If you are going to purchase a new dress or wearing something you already own, try the dress on along with the accessories, before the event. This way, you'll know how the outfit's going to look on you. At the day of the event, make sure to bring a light sweater or shawl. No matter what the temperatures are, you will be prepared. Also, remember the golden rule - comfort is fashionable.
