The Best Looks for Your Winter Formal

As fall homecomings come to a close and the winter season approaches, semi-formals are next on the list of dances. This means another exhausting search for a fabulous dress that is not only flattering, but seasonally appropriate and inspired by runway trends for this fall and winter. Getting that runway-inspired look for less can be quite the task. To help you out on your search for the perfect winter formal dress, we have compiled some ideas and looks that will make the journey to formal a bit easier.

Tony Bowls Sequin Dress for Winter Formal - Love That Dress Boutique

A great dress can work wonders for your confidence when it comes to big moments like your school’s winter formal. For this reason, we recommend going with a style that will turn heads. Embrace elements such as sequins and gemstones, which are always flattering around the holiday season. This Tony Bowls Sequin dress will transform you into a glamorous snow bunny at your semi-formal. The ice-blue color is perfect for winter. Top off your look with a glittered manicure and a cobalt-colored clutch.

Bows, holly, Santa’s suit and ornaments – all red everything! Red is a seasonal staple around the holidays. Channel your inner-Santa’s helper and take advantage of this seasonal trend. Make a statement in this eye-catching, red Riva Design. Go with a bold lip to complete the look.

Throw the “No White After Labor Day” rule out the window. We love winter white for this season’s semi-formals! This Tony Bowls Organza dress gives a flattering silhouette while still preserving the youthful look. Match this snowy white style with darker colored accessories such as plum or emerald.

Remember at a high school semi-formal, it is important to feel your best. No matter the dress you choose, you are sure to look wonderful, but it is your comfort level in your own skin that is most important!

Fall and Winter 2013 Fashion Trends

As we get deeper into autumn, that can only mean one thing: new trends are emerging and many of us are (secretly) anticipating all that winter fashion has yet to offer. With Fashion Week complete and magazines hitting newsstands, fashionistas everywhere are on the prowl for the latest trends. According to fashion gurus, there are a few very hot trends to consider when dressing up your closet this season:

Tony Bowls Mesh and Sequin Short Dress - 2013 Fall/Winter Fashion Trends - Love That Dress Boutique

Navy – Forget orange, navy is the new black this season! However you wear it, every woman will look classic in this fall fashion favorite. Mix different shades of blue throughout your ensemble to intensify your look. Pair this navy Tony Bowls dress with cobalt blue stilettos and turn heads at any event in this season’s standout color.

Metallic Mesh – Dresses, jackets and trousers with mesh and metallic accents are both sexy and elegant. Incorporating a metallic mesh piece into your fall and winter wardrobe is a definite must. These pieces hide parts of the body while accentuating others. Get your shine on by wearing a dress that subtly reveals areas such as the legs, hips, shoulders or chest. A dress like this can flatter even the most self-conscious of women.

Feathers and Furs – Another feature that caught all eyes on the runway is the fur and feather embellishment trend. These elements, which are typically only seen on the red carpet and in high fashion haute-couture, are now seen in designs for the everyday woman and are a must-have for your closet. Whether you choose a classic black fur jacket or a dress like this one by Riva Designs, these pieces will add luxury and detail to both your night and day looks. Keep in mind that there are plenty of alternatives to faux fur that are also eco-friendly!

Here at Love That Dress Boutique, we carry a seemingly-endless number of dresses that feature all of the new trends, so don’t forget to browse around and find the look that will demand attention this season!
