It’s tonsa fun shopping for glam new dresses to wear to all the holiday parties, but finding the right frock can be a tricky task. Not only are there hundreds of different stores to hit up, there are also a million different styles of dresses a girl can select. How to narrow it down? Without further ado…check out the top five questions a girl’s gotta ask herself when shopping for The Perfect Dress.
1. Are you cool with the price?
It’s so easy to flip open the pages of a magazine and fall
in love with a $500 dress (trust us, we’ve sooo been there), but that’s totally
not realistic. Before you set out to find your darling dress ask yourself how
much you’re okay with spending and browse accordingly. If you’re on a tight
budget, check all the clearance racks first for cute stuff on the cheap. If you’ve
got some Christmas cash to spend, ask to see the new arrivals for the holiday
2. Does the dress suit your bod?
Every babe has a different and equally beautiful shape, but
a dress that suits your besties may not exactly suit you. Find the perfect
dress by asking yourself if the frock you’re rocking definitely flatters your
bod and makes ya feel amazing. Only choose a dress if it sets you on fire, girl.
3. Are you loving the color?
Color is so important when it comes to shopping for a dress.
By all means, don’t buy a blue dress if you’re all about bright red. Ask
yourself the kinds of colors you love to wear and steer clear of the shades ya
loathe. Black and red are classic holiday colors, but if you’re feeling fierce,
look for hot white dresses or bold pinks, greens, purples and blues!
4. Will you wear it again?
There is zero point in buying a dress to wear once and then
banish to the black hole that is your closet. Before you lay down the green on
a frock, figure out if it’s the kinda dress you could wear to other parties in
the future. There is nothing better than a holiday dress that can make ya look
hot all season long, right?
5. Does it make you feel totally fab?
The most important question to ask yourself when shopping
for the perf holiday dress is does it make you feel like a princess? When you
step under the mistletoe with your crush or show up to a family night of
festivities in this gown will you feel like a million bucks? If the answer is
yes, you’ve got yourself a winner! There is no better feeling than the one that
comes with finding the dress that fits you best.
