Choosing a pageant dress breakdown: How to succeed in finding the right evening gown for your next upcoming event explained.
A pageant is a great opportunity to have fun, but also to place yourself in the best possible light. However, one of the most difficult thing to do before the event takes place is to plan your outfit. And the fact that there is a huge range of pageant dresses can be both a blessing and a curse: you have lots of options to choose from, but it’s so hard to pick just one! Here is a brief guide step by step to make this process easier:
Jot everything down, from your own style preferences, what you want and what you don’t want, your resources (time, money), size, places to go. As soon as you have a plan, you will be able to organize yourself better and you will eliminate any occasion to waste time.
Have realistic standards.
We know you want to look like a princess from fairytales, but is that appropriate? Try on that dress you fell in love with and see if it fits your body type. Check your wallet before jumping in to buy a dress they just brought it. Also add the budget for other things: adjustments to the dress, jewelry, shoes, a clutch.
Do some style research.
There are thousands of types of evening gowns, which means you have to do a strong research in order to find something truly unique and exquisite. Don’t be afraid to check out lots of sources of inspiration: your favorite actresses, specific magazines, articles on tips and tricks, catalogues, famous events etc. Then, cut out what wouldn’t fit your body type. Cut out the colors you don’t like or don’t fit you as well, and then you have a restrained area.
Practice with the dress on.
Once a week, after you bought the dress, supposing that you have allowed enough time before the event, you should practice walking in it. Make sure the environment where you take it for a walk is clean and flat surfaced, so as to prevent any accidents. Check if there is anything you should pay special attention to: a long train, a very short or floating skirt or any other thing that might impede your walk or cause you problems. It is important to practice walking in the high heel shoes too, so as to have a graceful walk, not a tormented one.
Adjust the dress.
If you try it on from time to time, you may notice that the dress looks different on you. Don’t be afraid to do the required adjustments, so that you can have the best looking dress around that matches your body perfectly!
