Winter Formal! ❄️✨🎇
Posted on 11 November 2017
Is there anything more magical than Winter Formal? Long flowing ball gowns, starry nights, mermaid trains and perhaps a touch of snow! The Winter Formal Dance is one of our favourite special occasions to dress in the United States and Canada.
We never need an excuse to dress up, we would happily wear our most fabulous ball gowns to the supermarket to fetch our groceries, yet Winter Formal is one of the rare occasions you are encouraged to go all out and dress to the nines in your most glamorous frock, paired with showstopping makeup and dazzling accessories!
Winter Formal dresses are to be long, elegant and wearable for a night of dancing and casting glances at your sweetheart from across the ballroom. When thinking of Winter, we envisage rich, satiny tones of dark red, creamy nude, black and deep purple. A swish of sequins and fur never go amiss under an array of spotlights and a flush of bulbs.
Whether you are searching for a long Winter Formal dress or a modest midi length evening gown, here are out top picks for the Sweetheart Season at SHAIDE!
The Cavalli in Oxblood
One of our time tested favourites, the Cavalli gown by Abyss by Abby is a winner. With a full, flowing skirt, there is no other dress that screams Winter princess more than this one. With delicate boning on the bust to cinch you in, this beautiful gown closes with a back zipper and features a glamorous mermaid train for you to sashay down the castle steps at midnight!
The Manhattan Blue Sequin
A newcomer to SHAIDE, the Abyss by Abby Manhattan dress is proving to be quite the showstopper. With a sexy bardot, off the shoulder, this glamorous sequin evening dress tapers down in a figure hugging, bodycon column style to reveal a stunning mermaid train which will flow elegantly behind you. Our favourite part of all - the long sleeves. Bedazzled with all over sequins in a rich, midnight blue shade, this flawless long blue evening dress will have you looking and feeling like a billion bucks all night long.
The Valentina Sequin gown
Another new arrival to our impeccable eveningwear gown and dress collection is the Valentina black sequin dress by Abyss by Abby. With a sexy halterneck style neck, this gown features an alluring criss cross detail on the back, which makes it just as delicious as the front. With a deep plunging chest, this long black column gown is cut to perfectly provide an hourglass shape, together with a gorgeous mermaid train at the bottom.
