Four complete looks to inspire any formal affair

We may not all get the opportunity to strut the red carpet or wear priceless couture and jewels, but that does not mean that the everyday woman can't look just as stunning for their own formal occasion. Who doesn't like catching the eye of everyone in the room and standing out for all the right reasons. Here are four red carpet ready looks to inspire your next formal affair.

Jarlo button through maxi dress with lace insert, in navy, is stunning while leaving oglers a bit of mystery. Give the look some edge with these ASOS TOWER embellished shoe boots. Forget the traditional accessories and make a real statement with the ASOS PREMIUM Waterfall headband & hand harness and a little extra interest with an ASOS semi precious rectangular stone ring.

For a more whimsical look try the ASOS maxi dress with an embellished waist, in nude. Draw some interest downwards with a small pop of color, New Look's simple nude mid heeled sandals have it with a punch of pink. With the neckline of the dress, a necklace might be too much so play up other accessories. ASOS filigree chain chandelier earrings are a great eye catcher especially with a sleek up-do. One more piece of body decor ties a bracelet and ring into one with the PL by Peter Lang arrow hand chain.

Those wanting to channel the typical sexy look of J. Lo. can achieve it in the AQ AQ halterneck maxi dress, with an open front. ASOS HIGHLAND heeled sandals really amp up the sex appeal. With the impact from the dress on its own, the only other item to accompany the ensemble are these ASOS jewel cluster earrings.

The Little Mistress printed bandeau maxi dress strays away from the typical solid but is still a classic. Keep the shoes simple and timeless with ASOS PUNCHLINE peep-toe platforms. Glam it up with matching Oasis opaque statement collar and Oasis opaque statement drop earrings, and complete the look with this New Look sleek sandblast cuff.
