A Guide for Picking Pink Dresses for Women

Whether we like it or not, clothes are very important in today’s society. They have the ability to showcase several things about our personalities, and at times, they can even showcase aspects of ourselves that we might not be even aware of in the first place. 

Things like status, good fashion sense, and the things we like or dislike… They all can be showcased in the way we dress ourselves.

But for some people, picking clothes can be a challenge in and of itself, especially if you are picking clothes for someone else. Not everyone has a completely trained eye when it comes to clothes, and fashion sense is a very important aspect of the whole process that sadly needs training, making it a not so easy task to do. 

Things become a lot more complicated if you are like me, someone who’s not really used to the whole idea of purchasing clothes and does not really understand trends or fashion at all. Thankfully, there’s no better day to learn than today, and just like myself, you can always put some time and effort into learning the basic aspects of picking clothes.

In this particular article, however, we will talk about how to shop pink dresses, whether you are a male wanting to gift one or a female wanting to buy one for yourself or for a friend, we will cover some of the most important aspects of the process and discuss some essentials you might find useful.

What Type of Dress Should You Pick?

Before we get into the different shades of the color pink you can pick from, we should firstly focus on the dress itself. Dresses can vary in designs, and many different designs usually aim to tackle a specific vibe or need.

Long dresses, for example, tend to enter the category of fancy and formal, and are usually used for elegant events like weddings. In this case, it’s better to take your time and visit stores personally to check the quality and fit of the dress you are interested in, only because they tend to be expensive and because these types of occasions tend to be very important. 

On the other hand, short dresses are a little bit more casual and are perfect for warm seasons in which freedom and comfort should be considered when purchasing clothing. Frequently, a short dress is bought for spring and summer and is perfect for outdoor events or casual dates.

There’s also an in-between option: The cocktail dress. This one is usually aimed toward semi-formal events like a prom dance, a holiday party, or a dancing event. They combine the fanciness of a long dress with the comfort and mobility of a short dress, making it the perfect option for occasions in which fanciness and freedom are highly appreciated!

Another important thing to have in mind is the type of fabric to go for. Some materials are much warmer and thicker than others, aimed toward cold seasons, whereas fabrics that are thinner are aimed toward warm seasons, thus, you might want to consider which option is more viable based on the circumstances.

If you are picking a dress for yourself, or picking a dress for someone else, try to consider your or the other party’s circumstances to go for the most reliable choice from the ones mentioned above. If you are having troubles, you can always visit this article for more guidance on the matter!

Is the Gift a Surprise?

If you are giving clothes as a surprise, regardless of the type of clothing you want to get them, the most useful tool you will have at your disposal will always be informed. The more you know about the other party, the better chances you have of giving a great gift.

This is where the whole surprise dilemma enters the play. Sure, if you are not planning to surprise the other person, you can just directly ask them about sizes and other necessary information. But… If the gift will be a surprise, you will have to craft a masterful plan, one that doesn’t raise suspicions.

The best way to approach the ordeal is to do things for the long-term run so the receiving party forgets about it until the day you gift them with the piece of clothing, which in this case is very likely to be a dress. For example, you can set up a situation months prior to giving the gift to get the information you might consider useful.

I once created a scenario months before buying the dress, in which a male friend of mine asked me for advice on what type of dress he should buy for his significant other. I asked my girlfriend about it and lead the conversation until I received information about:

  • Preferred color
  • Size
  • Preferred type of dress

Of course, she said she would like to receive a pink dress, which led me to this situation, and it is the main reason why I am sharing this information with you!

Choosing the Right Pink

Here’s when I learned that there are different shades of pink. In fact, if you visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shades_of_pink, you’ll notice that there are around 50 different shades of pink! How do you pick the right one? Well, it can be complicated yet simple at the same time.

Well, although dresses don’t cover all shades of pink showcased on that list, they still range between faint to strong. A weaker or faint shade of pink is usually more aimed toward formal events, since the subtle pastel pink color is a little bit more reserved, elegant, and combines well with accessories and other similar colors.

On the other hand, strong shades of pink are perfect for casual or informal occasions, especially if they involve outdoor activities and sunlight, since sunlight can emphasize the presence of the dress, providing a more appreciable look with summer vibes, especially good for activities like picnics, or a visit to a park or a beach!

Ideally speaking, the person’s preference plays an important role in the matter, but the occasion for the gift can also influence the final decision, so make sure to take your time to decide which type of design and color is the most viable according to the situation! 

You might also spice things up with some kind of accessory that goes well with it.  Check the linked article for more tips.
