Would you be celebrating your 15th birthday soon? Are you worried what to wear on your special day before all the invitee? The first thing I’ll advise you is “stop worrying”. The sooner you stop thinking negatively; your confidence level would build up gradually and help you to take practical decisions. Especially, when it’s going to be a precious event of your life, where you need to look your best and walk, talk or smile with confidence, a bad choice of dress could be a real spoiler! You might say – “I’m confused with so many dress options to pick from”. And, you’re right, today there’s a bevy of gorgeous dresses available for youngsters to wear on their fifteenth birthday. But then, nothing beats classic quinceanera gown dresses!
The Growing Trend of Quinceanera Dresses
There was a time when wearing Quinceanera dresses were limited to Latin American family culture. But now time has changed, and with it a wide acceptance level has crept into the mainstream American culture, so much so that today majority of the youngsters prefer to wear quinceanera dresses on their ‘coming-of-age’ birthday celebrations. In a word, it has become a trend among girls in the US to wear traditional quinceanera gown dresses on their fifteenth birthdays.
With its growing demand, fashion houses and designers are creating amazing patterns and designs on traditional quinceanera dresses. Today fashion mags also devote entire sections to feature quinceanera and bridesmaid dress trends. That’s enough to make you confused! Hence, the way to choose the best dress for your special occasion requires considerable research, practical thinking and a whole lot of planning.
In this connection let me offer you three advices. Those mentioned below are all from my first-hand experience and those that I have gained over the years working in the fashion and clothing industry. Here they are –
- Do not fully go by what you see and read online – If you search on the internet you will get even more confused, with multitudes of fashion e-stores offering a wide range of designer dresses to choose from. You’ll find every type of party and festive dress in virtual store galleries, including such special ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ attires like quinceanera gown dresses and gorgeous bridesmaid dresses. Note down the price tags for the same dress available in two or more e-stores. You’ll be surprised to see how much one can differ from the other!
- Do not follow the suggestions from fashion mags blindly – It is by far the safest route to keep your mind safe from getting crowded with multiple options. There’s a maze out there to spoil you with umpteen choices, while you’re selecting quinceanera dresses. As a result, you’re bound to get confused and indecisive while making a purchase decision and will eventually ends up paying more for a dress that’s not even worth it! Remember that fashion mags too gets sponsorship from design houses so they’re bound to “write” good things about their patron’s products and offerings. I am not saying that all fashion mags are the same, but such things do happen! So trust your judgment, think rationally and then act.
- Ask your mom, aunt, or seniors for ideas – There’s no shame asking for help and a little bit of inspiration from those who love you and care for you. In fact, they would be more than willing to help you out with the selection process. There’s no alternative to experience, and nothing can be better when you have someone by your side who can guide you with selecting the best quinceanera gown dress for your big day.
- Customize your special dress – This is by far the best option, although a time consuming one! And for that matter, you need to invest quality time and plan way ahead on such essential parts like – finalizing the color of your quinceanera dress, the fabric you want it to be made of, the design (motif) or the type of stitching you want on your dress and so on. You need to finalize all of these before visiting a seamstress and once you’re there explain in details what you’re really looking for! Whether its quinceanera gown dresses or gorgeous bridesmaid dresses an expert seamstress or a reputable ladies tailor can make you one within your budget so that you shine on your red letter day.
