Spring and summer are the seasons of the formal occasions. They're the seasons where people get married, have Christenings, host fancy parties or even just BBQs in the garden; it's safe to say that with the approach of the warmer months comes a need to think up some posher looks for the incoming invites. Not to worry though! Coast have got our backs when it comes to formal dressing and I've put together a couple of formal looks to give you some inspiration for your SS16 parties!
Now this dress here is my absolute dream formal dress. Black? Check. Floral? Check. Feminine with a hint of grunge? Check. I graduate in June (eeeek how exciting/scary!) and will need a formal dress for the day and this would fit the bill perfectly. It's fancy without being too over the top and although it is black the floral embroidery and sheer hem makes it perfect for us black lovers. For this kind of formal look, simplicity is key as I think the dress should do all the talking. A simple coral lip, a bright clutch and some simple bracelets is all this look needs to be complete and as the dress is quite simple in itself, it makes a timeless piece that always has a place in your wardrobe no matter what the seasonal styles are.
What will you be wearing for formal summer occasions?
