Cocktail dresses are classically found in black, white and silver, so if you are thinking of orange I hope you want to stand out from the crowd. Do you want to know whether an Orange Cocktail Dress will suit your personality, skin type and body shape? To wear orange you will want to have a confident personality that is more than happy to show off your independent style. You will look dazzling and be sure to draw attention.
You will not be stuck for choice as there are many orange cocktail dresses available to choose from. The range includes varying shades of orange moving between the yellow and red color spectrums. Orange dresses will not suit everyone. Consider your hair and skin color before braving this stand out choice. To pull off the look you will need to have very fair skin, such as creamy white or peach. It will also look best if you have straw colored or strawberry red hair with green or blue eyes. Alternatively girls with golden skin tones and red hair or brown eyed brunettes will also accentuate the look.
As with all cocktail dresses there are thousands of styles available to you. These range from elegant ball gowns to short cocktail dresses. Two aspects of a dress that you will want to consider are: Dress length – options include above the knee, knee length, mid calf and full length. For prom dresses full length is the most common, but as you are the more adventurous type going for orange, a shorter style may suit you best or perhaps a full length combined with a thigh high split. Sleeve style – options include sleeveless, strapless, spaghetti strap, halter and one shoulder. Sleeveless and strapless are the most popular although you will want to bear in mind how comfortable you are with your arms and shoulders before deciding. As well as your prom dress you will also need to decide which accessories you need. Orange accessories, such as opera length satin gloves, satin evening bags, and shawls/wraps can all be found. So if you want to be center of attention, go for it in an orange cocktail dress. Just make sure you have the right skin and hair color to pull it off.
