Now that the winter holidays are over, take your time and relax before you start preparing yourself for the next much awaited celebration – Valentine’s Day. People of all age groups celebrate Valentine’s Day. The choice of dress for this occasion is very important, because its color is meant to convey a certain message. In this post we are going to talk about the red dress.
While a quick Google search will tell you that a red dress on Valentine’s Day means “love failure”, there’s more to it than just that. You shouldn’t wear a red dress if you’re looking for a new love affair or if you’re expecting your loved one to propose on this day. However, a red dress would be an ideal choice for you if you’re happy with your partner and the state of your relationship as it is. Choosing a red dress for Valentine’s Day would indicate that you love that special person in your life and are celebrating your love.
So, if you’re sure that your dress for Valentine’s Day is going to be red, then it’s time to consider the design of your red dress. Your choice will depend on where you’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day and what dresses flatter your body shape.
If you are going to a fancy restaurant, you should wear a slightly formal, but cute and sexy red dress. Combine your dress with high heels and a clutch purse.
If you’re going to the movies or to a concert, pick a slightly less formal red dress, which still looks attractive. Wear some trendy high heels and an oversize handbag with your dress.
If the climate of the area where you live is really warm and your significant other is taking you to a picnic or something during the day, you should consider a more casual outfit, like a sexy red sundress and a shoulder bag.
When choosing a dress for Valentine’s Day, you should also consider the type of your body. You should know what the most distinctive characteristic of your body is and how to accommodate it. Learn which dresses work best for your body shape, so that you will feel comfortable and confident.
If your body is shaped like an hourglass, you should make the most of your well-balanced curves and show them off with an elegant red dress, which doesn’t draw too much attention to them. Choose a dress that visually elongates your figure and add a belt to draw attention to your slender, well-defined waist. Wrap dresses are a good choice. A dark red dress will have a slimming effect.
If your body is shaped like a pear, then you should choose a dress that will draw the attention to the upper part of your body. This may seem a bit like a fashion challenge, but don’t despair. You can choose a dress with a lighter-colored top and accessorize with jewelry or a scarf. You can also add a belt around your waist.
If you have an apple-shaped figure, you will need to draw attention away from the middle area of your body. In this case, you can try a dress with a dropped waist that falls bellow your true waist. A dress in solid red color will make you look taller and slimmer.
For Valentine’s Day choose a dress that will be comfortable to wear and will make you look and feel beautiful. You still have plenty of time to choose the perfect dress that will convey the right message. Just stay relaxed and cool, and don’t make it look like you’ve tried too hard.
