Buying a dress for a woman can be a great way to show her you care. If you feel overwhelmed by the prospect, try not to worry. By assessing her personal style, making sure to get the right size, and choosing a type of dress that suits her tastes, you can give her something she will love and be excited to wear.
Observe what types of dresses she wears. To help you figure out what type of dress to buy, pay attention to the types of dresses she likes to wear (prom, part, bridesmaid, long evening dresses etc). Consider the colors, patterns, and cuts of the dresses she wears, including the shapes, lengths, and necklines.
- This will help you assess what types of dresses she wears to various occasions, as well as what types of dresses she feels comfortable in.
Listen closely when she talks about clothes. When you are with the woman you are buying a dress for, listen closely as she talks about her clothing, shopping, or when she makes comments about things she likes. Chances are, she will reveal some very useful information that will help you pick out a dress she will love.
- Pay close attention if she mentions particular stores or brands that she likes. This can give you an idea of where you should go shopping for the dress.
Take notice of the types of dresses she looks at. When you are shopping together, pay close attention when she seems interested in a dress, holds up a dress to look at, or tries on a dress. Take note of the colors, patterns, and silhouettes that she seems drawn to. This can give you an idea of the types of dresses to look for, or may even indicate a particular dress you can buy for her.
- You can also try taking her for a walk past some retail stores to see if she makes comments about any of the dresses in the windows.
