Top 5 Tips for Picking the Best Formal Dress

Hey Amarra Babes, we all need that one dress to impress. We make a first impression when we walk into the room. We need the guys to pause what they’re doing and sneak some looks at our fashion statement.

What Is a Formal Dress?

A formal dress is what you wear to a fancy event. You’ll see many of these dresses at a prom or graduation. These dresses show people you’re on your A-Game. You’ll feel like a queen when you put on your formal dress.

However, picking a formal dress can get challenging. That’s why we’ve got five tips for picking the best format dress so you wow the crowd.

#1: Read Through the Invitation

We’ve got to start with the invitation before picking our dress. The invitation tells us what attire to bring to the event. You don’t want to underdress, but you don’t want to overdress either. The invitation lets you find the Goldilocks attire — the formal dress just right for the occasion.

You’ll dress differently for your graduation compared to your prom. Knowing the event’s expectations is important.

You’ve also got to consider the atmosphere. If the place is air-conditioned, you don’t want to go in with a short skirt and a short-sleeve shirt. That would be very cold. Brrrrrrr! A curve-hugging jersey will keep you warm at a cold venue.

You don’t want to be panting either because you overdressed. You want to be the comfortable queen throughout the event. Knowing the venue location and formalities of the event will help you make the best choice.

#2: Find Your Style

Alright, ladies, this is where we get to customize. A dress that matches your style lets you show the world who you are. Look for a dress that matches your personality. The dress doesn’t make you special. You make the dress special. Look through some dresses until you find one that speaks out to you.

You only get one shot, so take as much time as you need. Once you find the graduation dress that speaks to you, grab it before it gets sold out. Confidence is key in picking the right dress. It should be a dress you look and feel great in.

We know many girls who struggled with finding the right dress. Sure enough, they found the right dress for their formal event. We’ve got great examples on our Instagram to provide you, babes, with inspiration.

#3: Wait for a Color to Catch Your Eye

Choosing the right color can get the guys’ jaws to drop when they see you. Mauve pink will steal the show at formal events. You’ll get a lot of attention from the guys and gain the spotlight. Blue and burgundy dresses are both the new hot things for format events.
Struggling to choose a dress? You can stick with the tried and true black or white for your formal dress. They never go out of style.

#4: Get into the Nitty Gritty

Okay, babes, our next plan of attack is to get into the nitty-gritty. Dress embellishments can add an extra flair to your appearance. Refined embroidery can help your dress stand out in the evening. Beading can give your appearance an extra sparkle.

However, you don’t want to go too deep either. Extra details can improve your look, but less is more here. Keep it simple, so you look your best.

#5: Find Fabrics for the Right Look

We are at the home stretch. Phew! It takes a lot to find the right dress, but it’s all worth it when you SLAY IT at the event. Using fabrics will help you develop that trendsetting look. Satin paints give you a polished appearance. Tulle fabrics give you a youthful and energetic look. You can find a fabric for any occasion. However, you need to feel comfortable in the fabrics.

Picking a graduation dress, or any dress for that matter is a big decision. The tips we covered will help you find the right dress for the next occasion. You want to look elegant and stunning as you meet your friends and get the guys’ attention. You’ve got this!
