Peyrevent.com – A short dress is referred to as a cocktail dress or a cocktail gown. A short miniskirt is also a skirt having its hemline considerably above the knee, usually no more than ten inches below the natural hem of the legs; and a short dress with such a hemline is known as a short mini dress or a mini-miniskirt. Longer dresses, typically floor-length dresses, are called cocktail dresses. These are often accompanied by cocktail jewelry, such as cocktail rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and wristwatches. A wedding date can be an important factor determining the choice of a short dress, as it would be impossible to choose one if it is not appropriate for the event.
The Ideal Type of Dress with Body Shape
The style of the dress and its fit all depends on the shape of your body, including the shape of your hips, waist, and thighs. If you have a long torso, the ideal type of dress is one which hugs your body, and looks short in comparison to the rest of your figure. In this case, your best bet would be a short dress with a flared hemline, as this makes the hem of the dress look shorter. For people with short torsos, on the other hand, a short dress can be the most flattering style. It elongates the body, and provides a flattering profile – a factor which shortens when wearing heels, for example.
Tights are an essential part of a short dress, and must be worn underneath the dress in the correct way. A dress which shows plenty of skin through the legs is best disguised by tights; similarly, a dress which is short and/or tight-fitting is unattractive because it obscures the legs. Tights also help to show off your legs, even if they are covered up underneath a short dress, as they help to lengthen the appearance of the legs. Because of this reason, tights should be worn underneath each and every dress you wear.
Wearing tights or stockings underneath your short dress also helps to draw attention to the most attractive parts of your body. When wearing a dress that shows off your legs, or when wearing high heels or other high-heeled shoes, your legs will be hidden behind the footwear. However, if you wear a dress which hides those legs, like a short dress, then you will draw attention to your legs. Thus, when wearing high heels or open-toed shoes, wearing tights underneath is essential if you want to minimize this effect.
Choosing Comfortable and Matching Shoes with Short Dresses
Comfort is also an important factor to consider when choosing a pair of shoes, especially when you are wearing short dresses. You need to find a pair of shoes which feels good and fits you well. Although there is nothing wrong with wearing a high-heeled or ‘barefoot’ shoe, if you do not feel comfortable in them then you are going to be more uncomfortable throughout the day. This means that you are more likely to put off wearing that pair of shoes. Therefore, if you are planning on wearing short dresses, it is imperative that you choose a pair of shoes which feels comfortable and fits you well.
Lace is another essential element of wearing short wedding dresses. However, the style of lace you are wearing can have a dramatic effect. For instance, some lace looks fabulous on a short dress, while some lace styles look out of place. If you are unsure about the different styles of laces, then it may be best to ask a professional for their opinion. As with tights and socks, the ideal length of lace can vary according to the outfit you are wearing.
Elegant and Classy Wide Hem Style
The hemline of the dress is an essential factor to consider when choosing a pair of dresses. If you are looking for a short dress which goes with a long hemline, then make sure to opt for a style with a flared hem. These types of gowns tend to look more elegant and classy. If you are opting for a pair of dresses with a short hemline, then make sure you opt for ones which feature a natural waistline and without too much embellishment around the waistline area. This will help to keep the hemline natural and stylish.
Also, another thing to consider is whether you would like your dress to have straps or not. Short dresses with straps are great for a variety of occasions. However, they tend to look more outdated compared to those with strapless bodices. The classic silhouette of a short dress is also the same shape as the collar bone of your collar. Therefore, if you are opting for short dresses, make sure you opt for one with a classic shape. With the right accessories, you will be able to find just the right style of dress for you.
