We know, it’s not even November yet and we already have you covered for your winter night out dresses. But, as the days are getting steadily colder, we thought it was about time to get all the info ready for you.
We know that buying something new for every event is never practical. To help you find those key items you will want to wear over and over again we have created this three-step guide.
Find your perfect colour for your winter night out dress
One great way of ensuring the longevity of any wardrobe item is by paying attention to its colour. Buying winter night out dresses in colours that really compliment your own colouring is a perfect example.
For example: If you have blonde hair and blue eyes go for a striking blue dress to bring out your features. If you have darker skin and hair you could go for a burgundy red to bring out the warmth of your skin tone.
Take inspiration from the trends, but not too much.
It is always good to go for something that makes you feel stylish and fashion-conscious. But looking too much at the trends can be likely to distract from finding the best tone for your colouring.
Go for seasonal tones in your winter night out dresses.
Opting for winter-related colours will make your clothes much more wearable this season.
Try to avoid anything too bright or pastel toned this time of year. These items would make a statement for one event but you won’t want to wear it time and again.
Find a style of winter night out dresses that looks great on you
You probably know this well, but we do think it’s important. If something doesn’t make you feel good, chances are, you won’t wear it. Just think of the last piece of clothing that really made you feel amazing, it’s probably one you want to wear often.
One important thing to consider is the material your dress is made from. Avoiding very synthetic, materials can be preferable. As these are more likely to feel harsh against your skin.
It is also important to pay attention to material quality as it can drastically affect the life span of the dress. Especially if you are someone who expects to wash your night out dress after every use. If so opt for cotton or a cotton blend material, as they react better to being washed often.
It is also a great idea to think about how much skin you usually feel comfortable having on show.
There is, of course, nothing wrong with dresses partywear that shows a little skin. But, if you feel you won’t always be in the mood for this. Why not go for winter dresses maxi or winter dresses with long sleeves?
If you are after something extra but want to avoid anything too revealing. Go for an exposed back over a deep v neckline.
Think about what you are going to wear your winter night out dresses with
Another great way to get many wears out of dress night out is considering what items you will wear with them.
If you have your eyes on a beautiful puffed sleeve winter night out dress then its time to consider your other items too. The weather is starting to get colder and many of us are pulling out our winter coats. Remember that no matter how much you love the dress, if you can’t fit it in a coat, it won’t be reliable winter wear.
It is also recommended to think of the length of your dress too. If you have bought yourself a maxi dress, does the end of the skirt hit the floor? If so does this mean that you need to wear heels with it?
Of course, if you love this long dress you can easily get it taken up to ensure it is more wearable. But, in general, it is a good rule to find pieces that can be worn with all different styles of footwear. To be able to wear a dress with flats, heels and boots allow it to be worn for many different occasions.
