Happy Valentine’s Day! For today’s look I am wearing a dress perfect for this special day. I love the colors red, pink, white and black for this lovely day. Whether you want to create a sweet or sexy look choosing a color that compliments your skin tone and hair color is a must. You will know if it does because your skin will appear bright and radiant. If you look dull and washed out the color doesn’t suit you.
When looking for the perfect dress determine beforehand what part of your body you want to highlight and what you may want to hide then find a silhouette that does both. Have beautiful shoulders? Try a strapless dress. Have an hourglass figure? Wear a dress that cinches at the waist and hugs your curves. Have great legs? Try a shift dress (like the one I am wearing). Are you thin with few curves? You are one of the only body types that can pull off a super sexy dress without looking vulgar. Get the idea?
As a general guideline for determining if a short dress is still of an appropriate length see where your fingertips fall in relation to the dress. If the dress ends where your fingertips end then the dress is in proportion with your body and is still classy. If your fingertips fall below the hemline the dress is likely too short for your body.
