Formal events often have a specific dress code for their guests, and you want to be the belle of the ball while still maintaining the proper decorum. Let your beautiful evening gown carry you through the night. Formal gowns are generally full length, and so to spice up the formal look, you can go for a dress with an interesting neckline. For instance, a jeweled neckline creates a striking effect. Choosing a halter neck creates a breathtaking frame for your face, like this black halter neck evening gown. The neckline in a gown is always the crux of the outfit, so choose something that reflects the image you want to portray. Choose colours that go well with your personality. If you're fair-skinned you can opt for soft pastels like this beautiful turquoise dress. On the other hand, if you have a darker skin tone, rich colours such as navy or even a vibrant colour like this dramatic maroon will suit you well. You could choose from these different styles, colours, necklines and fabrics to decide your perfect special occasion dress! No matter what look you're going for, you want to choose a style that best suits you. You deserve to look your best at every special occasion, and these beautiful dresses will help create a winning outfit! After you have chosen your perfect dress, complement your hairstyle and makeup to complete your look – from the right eye makeup to the perfect evening clutch and other accessories.
