So You’re Going to Formal…Now What do you Wear?

Ah, it’s spring quarter once again here at DU. As week four approaches us, it’s the perfect time to procrastinate on all that studying. What better way to avoid those midterm study guides than to hit up Nordstrom Rack or Pinterest “cooler painting ideas” throughout your *yawn*-worthy lectures? That’s right ladies, Formal season is near. Whether you’re waiting for that frat star in your accounting class to ask you to his formal or you’re tagging along with your best friend to hers, you’re going to need something (preferably jaw-dropping) to wear.

We’ve got you covered. Check out these ideas on what to wear and where to find them:

1. The LBD, $38, asos.com

You can never go wrong with a Little Black Dress & this swing dress from ASOS is perfect for dancing the night away with your date.

2. The Glam Dress, $188, nordstrom.com

There’s no better way to WOW your date than with a little sparkle.

3. The Cutout Dress, $349, renttherunway.com
