It’s formal time, collegiettes. November brings many stresses: the anticipation of finals, midterm papers, performances, and, of course, “OMG, mountain weekend is coming and I don’t have an invite!” to name a few. But amongst these worries is one beautiful night of stress-free relief to look forward to: formal.
Be it a fraternity semi-formal, a sorority My Tie, or another organization’s special night, this event gives collegiettes an excuse to get all dolled up, try out that new make-up tutorial found last week on YouTube, and have their hallmates curl their hair (and maybe buy some new shoes?).
With this fabulous event comes a special edition of Chic for Cheap. One might call it “Frugally Formal.” In any case, here is your guide to looking trendy and hot for formal, featuring not one, not two, but THREE fancy looks for less!
Option A: The Jumpsuit
Jessica Chastain, actress
Option B: Winter White with Cutouts
Gigi Hadid, model
Option C: Channel the Weather with Leather
Kerry Washington, actress
These options keep color to a minimum while bringing classy elegance to an all-time high. Make the look your own with your choice of shoes. Never neglect the powers of a bright lip, too. Stay chic, collegiettes, and, as always, it’s not what you wear but how you wear it!
