Formal Affairs

It is that time of year when, if you are involved in Greek life, you get to live out your dreams of prom once again.

College prom, that is. Usually referred to as formal. While the dresses are not as extravagant, and most of the time hair is done by friends and not a specialist, it is still such a fun event to get dressed up for.

As a new member in Kappa Delta, I have to wear white to formal.

At first, I was really turned off by this because I have never been a fan of white dresses that aren’t wedding gowns. I also have never like white on my skin-tone.

After ordering a dress, selling it and ordering something different and altering it I finally had a dress I was happy with.

The buttons down the back were what sold me in the first place. The deep back and fan sleeves are a delicate addition to an otherwise very simple dress.

I love sleeves on a dress, it makes me feel more comfortable. However, because I am so short dresses that fit tighter to my body have generally always looked better and made me not feel so short.


A high neckline and statement earrings made this simple white dress pop, and it was perfect for the occasion. I ordered the dress from ASOS in advance so I would have time to alter it, which is a tip I suggest everyone who needs a dress takes into consideration!

I’m just excited that next year, my color options will be endless.
