A Mixture of Class and Elegance
Some people are not comfortable wearing strapless evening dresses for a number of reasons. They can be plus sized and it won’t look good, or they just are not comfortable showing too much skin. A good solution to this is to wear a scarf or preferably a shawl. Doing this will keep the classy look of a strapless dress design yet you won’t be uncomfortable with the skin showing. There’s also a practical point behind this as well. A shawl will keep you warm during the cooler climates and is an accessory that will look elegant and give a classic look a bold statement. This is a great combination for evening parties that may be outdoors or on yachts for example.
Something to keep in mind the length of the dress as well. While many women prefer a shorter dress, around knee length, that length is more for cocktail parties and is a good choice for less formal attire. This is probably one of the biggest mistakes that women make. An evening dress should not be the length of a cocktail dress but it should be much longer. In the case of balls or other formal occasions, the best length is ankle length or longer where it drapes on the floor. This longer length is suitable for dress attire for evening parties and you won’t be under-dressed compared to if you wore a shorter gown.
This model is a very elegant example of a strapless evening dress gown. The design is very simple, yet still keeps a very chic look. The key to wear a gown like this is in the way accessories are worn. As the example shows, the jewelry is kept simple; a diamond bracelet and pendant earrings. Another great addition for more formal occasions would be diamond necklaces. An outfit that will definitely make heads turn.
