There are as many ways to celebrate Quinceanera as there are families who celebrate it. Each party is going to be a different occasion, with some families taking the traditional route – a formal occasion where the church plays a role – and others choosing a more relaxed, modern approach. This means when picking the gown or dress for your Qinceanera party, it’s important to take into account not only the way your dress looks on you, but the way it fits into the occasion you’ve been looking forward to celebrating with so much eagerness!
FORMAL OR FLASHY?
Qinceanera dresses can be long, ball gown style affairs which play up the traditional beginnings of this custom. If your Qinceanera party is going to be a tradition event – mom, dad, your godparents, and that special someone taking you out on the dance floor to celebrate your coming of age, then you’ll want to choose a dress that is flattering but modest, with an air of formality about it. In this situation, you’re likely to be around a number of close family members, including older generations – so you don’t want to wear something with hems that go too high up or necklines that plunge too low! The majority of dresses and occasions will fall into this category, especially given the traditional nature of a Qinceanera.
If your Qinceanera party is going to be a laid-back occasion in a more modern setting, (maybe your family is bigger on the party side than the religious!) a shorter dress with cute patterns and colors is entirely appropriate. Fun, playful dresses with detailed feathers and patterns can liven up the occasion. This is definitely not an occasion where you want to get too risque, and remember that even in informal settings, Qinceanera is your chance to become a young lady, so make sure your dress shows you off in your best light.
If the site of your Qinceanera party is likely to be cold, it might be a good idea to bring along a shawl or cute jacket, although once you’re out on the dance floor shaking your stuff, you’ll be less likely to notice if the air conditioning’s on full blast; still, this isn’t a night you want to worry about whether you’re too hot or too cold so it’s always better to be prepared.
Whether formal or informal, when it comes to the fit you want to make sure that your beautiful qinceanera dress gives you room to move – after all, a big part of this occasion is the dancing and you don’t want to be worried about whether or not you can get your boogie on in a dress that doesn’t give you room to breathe!
CURRENT TRENDS IN QINCEANERA DRESSES
This year’s Qinceanera dresses are dominated by ballgown styles and bare shoulders, with accentuated waists and for the most part, long hems that skim the floor. A lot of dresses feature bright colors – jewel tones and primaries, with some silvers and golds as well. Hollywood glamor gives longer gowns an air of sophistication, harking back to awards show red carpets over the last few years. Shorter dresses with spaghetti straps (or no straps at all) accentuate your chest and legs, and make your choice of shoe and necklace even more important.
VIBRANT, EYE-CATCHING COLORS
Qinceanera dresses come in as many colors as they do shapes and sizes – so there’s bound to be a color that suits your complexion perfectly. Try on a number of colors and see what you like best, and what your parents and friends (and that impartial shop assistant) recommend. If a dress you like isn’t available in the color you want, you might be able to have something custom made, or find it at another retailer – just remember that to take this route you need to start looking for your Qinceanera early on rather than leaving it to the last minute.
This season there are dresses available in eye-popping colors: hot pinks, lime greens, stunning blues, glittering golds, and ethereal whites – just to name a few. A number of dresses have great contrasts – pink fabric with black belts, blue and silver sequins on a light blue background, and beautiful lace patterns which emphasize formality.Wonderful Aqua Blue Quinceanera Dress One Shoulder Satin and Organza Beading Ball Gown

ACCESSORIZE YOUR DRESS
If you’re looking for a dress you can wear more than once (not a bad idea) then a relatively plain Qinceanera dress can be made even more unique by using shoes, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and even your hair style to make your appearance as special as can be. Now is the time to pamper yourself – go to your mom or a stylist and get a stunning hair style that brings out a whole new grown-up look to those who know you best.
If you do have a plain dress, why not try shoes with a cute pattern on them? Make sure if you decide to wear heels you keep them low – at this age, more than an inch or so is probably not appropriate. By choosing a solid color dress with shoes that feature a bold, complimentary pattern, you can change this signature piece of your Qinceanera puzzle out for other occasions.
ENJOY YOUR PARTY
Qinceanera only happens once in a young woman’s life, so enjoy it while it lasts and make some great memories with your friends and family!
