Who doesn’t like an opportunity to get fancy?Â The days of proms and sorority formals are long (but not that long…) behind me and I really don’t live the sort of lifestyle that involves a plethora of invitations to galas & black tie dinners. My only hope for a fancy affair would be peer pressuring friends into getting married, but since that would be unfair to them I’ll simply make do by pretending and thinking up fabulous things to (hopefully) someday wear.
The Presidential Inaugural Ball is coming up this Monday, January 21st, and while everyone is all a-buzz wondering what, or should I say who, Michelle Obama will wear with her new bangs, I started wondering what would I wear if I were attending such a special occasion. So in true Kinks are the New Pink form, I’ve created a few looks I think would be perfect for a night at the Inaugural Ball or any occasion that requires sparkly jewels Enjoy!
I love a formal dress in an unexpected color, you don’t see enough purple at formal events. The best part of this dress, however, is the back, hair swept to the side or in a simple up do is a must to show off this beauty.
This is probably my favorite look, we all know I love a pop of color (and sparkles) which this look has plenty to offer. A nude colored gown is classic and can be styled in so many ways, if you’re not one for brights but still want to add some color try rich jewel tones in purples, greens, and blues or for a softer look pair with light greys and creamy whites.
Now don’t you want to put on your fancy heels and hit the town? If you’re a fan of any of these dresses and have a special event coming up you can find them and more on Rent The Runway. Thanks for reading! Happy Friday!
