Springtime is perfect for parties, weddings and of course, proms! I remember going to my Jr. & Sr. Prom and fortunately finding a dress was no hassle. I purchased my Jr. Prom gown from White House Black Market and my Sr. Prom dress at David’s Bridal. Nowadays, girls want custom-made gowns with all the bells and whistles. I still think it’s OK if you play it safe and wear something classic and elegant, with a touch of your own personality. And as I’ve told a few young ladies, purchase a gown that you can wear again. There is NOTHING wrong with re-purposing a prom dress for a wedding, a pageant or any other classy affair. Below are two looks that are budget perfect, as well as on trend and fashionable!
Spring Weddings are also popular. Depending on the location of the wedding (in or outdoor), you can go with a nice cocktail-like dress or a flirty and flowy mini dress. If the wedding is in the evening and it’s indoors, the 1st look would be my choice. The black and white flowers are timeless and the sheer neckline is super sexy without showing too much. If the wedding is during the day and it’s outside, go for a pretty flowy dress. Going for a shorter dress is best because it just looks more “dressy”. Keep it simple with the accessories, and add a high heel, strappy sandal to finish off the look.
Now switching gears a bit. I love an all white party just like the next person. But being the mini-rebel that I am, I don’t see a problem with adding a splash of color to an all white look. A colorful purse or pair of shoes will do the trick! Or, you can look for accessories pieces that include gold/or silver hardware. For example, the Dorthy Perkins clutch below is white, but has gold hardware to give the bag an edgy/trendy look. You can also take a not form Kylie Jenner and do a chunky gold necklace and bracelet!
Wearing nude or white pumps is a perfect finishing touch. Halle Berry and Rihanna did so in the looks below. I love a pant suit as an option for an all white party or event. It’s super classic and chic, yet comfortable and stylish. The masculine pant details in a pant suit is so sexy to me. It screams, “Powerful Woman”. Idk…maybe that’s just me, LOL! Which pant suit would you prefer; Halle or Rihanna?
Lastly, wearing all white in a casual way is great for a day party. Dressing the look up with a fedora, vintage sun glasses and killer heels is the best way to go. The look below shows how to style those pieces. The look also shows how to style classic pieces such as a white t-shirt, a hat and a pair of black (sandal) heels. You can mix and match those pieces in MANY ways, which is yet another reason why it’s important to always have those “wardrobe essentials” in your closet.
So if you’re headed to the prom, a wedding, or an all white party, I’ve got you covered! I plan to keep all these looks in mind for summer; especially the casual white look. It’s my fave!
Until next time, be blessed. TTYS!
