The cookies have been consumed. Gifts torn open. Parties attended to. Resolutions? ….Let’s not go there. We hesitate to even use the word “resolution” since it indicates something needs fixing, which to be honest, seems draining from the start.
From wellness to wardrobe, this year, why not make small adjustments that lead to a more gradual shift, like incorporating more movement into your day versus forcing yourself to that spin class you kinda-sorta hate? As for style, we’re not talking about revamping your whole closet (because seriously, who has the time or money?) Instead, freshen up your formal fashion with small tweaks here and there. We highlighted 3 below that are perfect for the upcoming prom and wedding season; scroll to get started.
Have Fun with Embellishments
Shop: Bead Mock Neck Tiered Taffeta Dress Trumpet Illusion Dress
Because half the fun of getting dressed up is the extra factor. Sequins and beading take the spotlight here, but if you’re fashion taste is on the subtle side, scale down the sparkle by opting for dresses with applique, glitter, or lace. Or, opt for just a beaded bodice instead of head to toe sequins. Either way, your entrance will shine.
Find a Go-To LBD
Shop: Short Lace Plunge Dress Mock Neck Rhinestone Dress
From a wedding to homecoming to that random cocktail party: when fashion calls, these dresses always answer. Think of them as the fashion equivalent of your reliable BFF. Whether it’s little or long, a black dress like this rhinestone or plunging lace number is chic, timeless, and always up for a re-wear.

Mermaid, A-line, ballgown…oh, my! With so many practical and playful options, why not stray from your tried-and-true style for something out of the box? Or, go for a slight difference to your usual.
