Another thing you should do is to add a few finishing touches to the dress. Add a simple clutch that is not very shiny or colorful. As for the jewelries, try not to carry a lot, a simple pair of earrings will do the job perfectly. Your makeup should be also not very strong, you can match it with the color of your dress, or simply wear a “no makeup” makeup and you will be stunning.

This color will look great on every skin complexion, it does not matter you are fair or darker, you will definitely stand out from all the other girls that have decided to wear long, tight, black dresses. Researches show that if you wear yellow you will feel happier because yellow has an uplifting effect, just what you need on the best day of your life.

Black & White

Take an example of some of the celebrities that have already walked the red carpet wearing such dresses. If you are a fan of the long dresses, you could wear a graphic shape dress, with white base and black shapes. Chose one that is a little tighter. Finish your look with a pair of long earrings and tie your hair up in a loose bun and you will look stunning.
