How long is a long dress?
We have talked about dresses and the beauty that each figure looks like, the ability they have to stylize figures, and how well they look when worn correctly. However, in the case of the long dress, we know little about what is the appropriate length for each event. Today, I would like to clarify this question.
Long midi dresses.
There is a piece well below the knee and should reach mid-leg, a few inches above the ankles. It is used for evening or night events. It is elegant and elevates the formality of our outfit. I recommend using it with simple designs and some details to highlight your personality.
The long dress must always be below the ankle or flush. The usual thing is to get it down to the ground, covering the entire foot. However, it is increasingly common to find it up to the ankle, leaving it open. They can be worn for a late-night or gala.
The long dress is considered a top-label garment and is characterized by its quality and elegance. They look good in any color but white if we are going to a wedding or a day event.
How should you wear a long dress?
Since long dresses came into our lives again, they did so with the sole objective of staying, becoming an interesting alternative to take anywhere.
Now, there are some rules to know before putting on your dress.
So stay with us and keep reading to know them.
Color helps you style.
Monochrome dresses are perfect to stylize the figure, either during the day or at night. They also help you create casual and sometimes daring looks, depending on how you combine them.
It will not be the same for the day as for the night.
You have to know how to differentiate that each event requires a different garment. So if you wear long evening dresses, these should be more striking with heavy fabrics that adapt to your body. While for the day, you can opt for more fluid garments.
If you are plump, V-neckline.
A low V-neckline is ideal for curvy women. You can also choose one that has sleeves to hide the rolls on the arms.
How to wear a long dress if you are short?
For short women, those silhouettes are perfect where the neckline falls below the bust line and the cut fits perfectly to the central area and shoulders.
So it is important to find clothes that stylize the figure and by themselves achieve an incredible outfit full of harmony. Do you want to know more? Keep reading!
If you are short, combine it with heels.
A long dress, depending on its design, will not always look good with slippers or sandals. The exception is that the length reaches the ankle and is worn for the day.
Not only are they representative of the 90s, but they have also been considered the main alternative for women who want to define their silhouette and lengthen it. Keep in mind that the cut should widen your waist and be chromatic.
Asymmetrical dresses alone manage expand the silhouette of short women. Now, I recommend that you avoid round-toe shoes. Instead, wear ballet flats or pointy heels.
I recommend dresses that are fluid and monochrome. As a complement, you can use pointed boots of the same color as the dress to visually lengthen your silhouette.
In our store, we have a spectacular long and loose green dress made with completely sustainable cotton, which can be transformed into a low-cut dress in a single movement. In addition, the elastic at the waist will help you define the silhouette. Would you like to know what it is?
