    Formal Dresses


    Winter Formal is a dance that happens at only a few schools. Lakewood is one of the very few schools that hold a formal. Formal is a dance that happens during the winter to celebrate winter sports coming to an end and welcome the spring sports.

    Dresses are what most girls lean towards when going to Formal. Stores that people typically get dresses from are Macy’s, Windsor or Dillards. Most stores in the mall are where people go to pick up a dress. Some people opt for online shopping and get dresses from places like Shein, Amazon or Etsy. Others pick a cheaper and riskier option and go to thrift stores to find dresses.

    The styles for dresses can vary so much. There’s the skater dress, which is tight on the top with a flowy skirt. There’s the bodycon, which is tight all over and usually short; some are midi length as well. There’s the long flowy dress or the slip dress which is usually satin. There are many more styles of dresses but these are the most common dresses seen at formal.

    Formal isn’t just any regular dance, it’s usually the last dance of the year. People want to buy the most memorable dresses and feel their best. No matter what style of dress is chosen, it’s always unique to each person, depending on the shoes or jewelry and hairstyles.

    Formal dresses could be very inexpensive and cute depending on where you get them. Finding the perfect one could be hard but it’s worth it for the night of the dance.
