Pick Formal Dresses for Military Ball

Military balls generally have a formal dress code, with the service personnel wearing their dress uniform. This means, when you are looking for dresses for military ball, you will want to look for:

  • Long dresses – most women will wear floor length dresses for military ball, to fit in with the formal atmosphere. While you can get away with wearing knee length or midi dresses, make sure they are smart
  • Minimal embellishments – while a few beads and sequins as accents are suitable, a military ball can have a somber tone in places, so avoid styles that scream ‘party’
  • Modest styles – a dress that’s modest doesn’t have to be dull. For example, if you look at high neck dresses, you could choose something that’s still form-fitting and sleeveless. Sophisticated styles such as off the shoulder dresses or classic ball gowns work well
  • Single color dresses – these are a safer bet than bold patterns or anything that’ll make you stand out for the wrong reasons Some things to avoid at most military balls would include:
  • Short dresses, which is basically anything above the knee. Not only will you be showing off too much skin, you may also feel underdressed compared to other women
  • Plunging necklines
  • Bare midriffs

Too much sparkle – i.e. dresses covered in sequins When you visit our Chicago store, our experienced staff can help you pick out a dress that’s appropriate for your dress code. Or you can shop online and easily pick the options you want, from sleeve length to neckline, and enjoy ground and expedited shipping right across the United States, so it has never been easier to find the right dress.

Ball Dresses that Complement your Loved One’s Uniform

When you go to a military ball, you’ll notice that most people wear colors that complement the dress uniform of their loved one, as well as patriotic or classic jewel colors. Red military ball dresses are popular with spouses and partners of those in the Marine Corp. This is because their dress uniform has red accents, so when you search for marine ball dresses, you’ll notice lots of women wear various shades of red. Red military ball dresses look great on women with most skin tones, and they’re bold and eye-catching while still being elegant. While there’s no particular rule about colors for marine ball dresses, it may be an option to consider. Events thrown by the Marine Corp are often very formal and full of ceremony, so it’s important to get the right look and fit in. When choosing Army ball dresses, there are lots of options to choose form when it comes to colors. Army dress uniforms have gold embellishments such as buttons, so you may opt for a gold dress, which can be striking, but again, keep it understated and opt for satin rather than a gold sequined number. Try looking at prom dresses, as they often come in metallic shades. Some partners choose Army ball dresses in green or navy tones, as they are close to uniform colors. Partners choosing formal dresses for military ball in the Navy division will often opt for blue tones. Wearing nautical themed colors makes sense when choosing Navy ball gowns, so dresses blue, white or red are good choices. However, when you see women in Navy ball gowns, there are likely to be a range of colors on display.

Black Military Ball Dresses are a Stylish Choice

Choose one of Peaches Boutique’s black military ball dresses and you will look elegant and can even wear the dress to a future occasion.
