First thing’s first, no matter how gorgeous the dress is on the hanger, it has to not only fit well, but enhance your best features. A size too small and you’ll look like a well-dressed sausage, too loose fitting and you’ll look sloppy. Pick a dress that enhances your curves and hides your flaws. First, get a little black dress and a white dress (okay…a red one, too). These are the anchors of your closet. Still got room? Get a lace dress, they’re swanky and never go out of style. Other options include a drape dress, a color-blocked dress and a fitted bodycon dress to show off your toned physique. Bling is another consideration, opt for unique design elements — be they sequins, lace, or Swarovski crystals. These are the conversation starters in your collection, as is your jewelry. Now, it’s time to bag some awesome party invites and bring it home with the final touch to any great outfit — an RSVP.
