochromatic colours or v-necks, single buttoned jackets or thin fabrics. To focus more on curves look for wrap dresses, waist defining garments or belted garments, fitted skirts, high raised skirts and pants. There are lots of options for the hourglass shaped women available and it is hard to go wrong with any on them unless you are wearing tight wide-cut pants making your bottom seem wider.
Rectangle shaped body type:
There may not be much difference between the breast, waist and hips measurement. As such there will be fewer defined curves. Those dresses shall be chosen in this case that would make the body seem more curvaceous. Scoop tops, jackets with defined waist, draping dresses
with patterns, tops with much detailing around the chest area will look great on you. Skinny jeans will give your lower body shape too. Avoid horizontal pattern and white colour that may make your figure look wider.
Every figure has its pros and cons. Something, that may look amazing on one may not be the best choice for the other. The only way you can get the perfect fabulous look is by accepting your body type. Then only you will be able to understand the details and ultimately accentuate it. The retail stores will be packed with New Year dresses so finding the right piece will not be much difficult. As you will find more about yourself, it will get only easier for you in future, and may be you will be able to help your friends judge the perfect dress for the party too.
