Special Occasion Dresses

Do you have a special occasion just around the corner? We beg you to step away from the racks and become familiar with NewYorkDress.

We know what every woman wants in a dress. Women want to feel like all eyes are on them. The perfect special occasion dress should command all eyes on you and make for an unforgettable event. Think of sweetheart necklines, luscious ruffles, rhinestone embossed corsets, lace, beaded, mermaid cuts and play around with the possibilities. Every woman is different and our dresses are selected for all types of women.

Think of the special occasion. Is it a wedding, birthday bash, Sweet Sixteen, anniversary or graduation? What do you want your dress to do for you? When choosing between special occasion dresses, you need to think about the event to which you are going. Do you want to look professional and put-together or do you want to look fun and flirty?

Choose a dress that fits your body perfectly. Not all cuts will flatter your body so it’s always important for you to keep in mind what cuts make you look and feel amazing. Not only should the dress look good, it should also be comfortable and enable you to move around in it. Here are some quick tips: If you have a pear-shaped body, you may want to go with a dress that is form-fitting on the top and loose fitting on the bottom. If you have an hourglass shape, you may want to highlight your curves with a form-fitted frock. If you love your legs, you may want to go with a short dress, and if you like your arms, you may want to go with a longer dress that is sleeveless.

Let’s think about sleeves and straps. The straps of the dress will affect everything from the frock's shape to its neckline. Thus, you need to think about whether or not you want to show your arms and back and how much of each you want to show. A perfect special occasion dress should highlight all your assets and downplay any problem areas.

Do not underestimate your neckline dear. Showcasing your neckline can change the entire look. Think v neck, strapless, cowl neck, sweetheart neckline, strapless, one shoulder, spaghetti strap to make the most of your demure neckline.

Do you want to go long or short? Do you want to highlight your legs? Perhaps your back? If you opt for a long and flowing dress, make sure that you’re able to walk in it. Make sure that it is not constricting on the bottom. If your special occasion is a wedding, opt for a shorter hemline as it allows for an entire night of dancing. Pair your dress with the perfect accessories and you can’t go wrong. If you want the best of both worlds, you a hi-lo dress is the perfect option.

What fabric do you want your dress to be made out of? Keep in mind the weather during the special occasion. Will it be warm weather in which polyester might be a little too stuffy for? Keep your body in mind as well. It’s key to know what fabrics work best with your body type. Think back on what fabrics you tend to stray away from and which ones you flock to when you’re shopping for a dress.
