Choosing a Quinceanera Style

Choosing a Quinceanera Style

Quinceanera is an important celebration in the Hispanic cultural. It marks the passage of young girls into their womanhood on their 15th birthday. The celebration gives thanks to God for his blessings and highlights family, friends, music, food and dance. A Quinceanera is similar to the American tradition of the Sweet Sixteen, and many merged families decide to unite their Hispanic and American heritage by combining the two parties together. No matter how you decide to celebrate, the dress is arguably one of the most important elements in the celebration.

When looking for cute Quinceanera dresses to wear, you should consider your body type. The truth is, not all dresses look good on all body types. Choose a dress that you feel comfortable in and that also compliments your body. A gown with a puffy tulle skirt will create volume below your waist, while an A-line dress looks best on a narrow silhouette. If you choose a backless dress, make sure it is either strapless or has thin straps.

White and pastel colored gowns with elaborate details and sequins where once the customary dress worn for the Quinceanera. This isn’t always a hard and fast rule, and the dress can have just about any style and color. In fact, black is not an uncommon color option for the dress and can actually create a more elegant and grown-up feel. However, the color of the dress should influence the colors of the invitation, decorations, flowers and cake.

Jewelry is a major accessory that should complement the dress, making it look complete. Necklaces, earrings and tiaras are often worn during the Quinceanera. If the dress is colorful, choose accessories that are subdued shades. If the dress is white or a lighter color, choose more colorful accessories.

The hairstyle is another important part of the entire outfit. Your style must flow from the top to the bottom to create the complete look. The complete ensemble should make you stand out from the crowd. No matter what, the dress should reflex your style and taste, and be an extension of the young woman of the hour.
