Confirmation dresses for young ladies by Ana Alcazar.
In the Roman Catholic Church, confirmation brings the fulfilment of the christening; it is mostly taking place at the age between 14 and 16 years (in rare cases also earlier). Young ladies, who have their confirmation this year, are quite likely to be already searching for just the right outfit for this big event. A confirmation outfit should be elegant, but also age-appropriate, i.e. youthful and not frumpy. In the olden days, a dark skirt and a white high-necked blouse was a popular choice of clothing for the confirmation and also classic outfits with skirt and blazer or trouser suits were often to be seen. Today, these kinds of outfits seem a bit old-fashioned and not really up to date. Young ladies rather go for a pretty and elegant confirmation dress. Here, you can find all the things that you have to consider when buying such a dress.
Rules for confirmation dresses.
Confirmation is one of the seven holy sacraments and is mostly taking place in a rather pompous church atmosphere. The confirmand is the real centre of attention and hence festive clothing is called for. Accordingly, the general rules for a visit to church apply when it comes to the right choice of confirmation dresses. The dress mustn’t be too short, so please remember to pick a knee-length dress. Sleeveless confirmation dresses are no problem at all; however, make sure to wear a matching cardigan on top as the following rule of thumb also applies here: uncovered shoulders are generally not all to welcome at church. By the way, the same goes for a neckline that’s too deep: a confirmation may have fresh spring-like colours, but pastel colours are the apt choice instead of neon; if you are more into discreet colours, a classic dark blue is preferable to black.
