To decide on a dress that has both a flattering style and a fabulous fit isn't all that easy. You may want something that is easy to wear, but still attractive and fashionable at a reasonable cost. When my mother was looking for a dress she too was looking for a pretty and feminine, yet stylish look - not a frumpy or matronly style, since no one wants to be called old-fashioned. And sometimes what looks good on a hanger doesn't look right in person, so try on several different styles until you find the perfect one. Sometimes a jacket dress offers a nice option to cover flabby arms or maybe it's just because you're cold or you feel it's a little more appropriate for a church ceremony. Just as an older person might feel more comfortable in a covered pantsuit opposed to a dress. I found that JC Penney offers many jacket dresses in both short and long lengths that are age appropriate and very attractive.
One of the key components to looking good is a good fit. So be sure and look in the mirror not once, but twice. I can recall when three-way mirrors weren't so common, but nowadays it's a necessity, especially with all the video, iphones, and cameras all over the place. Nobody wants to be uncouth.
With all the different fabrics, designs, and colors in today's market a stylish, modern woman has her choice of shapes and patterns and colors. Whether you're looking for a trend-setting look or a tailored design of a jacket dress, the look should be orginal for any ceremony or affair from casual to elegant.
