Hey there my lovelies, hope you're all well~

I'm back today with another Modestly Stylish outfit for you, and today's theme is a formal dinner outfit. Black and beige are my go to colours, because they just look so classy together and they suit just about everyone too.

I'm loving H&M's blazers at the moment, I actually just bought a black blazer the other day from H&M and the quality is brilliant. My very first blazer was actually from there too, it's been two years and it still looks brand new!

For the trousers I thought they were a pretty good price for some smart but slim legged trousers. I don't particularly like the zips but they'll be covered by the dress anyway (^__^)

I love the dress, not too form fitting but gives your waist a little definition all the same. A nice simple, classy dress that you can dress up or down should be a staple in every girls wardrobe. I'd personally would obviously wear a top underneath this. 

Everyone's loving the studded craze these days so I thought I'd throw in a lovely studded bag, which I have to say I really like despite studs not being my thing! And as for the shoes.. well you can't go wrong with a pair of nude shoes can you? Plus I read somewhere that nude shoes make your legs look longer.. something short girls like me wouldn't mind having hehe.

I'd keep my makeup simple, maybe do the 'cat eye' liner style (if I ever get it right.. I can never get it even! >.<) and maaaaaaaybe a red lip if I was feeling brave. :P

What do you wear to a formal dinner party? 


  1. Nice outfit! I like the dress!


  2. Love the dress. It's so pretty! I want it now. : D

    1. Haha you and your love for pretty things Hareem! xD

  3. That dress is really cheap for how it looks. I have been searching for a Dinner Dance dress and that one is kind of along the line of what I wanted. It is gorgeous :) Thanks! x
