Sporty party dresses are high on the comfort factor
Parties are all about fun, food, friends and laughter, and what better way to amplify all this joy, than with a sporty style party dress? High on the comfort factor and bright with fun colors, these dresses have become runway hits, and have been worn with panache by some of the world’s most influential fashion icons. From US First Lady Michelle Obama, who enjoys channeling her budget-friendly ensembles, to Kate Middleton, who matches her sporty style dresses to dainty ballerina shoes, to pop stars like Selena Gomez and Rihanna who wear their sporty party dresses to high profile events, often accessorized with statement head and neck pieces.
Sporty party dresses are highest on their comfort factor; this makes them suitable for a variety of body shapes and sizes. Those on the thinner side of the scale could accentuate their silhouettes by wearing halter style dresses, which will highlight their long arms. Shorter dresses will highlight long legs, and can easily be accessorized with party sandals such as Roman style tie-up sandals. For formal events, a pretty pair of matching kitten heels will look elegant without dampening the light, sporty element of the dress.
For those on the curvier side of the scale, it is ideal to follow the V-neck policy; V-necks serve to lengthen the neck while accentuating the bust area, and a slightly ruched or cinched waist will provide an hourglass element to the look. Some t-shirt style sporty dresses come with belts, which accentuate the waist, and this same trick could be followed with a sporty style dress. If channeling the “tennis player” style of sporty fashion, one could always tie a light cardigan around the waist or drape it around the shoulders for that sporty, yet classy feel.
A majority of branded sporty party dresses contain Lycra, Spandex, and other stretchy material, which is great for non-humid weather, could get uncomfortable in humid climates. Obtaining a few sporty party dresses in cotton, therefore, would be advisable for those who like staying cool and comfortable in sticky weather. On the other hand, for evening parties or cooler climates, a fitting sporty style party dress could be the perfect outfit!
