While you may or may not have snagged tickets to the highly coveted, high profile political event of the year you need to dress the part.
For the frugal fashionista, wowing at your next formal gala is easy; Stay away from prints, they can look cheap if not done correctly. Go for bright, solid colors in classic cuts or fine metallic finishes in updated shapes.
A classic sheath is a great shape and if the fabric or construction is cheap, it will hide well. I love the color of this one by BB Dakota. The fun and flirty cut out sheath dress by Susana Monaco is updated yet still classic. Try a metallic sheath with embellished sleeves for added shine, like this one by Ladakha.
A full circle skirt makes a sheath neckline a little younger yet still very tasteful. In a metallic brocade fabric and the look is luxe and rich. I love this one by BB Dakota.
Flowy and simple strapless dresses are always chic and elegant. This metallic, high low dress by Krissa is perfectly modern and timeless chic at the same time. If accessorized correctly a simple strapless dress can be elegant and dressy. Pair this dress by Riller & Fount with a heavy chain choker.
So wether you are attending the real thing or an unofficial viewing party, these dresses will wow the senator and save your pocketbook.
