Your Grade 11 dance is the perfect time to step out and have fun!! Here are some tips in choosing your Grade 11 dance dress …
Most grade 11 dances are short dresses but some are long, whatever length you decide to go with try keep it fun, elegant and sophisticated.
This is the dance to bring out your wild child whilst your matric dance is the dance to shine into adulthood.
So what tips can we give you in picking your dress:
Choose your length
This should be relevant to requirements of school, your body type and theme of dance.
Choose your style
– A fitted dress
– A fit and flare
– Elegant shift
Do not buy your matric dance dress
Always get a grade 11 dance dress that is a bit more simple or less detail than your matric dance dress. The grade 11 dance is not your show stopper dress. Its like an appetizer. This dance says “if I look so good now when I’m simple imagine me next year.” and then it keeps people anticipated. This dance is notthe main course. Many girls go all out for this one and land up disappointed the next year, which is the most important dance. Even if you do long that’s perfect but keep it simple.
When choosing accessories go with the golden rule: “busy dress, simple jewelry. Plain dress busy jewelry”For example if you decide to wear a short sequenced shift dress, you would want to keep your jewelry more simple, so you could do your hair in an upstyle and have stunning make-up. Finish this look with gorgeous earrings. Where as if you choose a plain bodycon you would need to brighten up your look with a statement necklace and earrings.
Hair and make-up
When choosing your hairstyle, once again do not try out do your matric dance! It should be stunning but not the main show. If you have a lower back or beautiful detail around the neck area hair to the side or up but if you have a more plain simple dress, try soft flowy waves with an elegant hair piece.
Your make up is of course very important, the main tip is DO NOT PLASTER IT ON. Simple and non fussy is always better, again keep your dream look for your matric dance.
