In case you haven’t already heard, silk is super in this season, as is anything with spaghetti straps. So it should come as no surprise that the strappy maxi dress is an essential piece to spice up your wardrobe this formal season. Featuring long straps that you can style to your liking, a cheeky side split and a halter neck, this dress will help you can encompass the trifecta of trendy at your next big occasion. Whether you’re counting down to the New Year or singing happy birthday, you’ll definitely be hashtagging squad goals in this gorgeous gown.

3. The LBD (Long Black Dress)

Yes, you read correctly. Put away your minis and your micros because this formal season it’s all about the long black dress! Fashionistas may love the classic Coco Chanel and Jean Patou Little Black Dresses of the 1920s, but this year we’ve added a little more length and some sexy detail to the neckline for a femme fatale look. Matching the original LBD for versatility and timelessness, the long black dress accentuates your figure and falls stylishly to the floor with an old Hollywood vibe. Featuring on-trend cross-over detail, this frock is perfect to pull out for any occasion if you’re wanting to leave a lasting impression.
