Selecting a Special Party Dress is a pleasurable dilemma that most of us enjoy indulging in. They say comfort is the new buzzword in fashion. But keep in mind that selecting your attire totally depends on the type of event you are booked for.

Go bold, bright, seductive and exotic – loud colors are always well received in New Year parties. Red is the color of the end of the season festivities. But you could also glam up like glitterati with molten metallics. For understated elegance, you can never go wrong with black.

Even if you are more comfortable in casuals, remember that torn jeans and flip-flops may restrict your entries to parties and restaurant that abide by specific dress codes. You don’t want to go overboard either to avoid being the odd one out. Subtle sophistication will take you places and even turn heads. And if you plan to dance, make sure to be in comfortable shoes to avoid blisters and aches later.

For a day out, nothing oozes femininity more than a sun-dress or a flowy skirt for women. For more formal events, shun the gown and go for some Bollywood style glam in sizzling sarees – even Hollywood is taking to it for ceremonial evenings. A bright clutch or an attractive hair accessory or cleverly selected chic jewelry would complete the package. For men business casuals would make a firm statement almost anywhere, unless you are attending a black-tie event that requires absolute formals.

We all want to wow with our dress and stun friends with accessories. The trick is to set your mood that then pick up from there to create the perfect outfit to be a show-stopper.
