One of the greatest advantages of the infinity dress is its versatility. No need to worry about being unique for every outing, you can create a new look with every wear. 

If you opt for an infinity dress made with African print, the choice of colours and patterns will be endless. 

Special Occasions to Wear an Infinity Dress

Dresses for bridesmaids are like sisters right, not twins. So, most brides will choose a colour and then the dress for each bridesmaid would be slightly different. 

Well, with an infinity dress, it's really easy to create a cohesive look amongst your wedding party, whilst incorporating slight differences.

Plus you'd be able to give your bridesmaids some freedom to be creative. And if you really want to stand out an African print infinity dress would be the perfect choice. 

How to Tie An Infinity Dress

To get you started on getting the most out of your infinity dress, consider trying out different styling options. 

Some popular ways to this dress type include a strapless dress, off-shoulder dress, one-shoulder dress, halter dress, and even a skirt. The possibilities are endless, and with a tad bit of creativity, you can create a unique look that suits your style and the occasion.

Let's explore different ways to tie the infinity dress.

1. Over the Shoulder

One-shouldered designs are a great choice that can highlight the upper body while maintaining a contemporary and stylish look.

To achieve this look, start by placing both straps over one shoulder. To hold it in place, cross it at the back and wrap the remainder of the straps around your waist, securing it with a knot or bow.

This elegant and versatile style is a great option for any wedding party looking for a modern twist on traditional bridesmaid dresses.

2. Cross Front

Start by crossing the straps over each other in the front. Next, drape the straps over opposite shoulders and cross them over again at the back. 

Finally, wrap the two straps around the waist and secure them in place for a comfortable and flattering fit.

3. Halter Neck (Closed)

Looking for an elegant look?

Hang both straps over each shoulder, ensuring they are spread wide. Then, gently twist the straps at the back to create a narrower band around the waist. 

Wrap them around your waist once or twice. Finally, tie a knot at the back to secure the dress in place.

4. Sleeves Creation

Creating sleeves with the infinity dress adds a beautiful and traditional touch, with a modern twist. 

Begin by taking each strap over the opposite shoulder. Then, wrap the straps around the waist a few times and tuck them into the front to secure the look.

5. Knotted Front

The knotted front style is a stunning choice that adds a unique twist to your look. To create this captivating style, gently drape them over the chest and tie a knot near the neckline. 

Next, bring both straps around the back, where you have the option to add a few twists or cross them over for added flair. 

Finally, wrap the straps around the waist and tie them securely to complete the stylish ensemble.
