What makes this dress so fabulous is that you can wear it for multiple occasions–it’s dressy and semi-formal, but it’s not so over the top that you could only label it “prom.” I would totally rock this on date night and depending on the fabric, maybe the day, too. With this particular dress in its peachy-gold shade, I think makeup can be kept quite simple, focusing on playing up natural features through careful foundation application, contouring, etc. You can easily pair this with a bold red or berry lip, but you could do a warm coral, as well. Because it is a light color, there are limitless opportunities for looks. For eyes, I think it is key to go for a light gold (peachy-gold, even) like shades of Goldmine, Motif, Rose Blanc, etc. A cat eye would work well in this, especially if one were to go for matte or semi-matte red lips.

Check out suggested looks: one, two, & three. Dress is available at Nordstrom.com for $78.00 (um, steal!).
