I put this at no. 1 position because most of us have a set budget in mind, when we are buying a dress, Right? We know how much we should be spending and obviously, there are more factors that might alter this one!
What are you dressing up for?
For formal events that have a special dress code or are more formal in nature, such as a charity ball or a banquet, consider a full-length gown or a full-length dress and prefer less skin show to maintain the modesty of the event if possible.
More casual events such as award ceremonies or a night at the opera do require a flowing feminine outfit or a knee-length evening cocktail dress.
For everyday occasions, you can’t go wrong with a knee-length dress, a maxi dress, or a multi-purpose dress. For those occasions, you can also vary the length – anything from a form-fitting mini dress to a long and flowing dress goes.

Needless to say that you should try on any dress that you plan on purchasing. But remember, if you like to ditch the conventional shopping methods (like myself) and are buying your dress through your favorite website, make sure to opt for the website that has good reviews and also that has a size chart. The size chart is a must in online shopping it gives you an indication of what size you should order. Taking your own measurements will help you understand your body so you order just what you need and avoid the return process (review that return policy in advance when buying a dress).
It doesn’t matter how beautiful a dress is if you don’t like its colour then there is no point in going ahead with it and making that investment.
Your natural skin tone plays a crucial role in determining the right color for your dress. If your skin has a blue undertone, opt for greys, white, black and jewel tones. If, on the other hand, your skin color has a warmer tone, opt for reds, oranges, yellows, and browns.
Keep in mind that you can’t go wrong with traditional colors like black, white, grey or navy blue as those seem to go well no matter your skin tone.
