It is easy to be formal with BeFormal

New Year’s Eve is just right around the corner! Any plans yet? When Australia BeFormal asked me to have a look at their collections I couldn’t resist. I love gowns. <3 They have a huge collection of formal dresses, special occasion dresses, wedding dresses, wedding party dresses, and accessories. Their dresses start with US size 2 and are available up to a US size 26W. Custom sizing is also possible. Furthermore, depending on the dress they offer over 20 different colors! Currently, long formal dresses at Australia BeFormal are between 5% and 80% off and quite affordable.

They have hundreds of awesome dresses that my younger me would have loved to wear. Well, let’s live in the today and leave them for your daughters and our nieces. The picks in this post are my favorite fashion over 40 choices.

Sheath dress with lace

A BeFormal LBD is always a good idea and worth an investment especially when it is a classic cut like a sheath. A sheath works for so many occasions. Add long chandeliers and strappy silver heels and you are ready for the New Year’s Eve party. Just add pearl studs and a gold brooch with golden open-toe pumps and a patent leather clutch and it works for a mother-of-the-bride/groom dress. Add red pumps and a red stole with ruby studs and you can wear it for the office holiday party. Dress it down with Keds and a jeans jacket for First Friday.

Posh sheath/column scoop 1/2 sleeves bow knot knee-length lace mother of the bride dress

I always liked the Duchess of Cambridge in her royal blue lace dress with white lining. So chic! BeFormal has one in a similar style, but with a price tag for a woman with a normal income. The little cropped jacket is a perfect cover-up when watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Sultry sweetheart asymmetry long sleeves black lace evening dress

Heading to the Opera or Broadway? What about this lace asymmetric hem beauty? I love the high-low hem. So Argentine Tango! So sexy! Especially paired with a high neckline and long sleeves. It leaves room for imagination. It is just the perfect combination between sultry and modest! Perfect for every woman with style.

Vintage high neck mermaid/trumpet backless floor-length formal dress

When I was a kid, I never understood the mermaid. May be I am just too logical. However, what I understood was that my romantic girl friends were angry at the Prince. If you are a hard-die romantic you will love this mermaid dress. As a matter of fact, I love the nude color with the embellishment. In a dimmed-down room this dress will make an entrance. On first sight, the wearer and the dress are just one, like a mermaid. 😉

Beautiful ball gown knee length flower tulle party dress

At last, my absolute favorite. It is the ballroom dancer in me that loves the BeFormalballroom gowns. I would love to dance the Emperor Waltz played by the Viennese Philharmonic in their beautiful ballroom dresses with my husband on New Year’s Eve <3 . How fun would that be? 🙂
