It’s important to remember your military ball when you were asked to attend a ball. You are lucky enough as a military partner or spouse. For most of the ladies, the ball also is good chance to show you’re classy and elegant.
So how to choose your ball gown dress is also having lots of fun.
Because it’s called “military ball gown”, so the dress should be floor length. Before you shopped, I think you are warned by your military husband or boyfriend. Don’t wear too short dress; don’t choose a low cut neckline dress. So the length should be full length ball gown which Peter has a corset back. Because the shorter length will be looks like casual and not appropriated for a military ball gown.
Don’t choose to reveal or over exposed gown. Strapless’ is fine, but not choose low-cut strapless. A shallow sweetheart is modesty and best choice. You can also wear a shawl to cover your shoulder.
Some classic ball gown fabric is in silk taffeta or other silk fabric if you are in middle age. Tulle or net overlay ball gown is appropriated for some young lady. If the event in the summer, they just choose some light fabric like chiffon or silk. If the event in the winter, then you can choose some heavy fabric like taffeta with a petticoat.
If you want to look classy but also vintage, then you can choose some dark color gowns like navy blue with little sparkles. If you want to show your elegance, then just choose a ball gown with little embroidery or just few pleats.
Wear a glove and cloak is also important for your military ball. Don’t wear too much jewels, just wear a pair of crystal shining earrings with necklace will be fine. Don’t wear too high heel shoes because you will have a dance in the evening.
However the best guideline is to wear something you feel comfortable, so that you can behave better your classy and your own taste
