Why wear a purple dress?

Dark purple is considered a slimming color for women’s dresses. This means form-fitting purple dresses can have purple’s vibrancy with some of the shaping qualities of black dresses. Love of purple is considered universal across all age groups and cultures of the world. Purple’s association with royalty makes it an obvious choice for formal dresses. Purple is also associated with ambition and creativity, which makes it an excellent choice for casual and party dresses as well. It is generally regarded as compatible with all eye colors and skin shades. It blends well with lighter colors to make way for more dynamic dress patterns and styles. It’s a color which fashion experts say there is no wrong way to wear.

What seasons are purple dresses associated with?

Although purple is mostly neutral for seasons, it can become increasingly popular in the autumn months. So, although purple is a great color for a homecoming dress, it is also a popular choice for prom gowns. The season will not stunt dress offerings in terms of sleeveless styles, other sleeve lengths, or options for floral or lace detailing. Many styles of dress come short sleeve but are associated with a wrap if you want a longer sleeve for that style. Lace dresses are also popular in the fall and with fall colors.

How do I know my dress size?

Many women’s and misss sizes are available. It is important to remember that dress sizes will vary between brands and regions. Plus size dresses may be characterized as smaller or larger sizes for dresses made in different parts of the world. Also, keep in mind that slip-on dresses will be made of more malleable fabrics, which makes size a bit more flexible. Stiffer fabrics, lace dresses, and some with sleeves that are full length will have exceptionally less flexibility with size. Most brands will have size charts or guides for selecting the right size of dress for your specific figure. Plus size dresses may be designed slightly differently from other dresses and gowns. Also, when checking the size charts for dresses and gowns, make a note of the sleeve and skirt length to match your height. Some dresses may also be designed to lace up in the back to be more form-fitting, so it helps to check back and side photos while shopping for any size dress.
