FUN AND FLIRTING
Lara dresses bring some of the most elegant looks available to the
table, thanks to the simple cuts that highlight the body, more than anything else. Wearing the Strapless
Mermaid Gown with Streaming Sequins or the A-Line Halter Gown with Gemstone Appliqué can seem like a
statement when you’re showing off your assets to their best advantage, and this collection is full of
other equally gorgeous, stylish, and sophisticated looks. Most importantly, the youthful cuts of these
gowns help them stay age-appropriate no matter what kind of occasion you’re attending, whether it be
a friend or family member’s wedding, a relaxed cocktail party, or your high school Prom! Rarely do designers
straddle the bounds between these types of occasions with such ease, but Lara dresses accomplish this
with style and glamour to boot.
SPEAKING OF BOOTS
perfect footwear for your Lara dresses can be a challenge, but it’s one that can be met with fun and
style – if you know what you’re looking for and how to match your shoes to your outfit. Some tips include:
Make sure that you choose shoes that feature heels that flatter your legs while still allowing you to
walk, since there’s nothing more upsetting than tripping or slipping because you’re not used to a higher
heel! While it might be tempting to look for shoes that match the shade of your gown to a T, try not
to choose all your accessories based on a matchy-matchy color scheme, or you’ll wind up looking like
you’re trying too hard, instead of as if you’re a glam chick who effortlessly melds her outfit with her
accessories. Black shoes are great with dresses that feature darker colors, but those gowns that are
meant to be worn in the summer months should be glitzy and glam! Boots are acceptable footwear for cocktail
dresses, particularly tres-chic ones like the Embroidered A-Line Slip Dress or the Contrast Ruche Short
Sheath with Sweetheart Neckline. When purchasing footwear it’s important to remember to compare the weight
of both shoe and gown, and realize that if you pair a light, airy fabric with a heavy leather boot, it’s
likely to look unbalanced. Avoid this pitfall by choosing boots made from lighter fabrics, or dresses
made from heavier ones, and you’ll find your appearance coming together perfectly.
BLUES AND GREENS
While this collection of Lara gowns features dresses in many colors
– and many dresses in multiple colors – the overt themes of the season are blues and greens that recall
the feeling of being near the sea. These light, non-obtrusive colors are perfect for spring and summer,
when people wind down from the rush and bustle of the holiday season and get ready to stretch out and
relax. The calming effect these colors have on the psyche helps make a fun night out seem effortless,
as well as relaxing, and can bring you and your friends feelings of serenity and joy. At the same time,
those who favor a bolder look may delight in yellows, oranges and reds that really pop out and help you
stand out from the crowd. Try it either way and you’ll be sure to find a gown that compliments the look
you want to achieve!

DON’T TOUCH THE HAIR!
When putting together a look for
a swanky evening out, many women forget to give full consideration to the other incidentals of their
appearance. When faced with a designer whose dresses pull the focus to the bust and bodice, it’s important
for women to plan their hair style and makeup in advance of their special event, particularly as this
can offer the opportunity for experimentation without the consequences of a look that doesn’t quite work
out. When gowns feature halter necks and spaghetti straps, wearing your hair down can help frame your
face and bring a feminine, “goddess” feeling to the overall appearance, while a strapless gown complimented
with hair swept into an up-do can give an incomparable air of elegance, style and grace by showing off
your shoulders, neck and arms.

and style, then check out the pieces available from Lara here at newyorkdress.com – you won’t be disappointed.
