Even when you have a wardrobe filled with clothes, it can get all sorts of confusing when it comes to picking a single dress. The confusion can especially reach its peak when you have to pick a dress for a formal occasion. Formal wear can be monotonous. So, to make sure that you are not the odd one out in a gathering, it is important to know all the popular dress types for formal occasions. Here are some tips to help you:
A white shirt is always the answer
You can never go wrong with a plain white shirt when attending a formal occasion. It can be worn with any other color and you can pair it up with anything that you like – a formal skirt, trousers, or a palazzo. You just need to tuck in the shirt, and you are ready to ace the formal look!
A well-fitted blazer
Layering up your formal shirt with a well-tailored blazer is always a great idea and one of the most popular dress types for formal occasions. It is effortless wear and can even work for a formal after-work get together over drinks. Not only will the blazer give a sense of power and command, but it will also protect you from excessive cooling, which is a problem at most formal events.
Long dresses give you the desired formal look and at the same time let you stay comfortable and relaxed. You can team it up with a modern and classy bun, a dark lipstick, and some finely done eyes. A long dress will not only let you ace a formal look, but it will also let you be a trendsetter at the event. To do complete justice to the dress and your look, do not carry a bag with a shoulder strap.
If you are heading for a formal meeting and don’t know what to wear, pick a pencil skirt and you are good to go. The pencil skirt should neither be too short since it can interfere with the formal look nor should it be too long to mess up the structural look of you body. It should be the perfect length. You can team it up with a formal shirt or a blouse.
If you are looking for formal wear that can also be worn to formal occasions, peg trousers should be your pick. They are comfortable and at the same time give you a stylish formal look. Team it up with a formal shirt or a blouse and some stylish stilettos.
Straps and trousers
Trousers are cliché and boring. Therefore, to add a little fun and style to it, strap it up. It will give you a trendy formal look and will make you stand out from the crowd.
