Finding the perfect school formal dress might seem like a daunting task. You want to leave a lasting impression on your schoolmates and create cherished memories before heading onto new adventures. You don’t want to look at photos in 20 years and wonder, what was I thinking? Creating a Pinterest board or saving screenshots from your favourite celebrities and influencers is a great way to figure out your personal style. Are you timeless? Or into trends? Do you want to stand out in colour-pop hues? Or play it safe with classic colours? Make sure you think about hair and makeup, too. Once you have found ample inspiration, it’s time to hit the shops and play dress up. Leave your stress for final exams and follow our top tips for nailing school formal style.
1. CHOOSE A LBD
There’s no denying the power of a little black dress – or a long black dress. Sleek, chic and always elegant, black formal dresses are an effortless choice. Cut-out details, asymmetric hemlines and shimmering touches prove black formal dresses are anything but boring. We love the Miami Heat Backless and Asymmetrical Games Strapless Gown for understated yet stylish occasion dressing.
3. MAKE IT A MINI
Depending on your school’s dress code, formal doesn’t always have to mean maxi.
If the invite says cocktail, smart casual or even semi formal, a short dress might be the perfect pick.
