Tips on Picking the Right Cocktail Dress for You

Sarah Geronimo during her Gensan City 2009 concert

Style experts shall say that nude colors like black or beige shall do are safe and fine but if you really want to stand out in the crowd without looking out - of - place or lost in another world, I still believe on these basic rules on cocktail dress:

  1. Pick colors that complement your skin tone. If you are pale, a contrasting like black or red can accentuate your looks;
  2. Pick styles that hide your flaws but highlight your assets; If you have a bulging tummy, highlights on the neckline can draw more attention to your upper body. 
  3. Consider your height. Long dresses for petite people will surely make them shorter.
  4. Wear complementing accessories including bags and footwear.
  5. Show confidence in what you wear. If you believe that you look good, this is actually exuded in your aura as you walk on the red carpet. This shall highlight more your cocktail dress and not the other way around.
