Tips for Choosing Killer Holiday Dresses  

Across the globe, women love to dress up for a party, and part of the fun includes buying a party dress. When looking good tops the priority list, selecting a dress that both matches an individual’s style, color for instance red holiday dress, and flatters their body is a must. However, this is dictated by the type of party, one’s body shape, as well as personal taste

While there is a wide range of holiday party dresses, including holiday cocktail dresses
, choosing a party dress is something that needs some knowledge about fits that compliments each shape, the right style etiquette, as well as how to accessorize the dress.

Here are some tips that can help you choose killer holiday dresses:


Apple-shaped women are bigger at the top, broad shouldered, and have a larger bust line. Although unlike an hourglass figure, their waists are not well defined, they are leaner through the hips. If you have an apple shape, go for party dresses with V-necklines. These tend to flatter this shape, for instance empire waist dresses which make the lower half of the body look slim.  Also, to show off slim legs, ensure that the dress has a cut just above the knee.


Busty women, who are actually bigger on top, and have a shorter waist and a small lower body, often find it difficult to find a dress that fits their sizes.  Diverting attention from their bustline and making their body appear streamlined is top priority. If you are in this list, keep off dresses with printed patterns on the top. Instead, go for A-line dresses that will flatter your figure. Actually, a dress that has additional bounce on the bottom is helpful in adding balance.


Women with hourglass figure have curves on the top and bottom; they usually have a tiny waist and their legs are shapely. If you fall in this category, find a dress that has a belt or clinches at the waistline. Avoid a shift dress since straight-line dresses at times make hourglass figures look boxy.


Pear-shaped women have shoulders that are narrower than their hips and thighs. Besides, they usually have smaller busts. If you have a pear shape, look for a flowing party dress that has a fitted top and bottom as it tends to balance the slender frame and accent a small waist. Gathered detailing on the dress’s top highlights the chest and neckline.  


Petite women are short, with a slim or curvy body. If you are in this category, go for party dresses that will elongate your shape. Short dresses tend to make legs appear longer. Go for simpler lines that don’t have many details that add further bulk. These tend to make a small figure appear weighed down.
