Aug 7, 2014

It is important to gear your choice in junior pageant dresses to the appropriate season. Fall fashion differs from pageantdesigns-blog6-junjul2014fashions that are popular at other times of the year, so it is essential for you to make decisions based on seasonable considerations. Here are some popular trends for fall pageant gowns!

  • A gemstone-embellished dress with a halter top is ideal for fall. An orange color scheme is perfect for matching your pageant dress to the changing leaves.
  • The wire spiral skirt pageant dress in pink is reminiscent of the crisp wind that blows through on a fall day. Judges will be reminded of taking a brisk walk in the cool air when they see the flowing skirt.
  • The Ritzee Girls ruffle skirt with rhinestones is perfect for fall when you select the jade color. The darker color is ideal for fall fashion.
  • Junior dresses in navy blues or dark reds reflect the season well by matching up with the colors that are seen outdoors during this time of year. Warm colors are recommended to stay in line with the cozy feeling associated with fall. Think of evoking the feeling of curling up under blankets on a cool afternoon in the middle of the fall.

Aug 7, 2014

Pageants are a fun way to show off the pageant dresses for juniors that you have purchased just for the occasion.pageantdesigns-blog5-junjul2014Unfortunately, many girls are frightened of speaking while they are on stage during a competition. Stuttering, freezing up or generally appearing to be nervous can cost you the competition, and knowing that your performance impacts your ability to win can make you even more nervous. Overcoming this fear before a pageant is the best technique for doing your best. Here are some tips so you can start to overcome your fear of public speaking before your next event!

  • Decide what you are going to talk about before pageant day arrives. If you do not know the topic beforehand, be prepared to speak on a range of popular pageant topics.
  • Use relaxation techniques right before you go on stage. Counting slowly is a good way to shift your focus off of the task at hand.
  • Focus on the message that you are trying to convey during the pageant. If you find yourself becoming nervous, focus on why you are passionate about participating in pageants.
  • Never apologize when you are on stage. The audience is unlikely to notice a small amount of nervousness, and apologizing just brings attention to it.

If you are getting ready to sport one of the lovely beauty pageant evening gowns available online, you may be getting nervous about how you will perform while wearing such a formal dress.

  • Learning how you are supposed to move in your evening gown is essential for ensuring a positive experience. Here are some tips that will help you look and act your best during your next pageant.
  • Do not be afraid to opt for a style that offers more comfort. There are plenty of beauty pageant evening gowns that are specifically designed to retain the classic style of an evening gown while offering superior comfort features.
  • Maintain a consistent speed on stage. Women who fall on stage during the evening gown portion of a pageant often do so because they have tried to speed up. Consistent speeds look better and reduce the risk of a fall.
  • Practice walking in your shoes well before the day of the pageant. This is especially important if you are going to be wearing heels that are higher than you are used to wearing.
  • Walk in your dress at home before the pageant. Use music to help you keep the right pace as you stroll up and down your hall.
