"I like your sleeves". Napolean Dynamite had the moves at formal dances, and the formal dresses from Colette by Daphne would be up to his standard. Whether you need a dress for the prom of the decade, cocktail hour, a black tie event or you mom's boring company gala, rock the night in a sleevelss, novelty glitter, a-line dress that opens at the back and highlights your inner-queen, or go bold in a sleeveless fit and flare gown that shows off leg and turns all the heads.

What is considered a formal dress?

A formal dress - it is considered the most formal of dress codes, reserved for black-tie events, galas and any formal ceremony. Considered for more a reserved style, formal dresses are usually paired with subtle pieces of jewelry, and while styles can be bold and radiant, a more refined style is typical.


Does formal attire mean a long dress?

Formalwear usually means the same as black tie, styling in long dresses in subtle colors of black, brown, dark blues and reds. In trendier cities like New York and Los Angeles, women occasionally wear cocktail dresses, long dresses or dressing evening separates.
