13 Dresses That Nail ‘Formal Attire’
*Look like a* MILLION DOLLAR BABY.
‘Tis the season where the invitations begin to roll in for the more fancy affairs. Weddings, formals, fundraisers – you name it, it’s happening. These invitations usually come hand-in-hand with dress codes like ‘formal attire’, ‘cocktail’ and ‘black tie’. It’s an exciting time but with that excitement comes the pangs of anxiety over to wear!
There’s a certain expectation (usually self inflicted) that at these types of events you have to look out of this world amazing. However, this doesn’t mean wearing more ice than Liberace.
When it comes to nailing the ‘formal attire’ dress code, the best rule of thumb to follow is ‘less is more.’
Elegance is the keyword, and it never goes out of style. When doing formal attire, the dress is the main event and the accessories are just the side acts. Plus, what you wear will influence all of your decisions regarding beauty and jewellery (take a sigh of relief).
