A formal dress is a female dress code when attending formal garden party, formal dinner, debutante cotillion, wedding, engagement, and any other formal social events. Cocktail dresses, evening gowns, dinner gowns, and ball gowns are among the formal dresses worn by women when attending formal events.
When looking for a formal dress, there are three things you need to consider. First, the details of the dress whether it has beads, bows, or rouching. Second is the retro styling– either it is a classic halter or strapless lace with full skirt. Of course, you should also consider its color. Remember, dresses in classic colors are always a safe choice. But if you want to look more fashionable, choose dresses in girly colors such as pink, purple, or fuchsia.
Ball gown or full-skirted dress is the grandest type of formal dress and the best choice when attending the most formal events. Women wearing a ball gown usually have a grand entrance upon arriving the occasion’s venue due to the eye-catching style of the dress.
If you are going to attend an occasion with a red-carpet theme, strapless dress is the best. This type of dress emphasizes a woman’s best assets, including her face and shoulders. At the same time, a strapless dress covers tummy and hips, the body parts that usually have problems for most women.
Empire waist dress is the best option if you are looking for a dress that will elongate your body. It hides lower-body figure problems and highlights your assets on the upper portion.
Another option when looking for a formal dress is the halter dress, which brings focus on your pretty face. It also leads eyes to a woman’s earrings and nice hairstyle.
