What to Wear: Sorority Formal

Sorority Formal is a month away, and sadly, this is my last formal. Let's not talk about how old I am that right now though. I'm not ready to think about how much I'll be crying that night (it's my last, meaning theirs lots of emotional senior send-off traditions at the event). 

Let's talk about the fact that I still don't have a dress for the occasion!

Thankfully, Macy's MStyle Lab always has my back. I bought my semi-formal dress from Macy's last semester so I know I can trust them to have stylish dresses for my sorority's senior formal. After browsing through the Macy's app, as part of the #MacysCampusTour campaign, on my iPhone, I found these three dresses that I am absolutely in love with! 

Shoes: Silver // Nude // Gold

If you haven't heard yet, radiant orchid is the Pantone color of the year for 2014 which means purple is hot, hot, hot right now! I really love how simple this purple chiffon dress is yet it has a touch of glamour with the rhinestoned straps. I would pair this dress with silver foiled heels. I almost went for a pair of sparkly glitter heels but thought that would be too high school prom. For sorority formal, the silver foil is a more mature/collegiate look.

I think this middle look is my favorite of the three. I can definitely see myself wearing this pretty light pink dress. The only problem: I'm paler than a ghost! Perhaps after using my Jergan's sunless tanning lotion, I could pull this look off without looking washed out. I would wear nude heels with this dress to make my legs look extra long.

How can any sorority girl resist a dress with a big bow on it?! This red bow dress is absolutely adorable, though maybe a bit young for me. If I chose this dress, I would pair it with gold foil heels and accessories to give it some edge. 

Which dress do you think I should wear for senior formal?

With Love,

  1. I think you should wear the middle one.

  2. Personally I love the red dress! I got very emotional at my last sorority formal (back in 2011! old alert!). But lots of people will so it's nothing to be ashamed of ;) x

  3. I actually think the bow dress is both the cutest and the most "formal-esque" but that is just me (:

    Good luck deciding! (:

  4. The red one looks the most "you" (as far as what I know about you)--get that one!
