Summer Formal Wear Guide Part One

When the weather turns warm, it definitely shapes the decisions we make regarding our wardrobe. Whether you live in Florida or not, you've probably considered how in the world you are going to regulate your body temperature in a gown at an outdoor wedding in May. We put together some of our strategically chosen favorite cocktail dresses and gowns to get us through the season...

Part One: Cocktail

Short dresses are a little easier to figure out, but there are still things you want to consider. Make sure that a shorter length is appropriate for the event. Even if the invitation say 'black tie optional' or 'formal' you can still chose a cocktail dress that is embellished enough to make up for the hem. Also think about the weight of the fabric and whether or not you'll be spending some time in the sun. Heavier fabrics are definitely going to make you sweat and delicate fabrics, like silk, are going to give away your prespiration immediately. We chose a majority of jersey blend fabrics that breathe.

Advice for Finding Your Perfect Prom Dress

Prom season is beginning, and that means you need to find your perfect prom dress. When you begin looking for a prom dress rental, gather your close friends or family and schedule an appointment with a local shop. Always remember to find the perfect dress for yourself, not those you bring along for a second opinion. For further information on finding the perfect prom dress rental, read below.

Book an Appointment
Find a local dress shop or dress rental location that will allow you to book a one-on-one session with a stylist. This focused time with an expert will give you the opportunity to discuss your likes, dislikes, and concerns. Your stylist will know what she has in stock, and she can help you find the perfect prom dress that will suit your personality and your body type.

Bring Close Friends
It is always best to bring a few friends, your mom, or your close relatives to your appointment. You need the advice individuals who will have your best interests in mind. These friends or family members should feel comfortable telling you the truth about how a formal gown looks on you. They should also know you well enough to pick up on subtle clues that you like or dislike a dress. Avoid bringing a large entourage to your dress shopping appointment. If you have too many competing voices and personalities, then you may become overwhelmed and choose a dress you secretly dislike.

Choose for Your Comfort
Choose the prom dress that you feel the best in. If a dress makes you feel uncomfortable—perhaps it is too tight, revealing, or an unflattering color—then you do not need to follow the current fashion trends. Your prom is an exciting event in your life, so choose the dress that will make it memorable.

Looking For That Edge

Edgy Prom Dresses are in high demand right now, and rightfully so! We love the bold accents and confident silhouettes this year!

Look for details that make your dress stand out like interesting cutouts, with or without sheer...

We love these sexy cutouts of the Craving Cutout Gown by Abyss. Their dresses are almost always considered edgy, so if that's what you're going for, definitely check out their page. The best part is their rental fees are almost always under $100! Get that look you want and stay way under budget!

Or new or assymetric necklines...

Faviana is another designer that is always on trend! We love the high halter neckline and open sides and strappy back of the Sophisticated Halter Gown. Check off all the boxes by shopping their page. Their silhouettes are sexy and daring, with a splash off fun colors!

And different colors than you're used to seeing...

While Clarisse usually stays within the fun & flirty range of prom dresses, they do have some edgy designs as well. Check out the embellishment on the Tempting Cutout Cobalt Gown. We also have it in black if you're not ready to jump into color yet. Check out Clarisse's page to shop their other looks. We also recommend Jasz Couture for some dresses on the sexier side!
