Freshers’ fashion: How to dress for your first formal
Here’s The Tab’s guide to finding the perfect Formal outfit for you.
The Mini dress
Mini dresses can be flattering with anyone from those with long legs, or short legs. Minimalism works best, either with simple accessories or a simple dress; less is definitely more.
These can be particularly hard to pull off, but the trick is to wear a skirt or pair of shorts which are high waisted. Showing off the bare minimum of your tum is the perfect way to be effortlessly sexy.
The Midi dress
The midi-dress is great if you’re unsure about committing fully to the mini or maxi. The mid shin length is perfect to dance the night away, whether it’s in a bodycon, or a flowy material as seen here.
The Maxi dress
For those daring to lift your dress as you walk, the maxi is for you. They add elegance and sophistication to any formal outfit, to make you picture perfect ready!
The formal playsuit is a fun way of looking sleek, whist being able to boogie. They make your bum look great, so for all booty lovers, this is the outfit for you.
Who needs gender based clothing anyway? Break all the rules and bare all in a pantsuit. Monochrome works best, so pair with a pair of nude heels and you’re ready to look fierce.
The T-Shirt dress
This t-shirt flapper-esq dress is perfect for the cucumbers of the world who just want to show off their assets! If you have more of a boxy frame, opt for a more loose, detailed dress to spring into your formal in style.
The Skater dress
Small boobed girls this is for you! A low cut front and a flared skirt really helps accentuate petite frames.
