There are as many ways to celebrate Quinceanera as there are families who
celebrate it. Each party is going to be a different occasion, with some families taking the traditional
route - a formal occasion where the church plays a role - and others choosing a more relaxed, modern
approach. This means when picking the gown or dress for your Quinceanera party, it's important to take
into account not only the way your dress looks on you, but the way it fits into the occasion you've been
looking forward to celebrating with so much eagerness!
FORMAL OR FLASHY?
dresses can be long, ball gown style affairs which play up the traditional beginnings of this custom.
If your Quinceanera party is going to be a tradition event - mom, dad, your godparents, and that special
someone taking you out on the dance floor to celebrate your coming of age, then you'll want to choose
a dress that is flattering but modest, with an air of formality about it. In this situation, you're likely
to be around a number of close family members, including older generations - so you don't want to wear
something with hems that go too high up or necklines that plunge too low! The majority of dresses and
occasions will fall into this category, especially given the traditional nature of a Quinceanera.
your Quinceanera party is going to be a laid-back occasion in a more modern setting, (maybe your family
is bigger on the party side than the religious!) a shorter dress with cute patterns and colors is entirely
appropriate. Fun, playful dresses with detailed feathers and patterns can liven up the occasion. This
is definitely not an occasion where you want to get too risque, and remember that even in informal settings,
Quinceanera is your chance to become a young lady, so make sure your dress shows you off in your best
If the site of your Quinceanera party is likely to be cold, it might be a good
idea to bring along a shawl or cute jacket, although once you're out on the dance floor shaking your
stuff, you'll be less likely to notice if the air conditioning's on full blast; still, this isn't a night
you want to worry about whether you're too hot or too cold so it's always better to be prepared.
formal or informal, when it comes to the fit you want to make sure that your Quinceanera dress gives you
room to move - after all, a big part of this occasion is the dancing and you don't want to be worried
about whether or not you can get your boogie on in a dress that doesn't give you room to breathe!
TRENDS IN Quinceanera DRESSES
This year's Quinceanera dresses are dominated by ballgown
styles and bare shoulders, with accentuated waists and for the most part, long hems that skim the floor.
A lot of dresses feature bright colors - jewel tones and primaries, with some silvers and golds as well.
Hollywood glamor gives longer gowns an air of sophistication, harking back to awards show red carpets
over the last few years. Shorter dresses with spaghetti straps (or no straps at all) accentuate your
chest and legs, and make your choice of shoe and necklace even more important.
Quinceanera dresses come in as many colors as they do shapes
and sizes - so there's bound to be a color that suits your complexion perfectly. Try on a number of colors
and see what you like best, and what your parents and friends (and that impartial shop assistant) recommend.
If a dress you like isn't available in the color you want, you might be able to have something custom
made, or find it at another retailer - just remember that to take this route you need to start looking
for your Quinceanera early on rather than leaving it to the last minute.
there are dresses available in eye-popping colors: hot pinks, lime greens, stunning blues, glittering
golds, and ethereal whites - just to name a few. A number of dresses have great contrasts - pink fabric
with black belts, blue and silver sequins on a light blue background, and beautiful lace patterns which
ACCESSORIZE YOUR DRESS
If you're looking
for a dress you can wear more than once (not a bad idea) then a relatively plain Quinceanera dress can
be made even more unique by using shoes, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and even your hair style to make
your appearance as special as can be. Now is the time to pamper yourself - go to your mom or a stylist
and get a stunning hair style that brings out a whole new grown-up look to those who know you best.
you do have a plain dress, why not try shoes with a cute pattern on them? Make sure if you decide to
wear heels you keep them low - at this age, more than an inch or so is probably not appropriate. By choosing
a solid color dress with shoes that feature a bold, complimentary pattern, you can change this signature
piece of your Quinceanera puzzle out for other occasions.
ENJOY YOUR PARTY
only happens once in a young woman's life, so enjoy it while it lasts and make some great memories with
your friends and family!
