Dressing the Part

3 things to consider when dressing up for all types of Southern occasions.

Most Southerners appreciate a good party. There is so much hustle and bustle in our lives that people like to get out of their monotonous routine and dress up every once in a while. What if you have an upcoming party for which you want to get ready but aren’t sure what to wear? You may not know how to carry yourself for such an event, but we’re here to help you conquer the world like Scarlett O’Hara going forth in her mother’s velvet curtains.

Here are some fantastic tips and tricks that will help you in choosing the right type of dress, accessories and shoes for any party.

Location & Time of a Party

The first thing you must think about is the location of the party. It will help you understand what type of guests will be there and how they will be dressed. For instance, if it’s a prom night party or fundraiser, you will know that everyone will be wearing prom dresses.

After location, you must figure out the exact time at which the party will start. If it is in the afternoon, then lighter colors or a floral would be appropriate. For early evening, dark colors and an overall sharp look could work.

Consider Your Personal Style

For an evening party, you have to carry yourself with your own personal style. Do not try to do anything unusual that might not look good on you or make you uncomfortable. Always stick to what colors and looks suit you best. If you’re not sure, ask your friends and family for advice.

So, after figuring that out, you may look for an evening dress or short or long prom dresses that will suit your body type. This will include consideration of your skin tone, height, weight, body shape, etc. to find the best dress for yourself.

Think About Your Budget

After tackling location and personal style, you may start considering your budget. As you will probably need to buy not only a dress, but also accessories and shoes. Make sure your expenses meet your needs.
You may need a maximum amount for the dress, then shoes and and finally accessories. One more thing to budget for is makeup, which is also very important to complete your overall look for a party.

You should now know what you need to do to manage your evening party look. Don’t be like Scarlett in this regard and think about it tomorrow. A true Southern belle never neglects her appearance.
