You finally got an invitation to the hottest party of the season, you are going to rub shoulders with crème de la crème but you have nothing to wear!

Searching for that perfect party dress can be stressful. It is very rare that a woman gets it absolutely right and picks a formal dress that truly makes her stand out from the crowd no matter where she goes.

When searching for a party dresses, take the following things into consideration to ensure that you are a knockout at any event. Comfort is perhaps the most important thing to consider. Even the most beautiful dress in the world will not be worth wearing, if it causes you a lot of discomfort.

Always consider the occasion. How formal is the gathering you are attending? If you are attending an expensive dinner party, you should stick with a more conventional cut and avoid a dress that falls above the knees. For more informal parties, fashionable cuts that show a bit more skin are perfectly acceptable but should remain tasteful. A cocktail party dress in a conservative style works well for both.

Find the perfect colour. Consider what colours accent your best features. You can also ask your friends and family which colour you look best in. When it comes to your body type, wear a dress that accentuates your best assets and hides your weaknesses.

Avoid Sweater and knit fabrics, as these can cling to your body and make you look bigger than you are, depending on the style. These can also make the dress look more casual and are not appropriate for formal party dresses.

Also consider the fabric. While a dress might be cheap and in a cut and colour that you like, a low-quality fabric is always noticeable. Spend the extra cash to buy quality materials, and your party dress will look nicer on your body and to the judicious eye.
