Most of us dress with a low waistline associated with the fashion of the beginning of the last century. To create a harmonious image of decoration for such a dress you need to select the appropriate.

Evening women's dresses in those days embodied the concept of glamor - so much they had luxury and glitter. For a dress for solemn occasions, you should wear exquisite jewelry or retro-style jewelry: long beads, knotted, sparkling dangle earrings, bracelets and rings with large stones. Just do not wear everything at once - a pair of jewelry will be quite enough.


The waist line shifted downwards visually makes you lower, and your legs are slightly shorter. Therefore, the main task in choosing shoes is to choose the one that will smooth out this effect. It means that it is necessary to abandon flat shoes, as well as high boots and boots, which will additionally “cut” the foot horizontally.

The best option is shoes or sandals with high heels. Shoes beige and cramped color will be an excellent choice, because, firstly, it will fit almost any dress, and secondly, it will visually lengthen the legs.
