Glamorous to the max

A long dress always looks glam and it’s is just one of those trends that never really goes away. When choosing a matric dance dress, it’s important to make sure your shoes go well with your dress.

High heels look elegant with a longer dress, but getting the dress tailored to avoid accidents is a great idea. Once your online order arrives, you may need to get it tailored to the perfect length (so you avoid any accidents caused by tripping on your hem). Take your shoes with you when the dress is being tailored to make sure you get the length just right.

So you’re looking for a dress that’s more fun than glamourous?  A shorter dress in a flattering and comfortable shape can have you dancing through the night with no problems, and you won’t have to worry about wearing shapewear or your dress dragging on the floor if you decide to kick off your shoes.

Seeing red

Songs have been written about the lady in red and we all know that wearing red is the best way to become the centre of attention. A red matric dance dress is a brave choice because the eye is naturally drawn to the colour and all eyes will be on you. If this is the dress you want everyone to remember you in, make it red.
