Whether your style is romantic and traditional or modern, red carpet glam, the style consultants at Prevue know all the tips and tricks for finding the perfect dress.
Do Your Research
If you’re not sure what kind of quinceanera look is right for you, Instagram is a great source of inspiration. A main hub for fashion bloggers, social media influencers, and top designers, Instagram has anything and everything you could imagine when it comes to quinceanera dresses. You also want a gown that looks amazing in pics, so if it looks gorgeous on your Instagram feed, that’s definitely a good sign.
Choose the Best Color for your Skin Tone
Another key decision in a quinceanera dress is the color, especially since certain hues complement different skin tones. For Cristina Ehrlich, Hollywood’s most powerful stylist, her approach to style centers around color: “Color is the number one most important thing to me when it comes to styling…The first thing I do with a new client is study their skin tone and figure out what’s going to look best.”
If this is your first evening gown, consider the trending colors and how it will contrast with your skin tone: top colors this season are blush, rose gold, and Cinderella blue. Also, if you have very fair to light skin, dark neutral shades, pastels, and jewel tones are all flattering colors. Alternatively, people with medium to dark skin can wear bright and bold colors for a stunning contrast that glows from head to toe.
When you go for your dress fitting, try on gowns in different colors and then decide which ones look the best. It also would be helpful to see how you look in photos, so take a few pics and notice which dresses make an impact. You’ll know right away if it works for you or not.
A Comfortable and Flattering Fit
When it comes to fashion, making a statement is everything, especially at an event like your quinceanera. When you go dress shopping, look for quality gowns made by top brands like Morilee; these dresses are expertly stitched for the most comfortable and shapely fit. If you’re looking for a touch of couture glam, the style consultants at Prevue can also help arrange for your gown to have custom alterations on the neckline or bodice.
Choose your Accessories
Since most quinceanera dresses have full ball gowns, your shoes will only peek out from your dress. Look for a subtle style that accents your overall look. It could also match the accents on your bodice, like rhinestone embroidery for a touch of head-to-toe sparkle. Or, add the sleek effect of understated elegance with pumps that match the color of your dress.
A classic accessory for quinceaneras, tiaras can be the final touch for over the top sparkle. If the bodice of your dress has rhinestones and embroidery, tiaras add even more wow factor to your overall look. Comfort is key to looking and feeling beautiful and confident. Make sure the tiara isn’t too heavy and can stay in place while you dance the night away. This accessory should be comfortable enough to wear for several hours so ask your stylist to show you different shapes and sizes to find the perfect fit.
The Latest Trends in Quinceanera Gowns
Following the latest celebrity looks, rhinestone bodices and glitter gowns are an on-trend way to glam up your look and highlight your figure. An exquisitely detailed gown from the Vizcaya Quinceanera collection by Morilee, the glitter patterned fabric gives you top to bottom sparkle while the pearl detail and matching bolero cape adds a touch of high fashion glamour.
A timeless quinceanera trend season after season is a ball gown. You’ll feel like royalty in voluminous ruffles that cascade in a range of luscious patterns. If you’re going for the traditional princess style, you’ll love the exquisite details and regal silhouettes of the Vizcaya Quinceanera collection by Morilee, the ultimate in luxury.
An enduring quinceanera look that never goes out of style, layers of tulle add a substantial amount of volume to a classic ball gown. Included in the exclusive collection of Vizcaya Quinceanera by Morilee, the ball gown with layered tulle evokes the traditional style of Cinderella but with a modern update. For a fifteen-year-old girl blossoming into a young woman, looking and feeling like a fairytale princess is the ultimate dream come true.
The latest trend in formal wear is off-the-shoulder sleeves, a favorite old Hollywood look for celebrities and pageant contestants. Beaded lace and embroidered organza fabrics drape off the shoulders and accent the feminie collar and jewelry pieces. Your stylist can accessorize your look with delicate earrings and a tear drop necklace.
When it comes to popular quinceanera dresses, you’ll find no shortage of ruffled ball gowns, but if you want to stand out at your event, lace sleeves add a hint of grandeur and elegance. In the ultimate combination of modern luxe and classic romance, long sleeves with open shoulders are the fashion obsession of the season.
For an ultra glam look, the ball gown with feather hem detail is perfect for giving you a dreamy and ethereal quinceanera style. The rhinestone-embroidered bodice completes the silhouette with a couture resemblance to classic Hollywood glamour.
An extraordinary event like your quinceanera calls for an extraordinary dress, so make a dramatic fashion statement in a gorgeous gown from Prevue, the largest bridal and formal wear store on the West Coast.
