Formal Season Autumn 2018

If you have an upcoming formal in September, October or November 2018, act fast and get an appointment booked with Belle Dress Hire ASAP. It may seem like “ages away” but finding the perfect dress for your school formal can be time consuming AND stressful!

Hiring a dress for such an occasion takes all the stress out of the experience with no queues for fitting rooms or tills as well as one to one advice and guidance with Belle Dress Hire owner, Leeanne, throughout the appointment.

Once you have the dress picked then the rest just falls into place because you can style around your gown. For example, decided to go with a low back style? I suggest keeping the hair up or off to one side to make sure the full effect of the open back is revealed. A halter neck or low cut V neck definitely calls for loose curls to soften the harsh lines of the fabric. The style of dress will 100% affect your choice of make up in terms of colours and also your accessories. Therefore, I can’t stress enough how important it is to select a dress sooner rather than later if you have a formal coming up.

The photo below shows the great results achieved by taking the time to find the perfect silhouette.

This neckline is perfect for those with a fuller bust as it gives much needed support to the bust. The mesh fabric shows a hint of flesh but keeps everything elegant and sophisticated. The pull to one side of the fabric at the waist is a design feature which is fantastic at hiding and softening some of the curves we’d rather keep hidden! The vibrant red looks good on everyone! Blondes, brunettes even redheads can wear this magnificent shade just make sure to have a little tan on the skin to really make the colour pop.
