As we go through life, many occasions come along that require us to spend hours curling our hair and applying the perfect shade of red lipstick to our lips. From weddings to dinners to university club formals and everything in between, I’ve got you covered with the perfect dresses and heels to wear!
It’s all about the Little Black Dress
Lulus Shift Cold Shoulder Dress https://www.lulus.com/products/lulus-exclusive-shifting-dears-black-long-sleeve-dress/173986.html This shift dress is perfect for taking the classic black dress and adding a little bit more personality to it. The cold shoulder sleeves show a little more skin but in a tasteful manner. Due to its simple yet elegant vibe, this dress is one of my top picks for the formal season.
Kimchi Blue Tropi Mock Neck Mini Dress http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/category.jsp?id=SALE_W_DRESSES&startValue=73#/. This dress is gorgeous with a high neckline and a skirt that flows out from the waist. My personal favorite details are found at the back of the dress with the straps and the little gold zipper. The shape of this dress is super flattering and should look great on most body types.
Forever 21 Mesh Paneled Flared Dress http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=dress_party&ProductID=2000196579&VariantID=. The mesh detailing on the dress make it sophisticated while also a little sexier than the previous dresses. The back showing a little bit of skin makes this dress the perfect balance of conservative and risky. Not to mention, the price of this dress makes it even better!
For the Fun and Flirty Girl
Floral Lace Skater Dress http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=dress_party&ProductID=2000231378&VariantID=012. To say that I am obsessed with this dress is an understatement. The detail with the lace throughout the entire dress is truly breathtaking. This is definitely a one of a kind dress that will make you stand out from all the other girls at the venue. It comes in 2 color variations: wine and white and is equally stunning in both.
Dusk lace Off-The-Shoulder Dress https://www.madewell.com/madewell_category/DRESSES/shiftdresses/PRDOVR~F9714/F9714.jsp. This little number has a perfect balance of being dressed up while also being a little casual with the off the shoulders detail. The lace definitely makes the number slightly more dressy. Currently on sale now, this dress is a steal from Madewell.
Silen and Noise Iridescent Carved High-Neck Mini Dress http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=40338113&color=040&category=SALE_W_DRESSES. This dress is has a shimmery finish that will make you stand out a little but not too much. The unique cut at the front of the dress and the triangle strap design at the back make this dress pop.

Something a Little Different
Crushed Velvet Romper http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=dress_velvet&ProductID=2000234182&VariantID=023. Not being a major fan of the velvet trend, I can say that this romper is absolutely gorgeous. From the front you can barely tell it is a romper, but your ability to move around without worrying about flashing others is the benefit to wearing this piece. So get ready to dance around all night or crash on the couch looking cute while also not having to worry too much about the placement of your skirt.
Contemporary Wrap Front Romper http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=women-features&ProductID=2000213084&VariantID=044. The part that really stood out to me about this romper is the delicate lace detailing. The plunging neck line seems to be cut in the right manner so as not to be too revealing. The cinched waist will help you feel skinny all evening no matter how many finger foods you’ve nibbled on. Coming in wine and black, this number is perfect for the girl who doesn’t want to wear the standard dress while also looking put together.
Contemporary Satin Maxi Dress http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=dress_party&ProductID=2000191680&VariantID=021. This dress kind of reminds me of a satin nightgown but in the best way possible. It is simple and yet extremely sexy and elegant. The slit adds a little fun detail and the criss cross of the straps adds a little statement to the back of the dress.
