Although no snow is falling in Ventura, the “Snow Ball” is about to take place. Foothill’s Winter Formal is quickly approaching, and the search is on for the perfect dress to represent the theme.

In years past, the majority of dresses worn to Winter Formal have tended to be short and on the tighter side. There are usually a variety of shoe types and colors to go with the different dress styles, however high strappy pumps or high-heels have been extremely prevalent at the most recent dances.

This year, to involve the “Snow Ball” theme, people may wish to wear dresses of lighter colors, such as white, pink, silver, and beige. The fabric of these dresses can include chiffon, taffeta, lace, silk, velvet, and even cotton.

A short, strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline flatters almost every body type and is cute, yet simple. The dress can be fitted or free-flowing, depending on what vibe you’re going for. Depending on how “plain” the dress is, you can spice up the look with a pair of strappy high-heels or a ballet flat in a dramatic color.

High-low dresses are in style right now and could be the desired look for the “Snow Ball”. An elegantly designed high-low dress paired with wedges or a simple heel is a way to mix things up and add a unique twist for your Winter Formal look.

The asymmetrical, one-shouldered dress is always popular and fashionable. The dress can be tight and have some ruching, or be loose and resemble the Greek style. This style of dress can go with many different types of shoes, heels or flats.

These are just three examples of dresses that would play into the “Snow Ball” theme of Winter Formal. The perfect dress can enhance a dance and make it that much more magical.

    High low dresses are very hard to pull off in my opinion. And many times, the people that wear them don’t invest enough in the quality of the dress, which usually isn’t as complementary as the wearer would expect. (Ladies Kohls is good, but it’s not the Gucci Outlet store).
