How to create the perfect ballroom look tutorial!

by Goddiva Account 03 Nov 2022

There are thousands of events taking place each month and the dress code varies according to the occasion. Today we will be focusing on how you can rock the absolute ballroom look that will suit your figure, style and dress code! A ball-room event is often described as a formal dance party featuring ball gowns and glamorous attires. It can be a bit tricky finding the ideal dress for the occasion. The best way to understand the concept is to view Strictly Come Dancing styles. They are the most accurate representation of a ball look along with amazing dancing routines.

You have to look classy and elegant whilst trying to find an outfit that will give you freedom of movement to dance all night and feel comfortable. Thanks to the brilliant Goddiva collection, we may have the most ideal dress for you.

For starters, your dress must be elegant and make you stand out from everyone else. Sequin designs are usually your best choice when wanting to look luxurious and shine through the night. Long sleeves add a touch of elegance and are of course a great choice during the autumn/winter seasons. If you have a curvy silhouette with a smaller waist, then a tight-fitting, mermaid-style dress will fit you like a glove whilst showcasing and highlighting your stunning figure.

When dressing up for a ballroom event, one thing is certain, the bigger the better! The puffier design along with a flowing skirt is an iconic choice for any occasion. While you waltz on the dance floor, the sequin fabric and flowing skirt will make you shine and resemble a Disney princess.

The secret to creating a unique and stunning ballroom look is to make a bold statement with your style. Colours are the main ingredient in choosing your outfit, whether it is softer tones like baby pink or yellow to bolder looks with Royal blue or red. If you want to stand out in the room, then choose your favourite colour and then combine it with the design of your dreams.

A ball gown must be accompanied by equally beautiful heels. The shinier the better! A low heel is ideal for a night at the ball, as you will definitely want to feel as comfortable as possible when dancing all night long. It’s important to choose a pair of heels that will strap well around the foot and to have some space in front of the toes so you won’t get sore feet.

If you are a high-heel type of person, no problem! You can wear any style of shoe you like as long as it suits the occasion and the full outfit. For example, if you choose to wear a dress with lighter tones or white, then we suggest you wear a suede shoe in a bold colour, like hot pink, to make it stand out from the rest of the outfit and look stylish and unique!

To complete your glamorous look, grab a fancy clutch bag with diamonds, to put all your essentials inside. The more diamonds the better, in order to suit your entire outfit and look like the queen that you are. Shine all night long and have fun! 

There are hundreds of looks that you can choose from for your upcoming event. A ballroom look is all about glamor and sophistication, so rock your outfit and feel confident with your style. For more stunning pieces go to Goddiva
