Flounces are something that have earned a lot of negative publicity and bad press because they are considered frivolous and even sometimes as a waste of fabric. This bad reputation has further been cemented with the way the vapid female characters in movies are shown as wearing dresses with a ridiculous amount of flounces and with a dumb personality. But do you really think flounces are all that bad? We would like to believe that nothing in fashion is absolutely bad or good, but should be judged based on the way it is used. What we are trying to say here in a circuitous way is that you can have something like a perfect flounced dress if you use this feature smartly instead of being blinded by the sheer cuteness of flounces as seen on dresses worn by cute little babies. If you do not believe that it is possible to look perfect in flounce dresses, then we give you exhibit A – gorgeous georgette dresses to get you excited. Now that we have your attention, we ask you to consider what we have to say with an open mind.
It must have become obvious to most of you now that flounces will look good as long as you are careful in the selection of the material you use for making the flounce dress. But if you are still wondering how to rock the frilly dress, then we suggest that you read on to hear what we have to say on this matter. What is more, you can look at ethereal and lovely lace skirts for that light and free feeling to further understand how well flounces can look when you want to look and feel cool.
Here are some tips and ways to look perfect in flounced dresses:
Limit the flounces: When you are designing or buying an outfit with flounces, you should keep in mind that it is very easy to go overboard. That is why you need to be very cautious and prudent when it comes to the number of flounces you add to any dress or top or skirt that you want to wear. The cuteness factor of flounces can make us forget that only on babies do too much flounces work and not on grownups. With grownups, there is a need to limit the number of flounces that you get.
Get the placement right: The placement of the flounces is a very important factor as is evidenced by the images we have posted along with this article. It is very important to ensure that you place the flounce or check the placement of the flounce to maximize the shape of your body and to enhance the femininity of your outfit. For instance, the placement of a flounce at the neckline of an off shoulder dress or top works well, but not always or for everyone when the outfit does not have an off shoulder look.
Use material that does not bulk: Another important way that you can make the wearing of the flounce perfect is being smart in the selection of the material with which the flounces are created. If you are a woman with generous curves, then it is better for you to use thinner material that has the tendency to cling rather than stand out and this arrangement would be the other way around for extremely thin women who want to add to their curves.
Create curves and hide bulges: The smartest use of flounces is in their ability to add curves where there are none or are scant and to hide any bulges in their figure that women feel conscious about being displayed.
There is no denying that one should not go rampant when it comes wearing flounces and that caution and good taste play a huge role in ensuring that the flounced outfit looks good on you. But when done right, they are reminiscent of a fresh and cool feeling that some who are fanciful may liken to a drink of mint julep in the hot summer afternoons and evenings.
