The year is coming to a close, and that can only mean one thing…formal time! Whether you’re graduating, finished exams, or have a fun end of year ball, you’ll definitely need an outfit for the occasion. We’ve searched high and low to gather some jaw-dropping formal gowns for you to rock this year!


Every gal needs a little (or not) black dress! For a classic, elegant formal look, we love the Revive Maxi Dress. This black formal dress is the perfect balance of sex appeal and class! We love a bit of a leg slit for the perf uni ball pic for insta! You can never go wrong with a black formal dress; it basically goes with eveything, right?

The silky fabric, leg slit, and cowl neck all drape perfectly, so you look effortless all night. Style with layered necklaces like the Faithful Necklace Set, and a bold lip to keep your look sophisticated and fierce!


This is your special night, you deserve to make a statement! The Arden Maxi dress is an absolute showstopper, with a classic sweetheart neckline and hourglass silhouette. This red formal dress is for the gals out there who love showing off their curves! You’ll for sure be the belle of the ball in this super sexy number.

Honestly, if we could wear it every day, we would! Simple black heels complete the look, so check out the Billini Dita Heel in Black Suede.


Every girl should feel like a princess at formal, and you definitely will in the Madeline Sequin dress! The shimmering gold glitter and luxurious blush lining pair perfectly with nude or metallic heels, like the Billini Seychelles Wedges

For an angelic rose-gold glow, we recommend adding a dusting of highlighter, soft-pink makeup, and fluttery lashes!
