Formal Event Chic? Nailed It!

Heading to a formal event can strike fear in the hearts of even the most savvy fashionistas. Something about them just doesn’t sit right. Many think that they have to sacrifice their personal style in order to look ‘appropriate’ for a formal event. This could be when you’re going to be a guest at a wedding, your graduation, or something else where you have to look ‘classy’. You don’t want to lose your personality amongst all of those below the knee dresses and barely there heels! So, how can you nail formal event chic? Read on to find out!


Don’t Be Afraid To Accessorize However You Like
You might need to wear a longer dress than you’d usually wear, but how about your accessories? You can accessorize however you like, so get really creative with it and see what you can do! Maybe you can create an arm party using your favorite bangles, or maybe you can wear lots of different rings so you look like a bohemian princess. There are no rules. Lots of people like to make a statement with their shoes, bag, or both. This is totally up to you, and it’s the perfect opportunity to inject some of your unique personality into whatever you’re wearing.

Find A Classy But Unusual Dress
Although you may want a classy dress, that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. By looking at brands like The Iconic you can get a feel for unusual dresses with unique shapes and textures, so you can stay classy without being totally boring.

Try Clashing Colors
Don’t be afraid to clash colors to make a statement. How about orange shoes with a purple dress? Maybe a turquoise dress with a bright pink bag? If you need inspiration, take a look at Pinterest. Clashing colors is a huge thing lately and you’re bound to find something that you like on there.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Looking A Little Undone
Although this is a formal event and you want to look chic, don’t be afraid of looking a little undone. Have you noticed that all of the coolest, best fashionistas always look a little undone? Think of Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, and people who just seem to look cool no matter what they’re doing. You could wear your formal dress but instead of styling your hair for hours on end, how about creating a loose beachy wave.

Only you know how you feel comfortable, so make sure you take that into consideration too at your formal event. If you don’t like wearing skyscraper heels, by all means go for some more relaxed mules. If you don’t like wearing dresses, go for a blazer and trousers combo that’s bound to get some attention! There are all kinds of ways you can dress in an appropriate manner for a formal event, while maintaining your comfort and personal style.
