Formal dress fashion tips

You may have always wanted to wear a formal dress, but it can be hard to know where to start. The good news is that there are lots of ways to make a formal dress your own and wear it in a way that feels authentic and comfortable. Here's how:

First, whenever you're trying to figure out what to wear to a formal event, look at the invitation. If it's printed on heavy cardstock and has some kind of seal on it, that's an indication that the event is really formal. If it's not, then maybe it will be more casual.

Highlight what you love. If you love your arms, look for a dress that leaves them bare or has sleeves with embellishments or cut-outs. If your back looks amazing in your swimsuit, pick out a dress with an interesting back line like an open back or sheer panels.

Think about the accessories. The right pair of accessories or shoes can really elevate your look. If your dress is long and simple, choose something more flashy—try a sparkly stiletto or metallic clutch with rhinestones. If your dress has lots of detail, opt for something simple—a simple earring or closed-toe stiletto will give balance and structure to the look.

It's a fact of life that not everyone feels comfortable in a dress. When you're looking for formal wear, you want something that's elegant and special, but also casual enough that you can dance the night away. Our formal jumpsuits are just what you're looking for. You'll look as if you just stepped off a fashion runway, while feeling completely comfortable.

So when you visit us in the Boutique in the Pearland Town Center, let our personal stylist take your breath away with our amazing options—from shoes to hair accessories and everything in between.
