Stay Away from Patent Leather Shoes

Even if your patent leather shoes are high-end designer shoes such as Christian Louboutin, the shiny material paired with a cheap dress might offer a look that you don’t want. If you have to wear a cheap dress, stick with basic neutral in high-end fabrics without any shine. It’s going to create the illusion of a more expensive party dress.

Consider Style

If you are going to purchase a cheap party dress, do yourself a favor and make sure it’s not one that automatically looks cheap no matter what you do. It shouldn’t be too tight, too short or too revealing. And it should never be made of polyester or rayon. Try to get other more quality-like fabric blends because they are more forgiving and look a bit more upscale.

Never Shop in the Juniors Department
