How To Choose The Best ASOS Dresses for Party?
The first factor to consider is the formality of the occasion and whether it has a dress code. While women usually have more flexibility while choosing outfits than men, some basic rules determine a party dress’ formality. These indicators are fabric, length, and color. For instance, anything sequinned, maxi length, or in darker hues such as black, wine, navy, and such can be considered formal. When it comes to casual parties such as cocktails, then you can wear knee-length dresses too.

Color and fabric
Colors also play a role in telling whether a dress is a party dress or not. Usually, solid colors are better suited for parties, while prints are casual. Darker colors are generally preferred for parties, but neutral hues such as grey and white can also pass for party wear. Also, you need to pay attention to the fabric. Fabrics such as cotton, denim, etc., aren’t considered party dresses and are casual. For party dresses, it’s best to stick with lace, satin, silk, or even sequinned fabric.
Dressing for your body shape
The five basic body shapes, namely hourglass, apple, rectangle, inverted triangle, and pear, determine which style of dresses best complement your figure. Women with pear-shaped bodies should go for A-line dresses, while those with inverted triangle bodies look best in high-waisted dresses. Think empire waist dresses and full skirts with bright-bottomed designs. Those with rectangular bodies should stick to sweetheart and scoop neck dresses with ruffles and ruching. Apple-shaped bodies look their best in solid-colored dresses with V-necks and empire waists. Finally, those with hourglass figures look great in A-line, high waist, and wrap dresses.
Versatility and accessories
Versatility and accessories are two crucial factors that balance out a party dress. For instance, a little black dress, a.k.a. an LBD, is worth paying more because of its extreme versatility. Bright red dresses, on the other hand, are instantly memorable and hard to repeat. You can accessorize neutral colors in different ways to make different outfits.
Besides a dress, you need to focus on a purse, jewelry, and shoes, too, as they complete your ensemble. Sequinned dresses, for instance, require very less accessorizing. However, minimalist dresses can be upped on the oomph factor with statement necklaces and earrings. And, of course, heels are always a major draw.
Which color makes you look slimmer?
Black is one color that never fails to make you look elegant and slim. Other darker shades such as violet, plum, wine, and navy can also help create a slimming illusion and help hide flaws. On the other hand, lighter colors tend to add weight and give the illusion of a larger body.
How do ASOS dresses fit?
Usually, ASOS dresses, especially those from ASOS Design, run slightly larger than other retailers. However, you’re generally okay if you stick with your usual size.
How do I find my style on ASOS?
On the ASOS app, you can see the Style Match tool right within the search bar itself. So, either your phone’s photo reel automatically pops up at the bottom, or you could search with keywords.
