FOR­MAL EVENTS

Prima (UK) - - Wow Makeovers -

Black-tie events or balls mean a more glam ap­proach to evening wear. Make an en­trance in a knock-out party dress and glit­tery ac­ces­sories, like Tess and Sarah.

Check the dress code. A spe­cial oc­ca­sion or char­ity ball may re­quire a more for­mal full-length gown. If you’re at­tend­ing a drinks re­cep­tion, you may be able to wear a cocktail dress.

Love dressing in all black? Mix­ing tex­tures, like Sarah, is your fast track to chic.

A dress isn’t the only way to daz­zle. A sleek trouser suit with a crisp shirt or a full satin skirt with a silky blouse are other party-per­fect out­fit ideas. Sparkling jew­ellery will take your out­fits to a whole new level of gor­geous!
