Ball gowns or any style of long formal dresses are typically worn to events such as balls, prom and dances. To get the right look, choose a color that suits your skin tone and add 1 - 2 pieces of elegant jewelry. A pair of formal shoes and a box clutch are must-have accessories for formal events. A formal hairstyle and makeup is also important when styling your stunning ball gown with the right finishing touches. The fit and flare shape of a ball gown ensures comfort and ease when taking to the dance floor and is famously flattering for most body types.

Formal Military Dresses
Formal military dresses are often conservative in style with a high neckline and full-length skirt. For a military ball, check your invitation for dress code details. You may be required or wish to match with the colors of a military uniform, so take the color of your ball gown into account when making your decision. Ball gowns should be floor length and can include a train or sexy leg split. You can select from many sparkling finishes such as bead-work or embellishment. You can also find lace formal dresses in a ball gown shape, as well as metallic and velvet fabric choices. A plunging neckline or backless cut-out is a gorgeous way to make your look stand out. Select the right accessories to complete your formal look. You may want to add formal gloves and a formal box clutch or envelope bag to complete your outfit, as well as glowing makeup and an up-do such as a chignon bun.
