Fashion, Popular Culture & Entertainment

Recently having my own graduation ball, I found that searching for the perfect dress was hard work. So I decided to write about a few of my favourites showing what I thought were affordable and easy to purchase as a high-street buy. I wanted to gather a collection of what could be for the specific occasions that are similar such as prom/college/graduation etc.

Here is my top five:

1. // Blush Hour Tulle Dress 

 Nasty Gal //

// £137

Presented in the most mad blush, this dress can separate as a light pink bodice with a skirt as an attachment. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline and the skirt is made in floor length tulle. Perfect for prom.

2. // Ariana Grande Cutout Body Maxi Dress

Lipsy //

// £68.00

This evening wear gown is my ultimate favourite, also the one I wore to my graduation. Cutout design with a rushing detail on the waist, team up with a pair of silver high heels and clutch bag for a classic red carpet look.


3. // Limited Edition Long Dress

Zara //

// £49.99

Zara’s limited edition, plunges from the neckline with a glittered tint to glam up the simple style of a maxi dress. Cut out back with detailed strap-lines.

4. // Pleated Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress


// £75.00

This lined body is pleated chiffon on the sleeves with a plunge neckline, open back with strap detail, nude colour is so in for this season. Grab while you can.

5. // Premium Leaf Embellished Mini Dress Blue

Misguided //

// £95.00

Embellished detailing on this dress is something I’m crushing on at the minute. Nude mesh finish and mini dress for underneath works amazingly well together, also with a discreet zip to the side for a comfortable finish. Wear with nude heels to keep those eyes on the dress.

Hope this helps with ideas if you have a certain occasion cropping up soon! Let me know in the comments what your favourites are this season, or what your favourite is from my top picks.
