All girls from age 2 to 90 want to look beautiful and fashionable.
One needs to know how to dress up in order to draw out one's beauty at
the same time hide one's flaws. An eye-catching evening dress is a
must-have for every woman's wardrobe. At a night party, in order to be
the center of attraction, one's choice needs to be perfect. The trick
lies in choosing a dress that perfectly suits and compliments your body
shape. Once you have determined your body shape viz. pear, apple, and
hourglass or athletic, one can enhance it in many flattering evening
For a pear shaped body, A-line evening dresses are
ideal as they help cover up the heavy bottoms, accentuate slim necks,
and bust. A wrap evening dress or an empire shaped waist, light colors

the bust and gives a seemingly tall look. Halter styles in a small
patterned design enable you to show off your slim shoulders. A
full-length evening dress with a defined waistline definitely warrants a
second look. Avoid baggy clothes and straight lines in jackets, skirts,
or trousers teamed with short tops, as they will take away inches from
your height. Embellishments such as ruffles or laces will actually tend
to hide your curves. Given such natural assets, why make any efforts to
emphasize the look!
