This look describes the classic woman of class with an edge (outside the realm of what is usually worn). Go hard or go home🤭 #FormalOnEdge

Outfit details with some great tips!

Dress:

Tip 1:

Know your body type and what accentuates your body. Try different styles until you can identify what works best. There is nothing wrong with a little trial and error; we have all been there.

Style- Floor-length, long sleeve, mermaid cut (custom-made). The mermaid cut gives an elongated look and works great for short ladies who want to pull off a floor-length dress.

Tip 2:

Find a seamstress that can execute your vision.

Fabric – White sheer lace (stretchy), with black lining and faux fur

Make-up:

It is important to have a complete vision of your entire look.

Accessorizing plays a critical role in this vision.

Tip 3:

Browse the net for looks that are similar to what you want and this can save you time. Screenshot the ideas of what you want so you have some tangible help to describe your mental picture.

The ‘something blue’ look – Maybelline Fit Me Matte foundation and Poreless in the shade Coconut 355. For the eyelids, we went with a neutral blend with browns and a hint of shimmer shadow. On my lower lids, we used ELF white primer and placed a light blue eyeshadow to set the primer on the lids. A black pencil liner was used to line my lips and then a navy blue eyeshadow on top. To highlight the center of my lips, we used the same light-blue eye shadow that was used on my lower lids.

Jewelry and Shoes:

Tip 4:

The most outstanding thing that you are wearing will catch the eye of your audience first, in most cases at least.

Therefore, decide which aspect of your outfit you want to have that BOOM!

I knew my dress was gonna be gorg so I accessorized around that and allowed it to shine. I also took into consideration that, based on its length, it would cover my shoes and I would not need to go overly extravagant on the shoes – subtle, yet cute, was my choice.

Shoes – Ribbon winner, pointy, lace-up heels (black) from Go Jane.

I went almost bare on jewelry. An ear knob and ear top clip-on completed my edgy look.
