La Mode AfriWoman Forum and Dinner


ever received an invitation with the dress code ‘Formal’? , you’ll be familiar with the smorgasbord of sartorial queries that this seemingly straight-forward instruction throws up.

Does my dress have to be full length? Are bare shoulders acceptable? What about a deep V-neck? Or a bare back? Are thigh splits tacky yet?! Is there such thing as *too* bright?

Often regarded as one of the fashion world’s most panic-inducing instructions, it in fact welcomes a surprisingly broad array of options.

Other than the hemline (mid-to-full-length does tend to work best), you can wear near enough any colour, any cut, and any shape… and there’s very little chance you’ll ever manage to wear too manysequins.
