What Should You Do When Buying Formal Dress

It's the season to choose your right formal dress, if you want to stand out from the crowd, the below suggestions you should follow. While it may seem overwhelming and daunting to sift through the various formal looks and figure out which one is really the best for you, the event of dress shopping should be fun in itself.

Start shopping early. This allows you more time to look at designer’s websites and fashion magazines to see which new styles are out this season and see which ones you prefer. It also improves your chances of finding a unique style that is different from anyone at your school.

Take your school dress code in mind. Many schools have simple guidelines like the dress just has to be longer than mid-thigh but others are stricter. They veto exposed bare backs or exposed belly buttons, making the trendier illusion and cut-outs difficult to wear. Some schools allow you to just wear a wrap over it. If you know what’s allowed, it makes the day easier.

Find a reputable store to buy the dress. This way, you can see many designer styles up close and try them on to see which kind works best with your body type. Peaches Boutique is one of the top dress stores in Chicago, IL, and their staff are well trained in helping teen girls finding the perfect dress.

Wear comfortable shoes but bring the ones you plan to wear to formal. You’ll want your comfortable tennis shoes so you can make the most of this shopping trip but when it comes time to try on formal dresses, make sure you have the heels you want to wear that night. This will help as you check hemlines with your shoes. In addition, bring any lingerie with you so you see how it works underneath your gown. Take some photos so you can compare dresses.

Don’t bring your entire entourage. While other opinions are helpful, stick to one or two people, like your mom and your best friend. This way, when you’re starting to get tired, they’ll offer honest opinions in your best interest, and you’ll still look stunning.
