School Dance Season

This velvet dress by For Love & Lemons is so appropriate for winter.

Everyone knows that winter means holiday season, with Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentine’s Day all within a couple months. Between the holidays can be a bit of a winter lull…unless you’re in high school, of course, and getting ready for dance season! February is a month full of all kinds of high school dances, meaning it’s time to whip your heels out from the back of the closet and get ready for a fun night out with all your friends. Whether you’re going to a Sadie Hawkins, turnabout, or winter formal type dance, finding the perfect look can be a bit challenging. There are always several ways to go when choosing your school dance outfit, so check out our favorite styles below to get a sense of what direction you want to take:

Dress for the season. We love summer’s breezy dresses and bright prints, but dressing for winter is just as fun. Velvet is guaranteed to evoke a winter vibe, as is something with sophisticated long sleeves. Find a dress with both and you’ll be set for the season, not to mention turning heads as soon as you walk in the room.

Wear a little sparkle. Every girl knows that sparkle is the perfect way to kick up your confidence and draw much-deserved attention. Wearing a flashy dress with sequins or beading will be the perfect amount of dressy, and couldn’t be more fun.

Lisa Freede’s statement bracelet is a great accessory to freshen up an old dress.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Say you’re not in the mood to buy something new, the perfect accessories can totally change a look. Whether with your favorite jewelry, shoes, or fantastic outerwear, accessories can never hurt.

So what are you planning on wearing to your formal this year? I would love to hear!
