Whenever there is an occasion such as a wedding, a formal event like the 2010 Academy Awards or
just a party that you plan on going to, you will want to look your best. More often than not, the method of doing so involves dressing up, and dressing up requires the dress.
From Hollywood A-List celebrities to people like you and I, strapless dresses are the perfect compromise between formal and informal. This is because a dress will give you a very stylish and dignified look but a strapless dress adds a bit of playfulness and makes you look sexier than you would in a formal dress.
Strapless dresses are best worn to advantage very simply. While you can get away with wearing opulent and ornate jewelry with formal wear, strapless dresses require plain and unfussy necklaces and earrings if these accessories are worn at all.
Some of the celebrities who have recently pulled off this look well include: Penelope Cruz, Taylor Momsen, Rachel McAdams, Mariah Carey, Charlize Theron, Cameron Diaz, Kristen Stewart, Kate Winslet and many others at the 2010 Oscars Red Carpet.
A strapless dress shows off your shoulders and neck so if these are your assets, do not take attention away with fussy ornaments. Another important thing to remember is to ensure that the dress fits well. You do not want to be forever pulling up your strapless dress because it is too loose around the bodice or have it pinching at you because it is too tight.
Always wear a strapless bra and if you feel the need for more support go for a push-up bra. The strapless dress should fit closely at the bodice but should be just loose enough to allow comfortable movement at the hips and thighs.
Suitable accessories could be a shawl for a more formal event or a cardigan or blazer for a more casual look. A word of caution though, women with wide shoulders should avoid this look as it would be unflattering and draw too much attention to your wide shoulders.
