What are some things I should consider when choosing sweet 16 dresses?

Sweet 16 Dresses

Any dressy party is the perfect excuse for buying a glamorous new gown, but sweet 16 dresses are especially important. A sweet 16 is such a big milestone in a girl's life. Also, the dress will probably be carefully stored with dresses that she has worn for other important events for many decades to come, so it should be a dress she will still love 50 years later.

As you look at the many options for sweet 16 dresses, there are a few things you should keep in mind. To find just the right one, you should:

  • Look for a style that is youthful, but tasteful. Super short or skintight gowns with plunging necklines will usually seem too mature for a 16-year-old girl.
  • Consider how easy it would be to wear the dress, or at least part of the entire outfit, again. Some dresses can be worn as strapless gowns one time and as gowns with modest sleeves the next. Shoes in a neutral color can be worn over and over again.
  • Think about your daughter's likes and dislikes. Ultimately, the party is all about her and you wouldn't want her to feel uncomfortable or unattractive on her special day.
