Dress Code For A Formal Occasion

1 Buy your dreamy dress: Secondhand shops offer dresses for less. Mind you, many formal occasion dresses are expensive but the price of recycled dresses might not be too high. (eg. a $200 dress might be somewhere between $60 -$80) Also, Macy’s and Bloomingdales have great formal mini-dresses for about $20 – $60. So unless you need a puffy Cinderella dress, go to Macy’s. And Ross is the ideal place to get a modest gown they have many styles and types of dresses from chic to vintage for pretty cheap price!

2 Jewelery the general rule is: Don’t go overboard! Avoid matching all your jewelery. Mix it up a bit. If you still want to match it, then try to ensure that at least one piece isn’t from the “set.”

3 Nails: Get a manicure/pedicure or glue on nails. Remember that if the dress is too long or too loose, it will not be charming, instead tacky. “Forever French” or french polish is always chic.

4 Hair: Style your hair to compliment your dress. Experiment the week before the formal to see what looks best with your dress, frame, etc. Hair accessories (hairpin, feathers, jeweled combs,etc.) can also improve interest. Keep in mind that whatever style you choose, clean hair is a must.

5 Make-up The general rule is: Pay more effort in to your eyes or lips, but not two. You will spend an hour or two to prepare your make up before your special night. Start with a sheer foundation and use it sparingly. (Be aware that some foundations and powders can actually make your skin reflect several shades lighter in photographs. Also, if you’re fake-tanning, make sure that your foundation matches your finished colour, otherwise it’ll end up looking cheap and fake.) Decide on where you want the focus to be. Bold lips are not for the faint-hearted, so if you’re unsure, err on the side of caution and focus on your eyes.
