While many of us associate long gowns as a typical ‘red carpet event’ outfit, there are many other occasions where a regular gal could rock a gown. Formal events show up in the most random times, whether it’s an invite to your distant cousin’s wedding or a formal gathering of your contemporaries, wearing a gown could be acceptable in each situation. Another big event that is coming up for many high school seniors is Prom Night, where looking good is the only way to show up. So no matter what big event you’ve got marked down on your calendar, a modern day take on the ball gown could be just the ticket to dropping everybody’s jaws. One of our current gown obsessions at the moment happens to be the ASOS Off The Shoulder Bardot Fishtail Maxi Dress. This stunning dress features silky-feel fabric, a Bardot neckline, adjustable straps, swig skirt insert, zip back fastening, and a slim fit. The dress is a stunning oxblood shade that complements a wide variety of skin tones as well as giving you room to rock a bunch of different makeup looks. Wear your hair up in a sleek bun to achieve that old Hollywood glam look, or wear it tousled down in some loose waves for a more modern touch. The dress is currently available on the ASOS site for $128, making it a bit of a splurge item. However, you’ll be sure to drop jaws and look stunning in this beautiful gown.
