Where to Wear a Two Piece Formal Outfit
Two piece formal outfits can be worn to plenty of different events. Let's break it down by each category.
Whether you have your school formal coming up, or a university ball around the corner, the point is you want to make a statement with a two piece formal dress.
Black tie/formal dress codes give you endless options for formal two piece sets as you can opt for sequin or corset styles, for a more statement look, or stick to a classic style and make it your own look with unique accessories to match.
You'll find the cocktail dress code applied to events such as weddings, work events, gala dinners, bridal parties and so on. The cocktail dress code is the in between of formal and casual. The perfect two-piece set for a cocktail dress code would be more understated and simple but elegant.
This means, simple colours and fabrics, steering away from sequin materials. We love a corset style two piece set, or elegant styles such as satin. You can easily accessorise block colours with neutral accessories or complimentary colours to elevate the look.
If your birthday is around the corner, and you are looking for the perfect birthday outfit, a two piece formal dress is a standout.
For extra glam birthday outfits we love sequin two piece formal dresses. For an elegant look for a birthday lunch, we love our understated statement corset two piece sets.
You can look put together with minimal effort just by wearing a coordinated two piece set! Wearing a two piece formal dress really depends on the type of wedding you're going to as a wedding guest. If you're going to a conservative wedding, showing a lot of skin may not be acceptable, but if you're still wanting to wear a two piece set, you can definitely get away with a high-waisted skirt, and a long sleeve crop.
How to Style a Formal Two Piece Set
Styling formal two piece sets is much easier than you would think. You have your outfit doing all the work for you, so you do not need to add a bunch of accessories to pull together your look.
Classic neutral colours and minimal jewellery is your best bet when it comes to accessorising a formal two piece set. It's easy, convenient and still has your outfit as the statement piece. All colours go well with neutrals which is why you can never go wrong.
Big, Bold and Colourful
If you love a pop of colour, you can utilise complementary colours to your advantage. If your two piece formal dress is a block colour, accessorising with a statement heel and clutch will elevate your look to a whole new level. You will not only look effortlessly put together, but you will also look extra glam.
Metallics are also another great way to accessorise as they always add an extra touch of drama to your look.
