Puttin' On the Glitz

Consider your body type. These aren't wallflower looks, so choose a silhouette that really flatters. In general, A-line styles are fantastic for pear shapes, while V-necklines (as opposed to higher cutouts) complement bustier types. Wear knee length or midi if you're tall; petites can get away with shorter hemlines.

Get bold with your accessories. Go for pieces that are as eye-catching as your dress—for instance, a whimsical clutch or ornate necklaces.
