Fashion/Style: Update your wardrobe with a dinner dress

Just like other attire, your choice for a dinner outfit can either enhance or spoil your looks. In other words, a dinner dress is not a dress unless it’s the right dress. The right dinner dress complements your body structure and brings a sense of balance on your appearance. It also makes the body appear lifted and brightens your complexion.

Just like other attire, your choice for a dinner outfit can either enhance or spoil your looks. In other words, a dinner dress is not a dress unless it’s the right dress.

The right dinner dress complements your body structure and brings a sense of balance on your appearance. It also makes the body appear lifted and brightens your complexion.

What’s more, it gives you a flattering body. In fact, some people will not only notice the dress, but also how great you look wearing it!

The first step is to choose the style of dress you want. Open back, short sleeved, mini, or tight and long. It is a bit tricky when it comes to getting the right dress for different body sizes, but the easiest way to go about it is trying out the outfit.

This is important since you will get a variety to choose from, so as to get one that fits your size, the colour that you want and design that suits you best. While at it, do not forget that bright, floral and light colours are ideal at night.

A well fitting open dinner dress with a stylish shawl might also do you wonders! Matched with trendy shoes will complete the outfit! And if you want to be very striking then you can consider a hipslip or minimiser under tight pieces.

Evening attire is part of the general category of a semi-formal type of outfit worn from the afternoon until early evening, or on a romantic date.

Have you ever been invited to a casual dinner party, or formal event? Trust us, choosing the right outfit to suit the occasion can sometimes be a nightmare. But there are many ways to get it right.

“Wear almost any kind of pants if you are a man, except sweats,” says David Habimana, a fashionista. “A nice pair of dark wash jeans is an acceptable choice.” He emphasises that the principle key to get the fashion right is knowing how to match the attire according to the occasion.

“A button down dress shirt is a great choice with the jeans but can dress up chinos. A trendy polo shirt is probably a bit too casual with jeans, but perfect with cool canvass shoes.”

Dinner or party dress calls for a happy look. Also consider make-up. It can rely on a palette of evening colours, but if you play up the eyes, leave the lips nearly natural, or pair red lipstick with very subtle eye make up.

Sarah Umurerwa, 25, a fashion boutique assistant, says for ladies a tight flowery dress or skirt with wedge sandals works well.

“Jeans are great with stiletto heels and a dressy top, but these accessories are too formal if you’re wearing a pencil skirt,” says Umurerwa.

If it’s a special evening out for you, that special moment in a life time deserves the perfect evening wear for you. It is absolutely very important for you to look elegant, stylish and cool. And with the right selection of clothes, accessories and make up, it is the easiest thing to do.

Colours and fashion:

Pink teamed with black is a great combination. If that does not correspond with your skin tone, then try out colours like lime, orange, lemon and raspberry.

For a perfect evening look, closed-toe pumps will do wonders! Match them with a well-designed dress and tasteful jewellery to flatter your looks.

Straight cut pants are in now, and most Kigalian teenagers have already embraced the trend. These trendy pants are elegant and can go from corporate to evening. Pair them with the brightest tops and sling back sandals for the evening.

If you are planning for an evening date, drop that massive handbag to a smaller one that can only carry your mobile phone and some make-up.

Being an active woman or man is not just about exercising, but also going out and being a part of life. Breaking up your routine with something like a great meal at a fine restaurant or going out to a dance club, may just be the ticket to feeling better, and that contributes to a healthy lifestyle.
