How to Choose the Perfect Evening Dresses For Your Wife

  • Do you want to treat your wife or girlfriend to a stunning evening dress but don't know where to start? Buying clothes for women is never easy, but think of the brownie points you would get if you could pull it off. Think of it as a project that needs careful planning and consideration. Follow the points below and you might just get it right!

    Ladies evening dresses are gowns that they wear for formal functions or semi-formal events and parties. They are less over the top than ball gowns and are usually full length and have a flowing style. Short evening dresses are becoming more popular, unless your event is very formal, as they are fun and flirty, but staying with the classic look is a safer bet.

    Don't ask your significant other or she'll know you're up to something. Look in her wardrobe at something she's worn recently and you know fits well.


    Unless you want to spend weeks on this little project you need a quick way to narrow down the vast range of styles available.


    You cannot really go wrong with black, but if your wife will want to stand out from the crowd, you can be a little bolder with red or white. Black is typically a winter color but you can also opt for other dark colors such as burgundy. If you are looking to branch out into other colors, consider your wife's skin tone.

    Plus size women

    If you are buying for a slightly larger lady, you will be wanting a moderately fitted dress that makes her look slimmer and taller. Avoid stretchy fabrics and stick with dark colors. Go for A-line evening dresses for ladies to hide big thighs or empire waist dresses to downplay large tummies and thighs.
