Pair your long white formal dress with a jacket in a contrasting color such as cobalt, red, mustard etc and make it a perfect evening with your date. For a short white formal dress, you can opt for soft denim jacket thus it won’t make it look like too much effort has been pooled in (semi formal events) and you can always look chic in it. A bright colored blazer can give your white formal dress just the pop of color it needs.
3. Belting it
Whether you are opting for a sparkly bead or diamante studded belt for a long white formal dress for your prom or a brown color fashioned belt for a party where you have the cushion to dress down a bit; white sparkles at its best with this simple accessory. With short tunic style white formal dresses, a pair of gladiator sandals and matching handbag can be a splendid option. Strappy sandals can work well in metallic shades with a beautiful long white formal dress for a night out.
