Bodycon dresses, trailing gowns, tuxedos, and black ties are the norm at formal events, but what if that’s not your style? Should you adhere to dress codes just to be in line with the ‘rules’ of fashion?
You do you, even when it comes to dressing up for a formal event. Our style inspiration this year is Tracee Ellis Ross, who chose to bend the rules with her fantastic bright red tracksuit at a black-tie event. Her outfit for the evening made a statement while still making her look amazing.
Here are some ways you can incorporate athleisure into a formal event:
Single-stripe sweatpants had been made quite popular by brands back in the day. These bottoms began to be known as tracksuit bottoms. Tracksuit bottoms, though super comfortable, have been revamped this season.
The striped detailing of the traditional tracksuit bottom has been incorporated into the more figure-hugging leggings. These leggings give you a fantastic silhouette, since it accentuates all your curves. For a night out, make sure you pair them with strappy heels. High heels help make your curves more prominent, while elongating your legs.
Tank tops will never go out of style! This versatile piece comes in a number of cuts, fits, colors, and self-prints as well. We believe there is a tank top for every occasion! Pair tank tops with cool jewelry pieces that you have. Its understated design makes it perfect for layering loads of necklaces while incorporating some chunky ones too. Tank tops can be paired with a variety of bottoms like, tailored jeans, baggy high-waisted trousers, pencil skirts, and even tailored dungarees.
Blazer up top
If in doubt, throw a blazer over it!
Blazers are another timeless addition to any lady’s wardrobe. It can instantly make any look more formal and structured. If you’re feeling a bit self-conscious about wearing athleisure to a formal event, just wear a basic blazer with it. Pair the right accessories with the look and wear it confidently wherever you go!
If you’ve chosen to keep your top more form-fitted, change up the texture by adding a pair of loose bottoms to the mix.
These days high-waisted striped trousers with ruffles up top have been really popular. They accentuate your shape and are ideal for wearing with a sports tanks top tucked in. Finish the look off with some pointy-toe heels!
