Just want to share this with you important tips in finding the ideal dress for you.

1. Decide on Formality

Usually the event invitation will clue you into the formality of the event, whether it's casual or black tie.

While some fabrics are year-round -- silk, brocade, organza, jersey -- fabrics like velvet and gold spangles are best reserved for winter holidays.

2. Flatter Your Figure

The most important feature of your new dress is how well it flatters you.

Remember that darker colors and simple cuts (a sheath, an A-line) are the most flattering.

Show off your best feature. If you have gorgeous eyes, then play them up with beautiful makeup, off-the-face hair and jeweled earrings in a complimentary shade.

3. Choose a Color

You could just wear a little black dress (classy, flattering and slenderizing), but why not explore some of the other dressy options?

Red, bold prints, even gold are dramatic enough for evening wear. Pastels, mid-range bright and soft prints look great for dressy day occasions.

4. Pick a Style

Catalogs, the internet and magazines are great places to seek dresses for special occasion.

Instead of going with something trendy, try to find a dress that reflects classic and timeless elegance. Remember that you'll have to look at photos of you in the dress for years to come. Classic special occasion dresses are often deceptively simple, but they usually let the beauty of the wearer shine through. A few examples are: the little black dress (a.k.a the cocktail dress), a goddess gown (draped and roughed), a ball gown, a slip dress.

5. Shop

Set a budget before shopping. Special occasion dresses usually cost more than $100, but if you visit comparison shop you can find one that works within your price range.

When shopping online, make sure you understand both the size (know your measurements and check against a size chart on the site) and the return policy (some stores don't take returns on dresses.)

6. Accessorize

The trimmings will take their cue from the dress, but for special occasions your jewelry usually gets bigger and your bag and shoes get smaller (as in strappy sandals).

Although you may want to add tons of glitz, remember that you can kill a look with too much accessories. Find earrings, necklace and bracelet that compliment each other without being a matching set.

If your legs aren't perfect enough to go bare need camouflage and you don't like to wear leg makeup, and then opt for super-sheer hose or fishnets.

Hope these help!
