The girls in the Models Direct office are starting to get excited about all the festivities that are due in the coming weeks and we are considering investing in that special party frock that will make us feel and look fab. After considering current trends we’ve decided to share our cheap party dressestop five styles with you.
That means it’s off to a good start, but still has plenty of room to grow before it reaches its full potential. Can you help it flourish? If you think the article offers complete and accurate instructions, feel free to remove this tag!
Learn Step 1
1Learn how to wear one shoulder dresses. Asymmetric dresses are still a great style for winter 2010/2011 and they can look classy and feminine with a longer hemline, or younger and more contemporary when worn shorter. There are lots of options on the high street right now so why not shop for something that reflects your personal style in terms of colour, or go for a christmas twist by choosing a sequinned or embellished design.
Try Step 2
2Try the classic LBDs. The little black dress never goes out of fashion but this year you could make it more current by opting for something in a lace finish. If you go for a more traditional style or already have a favourite LBD then why not glam it up with some accessories? A contrasting handbag with matching shoes can really brighten up your look, pearls can help you to exude class, or you could go festive with embellished heels and diamante jewellery.
Go for Step 3
3Go for strapless and corset dresses. If you have great shoulders and toned arms show them off with a strapless or corset dress which can look gorgeous with these assets. If you are showing a lot of flesh on the upper body it can be best to avoid very short styles so choose something with a knee-length or long hemline and be the belle of the ball.
Dare Step 4
4Dare to wear a mini dress. If you feel confident in a mini-dress then don’t be afraid to go for it this winter. Slash-neck styles can be very classy and heels will really make the most of your pins. If you’d like to rock this look but aren’t quite so confident then why not take advantage of the ongoing legging trend and wear some underneath a more casual mini dress for an edgier, quirkier feel.
Consider Step 5
5Consider other ideas. Nude colours, animal prints and brights are all on trend and can help you to stand out in the crowd. If you go for something like this then try to keep the rest of your outfit quite simple or it could look a little ‘over kill’.
