Buying women's cocktail dresses and party dresses can be daunting. Now you don’t even have to leave your house to get a great dress. The Internet has tons of dresses available from all the latest designers. Consider the following advice when shopping online for a dress.


What’s the Occasion?

You want to consider how formal the occasion is before you select a party dress. If the occasion is ultra formal you will want to buy a gown that is floor length. Knee-legnth dresses are acceptable for semi-formal events.


Dress Color

You want to pick a dress color that blends well with your skin tone. Warm-tone people look best in earth tones like yellow, red, and brown. People with a cool complexion look best in blue, green and purple.


Dress Style

Your body shape dictates the dress style that will look best on you. If you are pear shaped you will look best in an A-line dress. Draw attention away from your lower half by selecting a neckline that gets people looking up. Consider a boat neck, square neck or cowl neck dress. If you have a wedge body style your waist is narrower than your shoulders. This body shape looks best in an empire waist dress. Rectangle body types have similar size shoulders and waists. You will want to create the illusion of curves. Do this by wearing  scoop necks and sweetheart necklines. Apple shape people will want to avoid prints and balance the figure. This can be done with belted gowns and v-neck styles. Empire waist gowns also look good on apple shapes. Hourglass figures want to look for dresses that are not too tight or loose. Hourglass figures look best in aline and wrap styles.
