Canadian Glam

Nathalie, 39

If you’re afraid of gowns covered in pattern and sequins, try wearing one that shows a little pattern or sequins. This makes the gown different than others, and also shows your willingness to try something new. Looking for a gown with a slit will ensure you’re comfortable throughout the night since having one makes it easier to sit for long periods of time.

A little black dress is always practical, but choosing one that is different and edgier will help you to stand out. Experimenting with different silhouettes such as a halter, or cut-outs will bring the classic little black dress to a whole new level of glamour.

Daniela, 38
Combining sequins with a short silhouette is the ultimate way to look glamorous without wearing a long, flowing gown. Another alternative to the typical evening gown is to have short sleeves, which is flattering to a woman’s arms. To highlight your legs, pair the gown with a sparkly pair of pumps.
