What Style Is Right For You

Selecting formal attire can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn't have to be. First think about the occasion. How do you want to present yourself? Do you want to look mature and sophisticated or would you prefer to be seen as sassy and sexy?

Your selection also depends on the occasion.

Perhaps you have a dance or ball you are planning to attend. Do you plan to dance the night away or spending the evening enjoying the festivities from your seat? Will you need something a little loose that's going to float across the dance floor?

Are you about to be a mother of the bride or groom? Your son or daughter's wedding will probably be one of the most important days of your life. You want to be comfortable but also take the bride and grooms opinion into consideration. They may have a certain color or style they would like you to consider for their wedding.

What is age appropriate? Everyone has a different opinion about what a woman should or shouldn't wear. It is really up to you. What is your comfort level? You want to show off your best features at any age. That may be your beautiful face or the perfectly toned arms you worked for in the gym. 50 is a number and nothing more. Find something that makes you feel beautiful and confident.

How do you choose an evening gown? Long formal dresses can be very uncomfortable. You want to make sure that your dress fits properly and that it shows off your best features.

Brides, if you are selecting a dress for your mom or mother in law don’t forget to choose a dress they would love. I remember the dress my mother wore for my aunts wedding. It was a sleeveless off the shoulder gown. I don’t think I have ever seen my mom more uncomfortable. She sat in her chair most of the evening because she thought her dress was too revealing.

The racks may be lined with strapless and short sleeve gowns but you don't have to settle for being uncomfortable. A bolero or a jacket is a great option if you prefer more coverage.

You can purchase a two piece outfit or you can purchase one separately. Sheer and lace boleros are great options because you can wear them again and they add an extra bit of elegance to any gown.

      No I thought your presentation was confusing, interrupted by too many ads and overall informative.

      I was looking forward to your pintrest pin but very disappointed!

      These are really cute even if you're under 50. I love dresses that make you look classy, and these dresses do that really well!

      A good long dress, whether formal or casual is essential in a lady's wardrobe.

      The pink one with the jacket is so me. It's a little like the one I got to wear on 8/3 for a charity ball and book signing I attended. I also love the teal Zeilei one and the Lady Bridal in blue. I love wearing evening dress and hope I get the chance to wear it again. Though, I have been invited back to next year's ball to do another book signing, so here's hoping.

      I am over 50 and you have a nice selection of dresses for a party! I think the long, burgundy dress with the chiffon and sequin overlay is stunning!
