As the party season approaches it's time to start thinking about your evening outfits. There's a huge array of choices and styles available on the high street and online with outfits to suit all body shapes and budgets. But what should you choose? It really depends on the type of occasion. It could be you're going to an informal drinks party, in which case skinny jeans with a glitzy top and some statement heels will look great. Alternatively, if it's a more formal event then you can consider full-on glamour with a stunning evening gown or cocktail dress. Whatever the occasion you need your evening outfit for, it's important to remember that you should always dress to suit your body shape. Think about your best features and show them off. You can achieve this really easily with some simple tricks and clever shopping. The key is to balance out your body shape and create the perfect hourglass figure. If you're a pear shape, choose an outfit that has detailing on the top. An embellished neckline or padded shoulder will draw the eye upwards and this creates a balanced silhouette. To complement an apple shape you need to create a waistline so choose an outfit that will cinch in your waist. An easy way to achieve this is by choosing a wrap-style top or dress, or by accessorising with a wide statement belt. Whatever you decide to wear for your evening outfit the most important thing to add is your confidence. Feeling comfortable and confident in your outfit will add more sparkle than any amount of sequins.
