My favorite type of formal wear has always been a simple black dress.
Nothing says quiet elegance like a black dress.
This is what I would wear as a spectator at an evening dance exhibition. I love the simplicity and elegance of the classic pearl jewelry. Pearl has luster rather than shine and sparkle which suits the graceful, clean lines of this dress.
I chose to pair two of the same necklace to fill in the neckline; I would adjust one slightly longer so that it appears to be one very full necklace.
Closed toe T-strap shoes are simple, beautiful and more comfortable than strappy, sandal heels. I love the look of wide, matching pearl cuff bracelets for each arm. Because the dress and accessories are so simple, I would carry a purse with unique feature, like this ladylike bow clutch.
I would feel like a million bucks in this evening wear........I'm ready for the next big event!
