Warmer weather has arrived and that means that chances are you will be going on vacation, attending weddings, picnics, and family gatherings in the near future. While these events are often fun and exciting as you get to reconnect with friends and family, the idea of finding something to wear is daunting and dreadful. After hibernating all winter and staying indoors to keep warm, chances are high that you may have gained a little bit of weight. This makes finding clothes all the more troublesome. With the help of this article and the Dress Guide from The Freedom State , you will have plenty of fashionable ideas at your fingertips.

  1. Type of event. If you are attending a picnic with family, you should choose a lightweight, colorful sundress. If you are going to a wedding, consider wearing a dress that is floor length and dressier than a sundress. The first thing to do when trying to decide what you will wear to an event is to identify the type of event you are attending. If you are attending a casual event, your dress should also mimic that. The same goes for a fancier affair or trip to the beach. There are types of dresses for any occasion.
  2. Budget. No matter what type of event you are attending, it is important to identify how much you are able to spend on your attire before you head out to the mall to go shopping. The worst is taking the effort to travel to a dress shop, try on dresses, fall in love with one, to then get to the register to find out that it is out of your price range. Save yourself the hassle and disappointment by solidifying a budget before you begin shopping. Also keep in mind that you may have to purchase accessories, shoes, pantyhose, and other items. Be sure to factor all of this into your budget so that you do not spend all of your money on the dress and then not have anything left over for the other accessories.
  3. Color. Choosing a color is important as it can draw excess attention to you depending on the type of event. Not to mention that certain colors are culturally more appropriate to wear to events compared to others. For example, it is not considered good etiquette to wear white to a wedding or wear bright colors to a funeral. Wearing white to a wedding is thought to take away from the bride which is a big “no, no.” Wearing bright, cheerful colors to a funeral when the atmosphere is most likely one that is glum, is also a bad idea. Dark colors are more acceptable for such an occasion.

When deciding what dress you will wear to your next event, consider the type of event as well as the appropriate color before starting to shop. It is also a great idea to have a budget in mind so that you do not fall in love with something that is out of your price range. Keep these tips in mind when shopping for your next dress.
