Formal Dresses: Choosing Formal Dresses and Their Matching Hair Styles For Different Occasions

Ladies need to think hard to choose appropriate and gorgeous formal dresses for the events they’re attending. After all, your objective will be to look great, draw some admiring glances and leave a great impression on others.

Overall your dress and hair will need to look good and in keeping with the event, but it can be hard to even decide what to wear!

Let’s take a look at some of the occasions that you can wear formal dresses at and the styles of dress and hair that you can consider:

Concert or theatre

These are some of the most formal and ‘showy’ events. Let our your traditional, ‘old-style’ beauty and enjoy wearing something that’s ornate and different to the norm.

Formal dresses made of silk are first choice for these places, however silk-like satin would also be fine. The reason for this is that silken dresses would traditionally have been chosen by upper-class ladies attending concerts or the theatre and it has an unparalleled luster and feels just heavenly!

It’s also been suggested that silk reflects sound better than other materials, so if you wear it you might even hear the show better!

Wedding party of a close friend

For an unmarried girl, a wedding party is a good opportunity to meet new friends (or even a partner!). Shiny and brightly colored formal dresses will show your unique character and make you cut a noticeable figure. They’re also in fashion right now, so look for material like iridescent taffeta and metallics. Don’t choose colors that are so bright they’ll overshadow the bride, but on the other hand an interesting color like orange would be both eye-catching and fashionable.

Business cocktail party

No matter the size of party, unless specially stated that casual clothes are suitable, patrons should wear formal dresses to show that they are taking it seriously. Of course it’s not necessary to be dressed up like you’re attending the Oscar’s if you know that it’s just a staff get-together and not that serious. Evening dresses with a knee-length skirt may be more suitable as they’re business-like, but that little bit more relaxed than a long dress.

Top grade restaurant date

On this occasion, good food, wine and atmosphere are the name of the game. It’s a date, so elegant formal dresses are key to impressing your beau. Try a knee-length, one-shoulder dress in black accessorized with some sparkly jewelry. You’ll look elegant and timeless.

Formal evening banquet

Wearing formal dresses to attend a banquet shows your respect to the host.

Try a long skirted, highly decorated formal dress with plenty of ruffles and sparkly embellishments. A ball gown style would be perfect here.

Do remember that when wearing formal dresses, eating ravenously, talking loudly, getting drunk and other such behavior must be avoided. This kind of event is a very formal affair, so looking classy is important.

Whilst the dresses that you’re wearing are important, the hair styles that you choose to go with those formal dresses contribute a lot too.

Hair styles

There are three hair styles that go very well with evening formal dresses and there should be one for you according to your current hair style:

Long thick or out of condition hair

For those ladies that have long and thick hair, it’s a good idea to gather your hair on the top. This style along with formal dresses gives an impression of being noble. This is especially wise if your hair’s condition isn’t great and you don’t have time to give it some TLC.

Short hair

Ladies with short hair can make fewer patterns and just keep it simple to create a fresh and cool image. Try a bob cut with really severe bangs to look vamp-ish and chic.

Long hair

Ladies with long hair have many options, the best being curling it and allowing the curls to fall lazily over your shoulders. This wavy style with backless formal dresses can maximize feminine beauty. The sexy back becomes indistinct under the pretty waves of hair, creating a seductive and teasing affect.
