An open back formal dress is beautiful on its own, but you know what we always say.. More is more, so dare to style your formal dress with glamorous jewelry and stylish heels that heighten your game. This makes it so you don't have to worry about the possibility of ripping your dress at the seam, should you or someone else step on it. Pretty smart, right?
Formal dress handling instructions
A formal dress is probably not one you're using every day, therefore it doesn't have to washed especially often either. It's usually enough to just hang it to dry, so it can air out a bit. If you need to wash the dress though, a hot tip is to follow the instructions on the wash tag or take it to a dry cleaner to ensure it lasts. If you have a lace maxi dress, it's important you wash it separately so no other clothing gets caught in the lace and ultimately rips it. The same thing applies to formal dresses with rhinestones. By washing them separately, you eliminate the risk of damaging the dress or other clothing with rhinestones leaving marks.
